The much anticipated match up between league leaders Liverpool and Manchester United ended in a one all draw.
Goals by Marcus Rashfold on the 36th minute and Adam Lallana on the 85th minute ended Liverpool’s endless streak, one short record 18.
Liverpool’s winning run ends at 17, one short of the record, but they will be happy enough after Adam Lallana’s late equaliser put them six points clear at the top.
Although it was a scruffy game of few chances, there was always something going on and it was fascinating tactically. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer set United up expertly in the first half, with a 3-4-1-2 formation and split strikers, but they ran out of steam in the second. And although Liverpool were nowhere near their awesome best, they deserved a draw for their persistence and territorial dominance.
There was VAR controversy, inevitably, and a soupçon of needle. United look deflated because of the late equaliser. When the dust settles, they will reflect on a pretty good day. Marcus Rashford.
