Manchester United denied win against Liverpool

Manchester United were forced to settle for a draw when their chance to win the fixture was blocked by Liverpool’s Allison.

The highly awaited fixture of the weekend failed to deliver the number of goals expected from it was definitely something to smile for Ole Gunner Solskjaer than Jurgen Klopp.

Brino Fernandes came close to give the visitors the lead when his free kick from 20-yards went inches away from the post.

The host managed the better part of the possession in the first half as Thiago Silva challenged David De Gea who blocked his goal scoring attempt.

Allison bounced again in action denying Fernandes the second opportunity of the match before saving a crucial last minute effort by Paul Pogba.

The draw leaves Manchester United at the top of the table with 37 points, 3 points above Liverpool who were surely unhappy with a draw from the clash.

Manchester City are second with 35 points and level on points with Leicester with the four clubs battling for the League tittle of the season.

The Reds coach Jurgen Klopp could be heard from the pitch shouting in frustration demanding his players to pull up a win and score goals.

Their dry spell is on the roll as Salah and Mane provided little or no chances for Brazilian Firmino to covert for the host.
