Liverpool held to goalless draw by Manchester Utd

Published




Liverpool and Manchester United played to a goalless draw at Anfield in a match that lacked excitement and quality.

The best chance of the game came from Manchester United, as Rasmus Hojlund tested Alisson Becker with a smart shot in the second half. United, however, struggled to push forward and conceded most of the territory and possession to the home team.

During a lackluster first half, Liverpool maintained passive control and earned several corners. Only one corner led to a save from Andre Onana, who denied a header from Virgil van Dijk.

In the second half, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low drive narrowly missed the target, and Liverpool found themselves resorting to long-range shots. Diogo Dalot received a red card in injury time, but it was too late for Liverpool to capitalize on the numerical advantage.

This draw marks Manchester United’s first in the Premier League this season, potentially relieving some pressure on manager Erik Ten Hag after recent disappointing performances. 

The point earned elevates Liverpool to the second spot in the table, ahead of Aston Villa on goal difference and one point behind leaders Arsenal.
