Liverpool go top after United stalemate; Arsenal win

Adjust Comment Print

United had three players leave the field with hamstring injuries before the interval and Rashford had to play on until the end, showing some signs of discomfort.

"If Manchester United had scored it would have been incredible".

United midfielder Paul Pogba - completely revitalized under Solskjaer - found himself behind the Liverpool defense on a free-kick but was ruled offside in the 51st minute and United had a goal disallowed - an own goal - on another offside call in the 75th minute.

"It is a point gained because we have one more than before but it doesn't feel like that". It is the same for United going to Anfield.

The interim manager made it clear that Liverpool fans are used to having their hopes dashed: "I have loads of Liverpool fans back home and every year is going to be their year".

Liverpool are at home against Watford in their next game, but may be without Roberto Firmino who limped off in the first half against United.

Lingard chased through on goal but, with only Alisson to beat, was denied by a courageous save from the Brazilian keeper, stumbling and re-injuring himself in the process.

Klopp believes Solskjaer has got United back on track
If somebody is not happy with that, I'm OK but you have to be ready for the next game and the next game is coming on Wednesday. The first half ended goalless with Premier League title challengers Liverpool unable to turn their possession into a lead.

Who is your money on between Liverpool and United?

With 66 minutes gone, Georginio Wijnaldum shot from the edge of the area but thumped miles over, and the same player's header soon afterwards deflected to safety off Scott McTominay. We had to keep him on, we'd already run out of subs!

James Milner admitted they weren't good enough today but did highlight one pleasing thing.

Arsenal took the lead in the sixth minute in freakish circumstances, Lacazette neatly back-heeling in a pass from Mkhitaryan while the rest of the team were still appealing for a penalty after Lucas Torreira took a tumble in the box. It is probably the toughest league to win and when you look at it there are only five or six teams that have won the Premier League.

Despite his words of praise for Solskjaer, Neville suggested United could have been beaten by Liverpool if Jurgen Klopp's side were a little more ambitious at Old Trafford, as he offered up this verdict on the tense stalemate that allowed Liverpool to reclaim top spot in the Premier League by a solitary point.

After such a messy first half, neither side were able to truly get into their stride in a disappointing game.
