Dominant Liverpool frustrated by unbeaten Man United

Despite dominating their Premier League game against Manchester United at Anfield on Saturday, Liverpool were held to a frustrating goalless draw.

The home team were on top for long periods and peppered the Red Devils’ goal with 19 shots, but a combination of outstanding goalkeeping by United’s David de Gea and poor finishing denied them a decisive moment.

Jose Mourinho’s side offered very little quality in attack although one of Romelu Lukaku’s fierce attempt was smartly saved by Liverpool goalie Mignolet in the first half.

The point took United to 20 points, enough to take them top of the table before Manchester City resumed their spot with victory over Stoke later on Saturday.

Mourinho was however pleased with the draw. He said, “A point, in this long marathon? A point at Anfield is OK.”

The Reds boss, Jurgen Klopp insisted his side did put up a good performance. “I thought worthy of three points, but we were unlucky in at least two, maybe three situations.”

Both teams will be playing at the Champions League next week.
