Match report: Man Utd 1-1 Liverpool

Manchester United ended Liverpool’s bid to tie the Premier League record for consecutive draws with a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The visitors relied on an equaliser five minutes from time just to keep their unbeaten start to the 2019-20 season going.

Marcus Rashford had opened the scoring for us 10 minutes before half-time in a tactical masterclass from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The boss named a back five, which included Marcos Rojo being drafted into the starting lineup only minutes before kickoff as Axel Tuanzebe was injured in the warm-up.

David de Gea was not tested in the opening 85 minutes before Lallana scored a tap in after our defence fell asleep for the one and only time all game.

There was an excellent performance from Andreas Pereira in the number 10 role on Sunday as the Brazilian displayed both creativity and his workrate off the ball in what was his best performance to date in a Manchester United shirt.

The game also saw Aaron Wan-Bissaka make his return to the starting lineup following a recent illness, whilst Anthony Martial came on late as a substitute following his lengthy layoff.

Whilst the point is only good enough to move us up into 13th there are a lot of positives to take from the game and hopefully turn into three points at Norwich City next weekend.

Our 0-0 draw versus Liverpool back in March essentially cost them their first Premier League title, whilst today’s result sees their lead at the top reduced to six points this weekend.
