Manchester United at top after goalless draw with Liverpool

Match Updates

Manchester United remain at the top of the Premier League table after holding champions Liverpool to a goalless draw in what could still prove to be an important battle in this season’s championship chase.

The Red Devils had the best possibilities but a lot of energy was soaked up and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be delighted with a stalemate overall that sees his side edge two points away from Leicester City in the second position.

Liverpool is a point further off the top in third place but could sink to fourth if Manchester City beat Crystal Palace in the late kick-off.

The home side dominated the first period and would have been shocked that the scoring was not started by Roberto Firmino, who missed several half opportunities.

United barely threatened but went closest to breaking the deadlock when Bruno Fernandes angled free-kick inches deep. However, after the break, the trend continued, with the urge of Thiago Alcantara, who was outstanding on his belated Anfield debut, the attack of Liverpool again failed to ignite.

United almost nicked it late on, but Alisson made excellent saves to keep both Fernandes and Paul Pogba out.

Next up, when they host Burnley on Thursday when United visit Fulham on Wednesday, Liverpool will try to end a four-match winless streak.
