MAN UTD CLING ON TO TOP SPOT AFTER GOALLESS DRAW WITH LIVERPOOL
User Rating: 0 (0 votes)

Manchester United kept their place at the top of the Premier League table with a goalless draw at defending champions Liverpool, as goalkeeper Alisson’s heroics denied them a victory at Anfield. 

Liverpool enjoyed much of the first-half possession and created several chances, including Andy Robertson’s half-volley over the crossbar and Roberto Firmino’s tame effort into the hands of David De Gea. 

Man Utd came close to breaking the deadlock with their only shot of the opening period, Bruno Fernandes’ free-kick flying inches wide of Alisson’s goal. 

After the break, Harry Maguire denied Roberto Firmino a tap-in before Mohamed Salah fired wide for the hosts.

Alisson then kept out Fernandes with a fine reaction save before superbly keeping out Paul Pogba’s close-range strike late on, either side of Thiago forcing De Gea to palm his long-range shot wide. 

A 12th match unbeaten takes Man Utd to 37 points, two more than second-placed Leicester City. 

Liverpool are three points behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team in third.
