Manchester United 0-0 Liverpool |Injury marred United hold, off Liverpool

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer held Liverpool to a goalless draw at Old Trafford, despite Manchester United having to endure series of injuries in just the first half of the game.

Solskjaer used up all his sub before half time, with Ander Herrera leaving the field for Andreas Perreira, and Juan Mata replaced by Jesse Lingard who was eventually taken off two minutes before half time.

Marcus Rashford however bravely carried on, as Jurgen Klopp failed to test the red devils despite having the bigger share of possession at the end of the game.

The best chance of the first half, arguably fell for Jesse Lingard, whose attempt to round Becker Allison was superbly denied, before the winger was eventually taken off for Alexis Sanchez.

Paul Pogba was presented with a glorious opportunity in the second half, but the midfielder could only find the safe palms of Allison.

Liverpool would however have an offside ruling to thank, as Joel Matip’s own goal was judged as offside, after Chris Smalling met with a Luke Shaw’s free kick to nearly send United ahead.

Both clubs would eventually share the points, as Jurgen Klopp climbed back to the top of the Premier League table. While United dropped below Arsenal, who beat Southampton 2-0 earlier in the day to sit fourth and above Manchester United by a single point.
