The Red Devils were without Cristiano Ronaldo, who was absent following the death of his new-born son.

During the game, both sets of supporters paid a moving tribute with applause in the seventh minute.

While Liverpool go two points ahead of City at the top, Manchester United, who could have moved level on points with fourth-placed Tottenham, remain sixth.

On Saturday, the Red Devils will face fifth-placed Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
