Match report: Liverpool 0 United 0

Antony’s inside pass found captain Scott McTominay on the edge of the box, and the midfielder then located Hojlund’s burst into the penalty area, but the Danish international could only find Alisson’s midriff with his right-footed effort.


As the game became more stretched, the tension increased, with both sides looking more likely to convert a chance as spaces appeared in both halves. McTominay shot over after another slick, confident United exchange, but the hosts also pushed United further back as the clock ticked down.


Gomez hit the side-netting and there was a nervy wait as VAR checked a potential handball against Luke Shaw, but the defender’s arm was in a natural position and had little time to get away from a ricocheting ball inside the box.


A couple of late Liverpool free-kicks multiplied the tension, but Cody Gakpo’s late header sailed harmlessly over, and more great defending from Varane and the others in the back four took United to the verge of a defiant point.


There was a flash of late drama when Dalot was sent off by referee Michael Oliver for two quickfire yellow cards, after an excellent challenge on Salah. The 10 men of the 20-times champions of England hung on comfortably, however, to earn a first draw of the 2023/24 season.
