Premier League: Injury-Hit Man United Frustrate Liverpool In A Stalemate

Liverpool were left frustrated on Sunday by injury-ravaged Manchester United, after they were forced to a goalless draw in the Premier League at Old Trafford.

 

The Jurgen Klopp’s men lacked the ability to break down a United side, who had to make all their three substitutions under the 60th minute mark due to injuries.

The hosts lost midfielder, Ander Herrera within the opening 30 minutes. Juan Mata also gave way to Jesse Lingard, an injury returnee, who was also later replaced by former Arsenal man, Alexis Sanchez.

Liverpool also had their injury share, when striker, Roberto Firmino, was taken off within the half-hour mark.

The constant disruptions in the game, which was expected to live up to an intense encounter, resulted in a disjointed first half, and neither side could truly find their rhythm after the break.

Liverpool failed to truly test United keeper, David de Gea. Daniel Sturridge, who replaced Firmino took a distance shot; their only effort on target in the 90 minutes.

United had the best chance of the game, but Allison brilliantly denied Lingard after he ran on to Romelu Lukaku’s pass and attempted to go around the Reds keeper.

With Manchester City in action in the Carabao Cup final, the result means Liverpool move a point ahead of the log with 11 matches to go.

United drop to fifth place, with Arsenal leap-frogging them after a 2-0 home win over Southampton.
