When you talk about rivalry, look no further than a game between Manchester United and Liverpool. That’s one football rivalry the world has become accustomed to and for me the 2 men that put me on the Manchester United train told me that your number one enemy is Liverpool as a Manchester United fan. Shoutout to Big Doz and Big Yomz.
United hosted Liverpool at their Theatre of Dreams home ground in what could be a potential title decider. Not that Man Utd were in the running for the title but a victory for Liverpool would put them in good stead to win the league since 1992. If you asked me, I don’t want Liverpool winning the English Premier League (EPL), not now, not ever. Before today, in 9 games at the Theatre of Dreams United boasted of 7 wins losing one and drawing one but Liverpool own the current bragging rights with a 3:1 win in the reverse fixture, the game that got Jose Mourinho sacked as United’s Manager.
The first half of this tie was highlighted with injuries. United used all 3 substitutes before half time with Andreas Pereira replacing Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard coming on for Juan Mata. Jesse Lingard was however pulled out due to a hamstring injury after missing the best chance of the half in the 43rd minute and was replaced by Alexis Sanchez. Liverpool also had an injury concern of their own with Daniel Sturridge stepping in for Roberto Firmino in the 31st minute.
Half time scores 0:0.
The second half was mostly about Liverpool and at this point I would have taken a draw over anything else. Liverpool dominated the game from the blast of the second half whistle till the end of the game with 64% of the possession. Manchester United had a goal scored in the 75th minute by Alexis Sanchez ruled out rightly for offside. The half wore on without producing any goal.
Game over, United 0: Liverpool 0.
Manchester United drop to 5th position on the log after the game with Arsenal moving to 4th place with a point ahead.
Thanks for your time guys. Have a great week ahead. BLESS
