Man United vs Liverpool final score, result, highlights

Man United vs Liverpool final score, result, highlights

Manchester United drew 2-2 with Liverpool at Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester, dealing a blow to Jurgen Klopp’s chances of a second Premier League title.

Liverpool’s lead was sealed by an acrobatic goal from Luis Diaz and a string of missed opportunities in the first half, while their hosts failed to create a single shot before the break. However, Manchester United were able to return to the game and take a 2-1 lead.

They had their captain, Bruno Fernandes, and 18-year-old sensation Kobby Maina to thank for that. Jarell Kwansah lazily attempted to play a quarter pass to Virgil Van Dijk, but the ball fell short of his captain. Fernandes intercepted it and sent his shot into the far corner of Liverpool defender Caoimhin Kelleher’s goal.

Mainu then channeled his inner Federico Macheda as he took the ball from Curtis Jones and placed it perfectly into the far right corner of the goal. His first goal at Old Trafford made him the youngest Manchester United player to score against Liverpool in the English Premier League.

Manchester United then took their third penalty in two matches, another unwise foul from a defender who looked tired. This time it was Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who brought down Harvey Elliott in the penalty area.

Manchester United vs Liverpool: Final Score

Mohamed Salah’s penalty conversion secured a 2-2 draw for Liverpool against Manchester United. With this goal, Salah now holds the record for the most Premier League goals against United (11) and at Old Trafford (six) than any other opposition player in the competition’s history. Additionally, he became the first visiting player to score in four consecutive league games at Old Trafford.

Title Race Implications

Despite the draw, Manchester United played spoilsport to Liverpool’s FA Cup ambitions and disrupted their pursuit of the Premier League title. As a result, Arsenal finished the weekend a point ahead of both Liverpool and Manchester City, who are placed second and third respectively. Each of the three contenders now has seven games remaining in the season.

Liverpool’s Title Chances

While Liverpool currently lead Manchester City by a point, their remaining fixtures include challenging matches against Everton, Tottenham, and Aston Villa. In contrast, Manchester City’s run-in appears more favorable, with only one top-six side left to play.

Jurgen Klopp’s View

When asked about Arsenal overtaking Liverpool at the top of the table on goal difference, Klopp emphasized the importance of consistency over the course of the season. He expressed contentment with his team’s current position but acknowledged the desire to maintain or improve their standing by the end of the season.

Assessment of Manchester United’s Performance

Despite facing numerous injuries throughout the season, Manchester United fielded a makeshift lineup against Liverpool. The inclusion of youngsters like Willy Kambwala and Harry Amass, alongside established players, highlighted the squad’s depth and resilience. Although Gary Neville questioned the extent of United’s injury crisis, the team’s performance against Liverpool showcased their ability to compete at the highest level, even in adverse circumstances.
