Manchester United frustrated by Liverpool in goalless draw

Liverpool and Manchester United shared the spoils as they played out a goalless draw at Anfield in Saturday’s early kickoff.

David De Gea produced the moment of the match in a lively first-half, saving excellently with his feet to deny Joel Matip from close range.

United’s best chance fell to Romelu Lukaku who saw Simon Mignolet equal to his effort when presented with a view of goal from 15 yards out. The striker also clumsily fouled Joe Gomez and appeared to catch Dejan Lovren’s face with his heel when the pair challenged for the ball during a frustrating first period.

Emre Can went close for Liverpool after the break but shot over from close range, with neither side creating many clear-cut opportunities to break the deadlock.

For the second season running Liverpool and Manchester United played out a goalless, but entertaining, draw at Anfield.

United were indebted to David De Gea for some excellent goalkeeping.

His best save came on 35 minutes when he stuck out a foot to deny Joel Matip from close range, before Mohamed Salah missed the rebound.

United might have equalised just before the interval but Romelu Lukaku was thwarted by Simon Mignolet after a one-touch move involving the Belgian and Anthony Martial.

On 55 minutes Joe Gomez picked out Emre Can who volleyed wide, and Dejan Lovren headed over late on, but a lively home side could find no breakthrough.

Unbeaten Man Utd move top of the table ahead of Manchester City’s trip to Crystal Palace. Liverpool’s third draw in four matches leaves them sixth.
