This Sunday at Old Trafford, Manchester United hosted Premier League leaders Liverpool and were very close to beat the unbeaten side of Jurgen Klopp so far in the competition. The Red Devils opened the scoring through Marcus Rashford, but could not hold the Reds and ended up conceding a late goal scored by substitute Adam Lallana, as the match ended up 1-1.

Well aware of the terrible start in the Premier League of their deadliest rivals, Liverpool supporters traveled to their neighbor city in Manchester bringing not only hope but multiple numbers 6. The Scousers stepped up at Old Trafford displaying the number 6 in allusion to the number of times the Reds won the UEFA Champions League. There were also Champions League trophies and a very unusual song saying that Man United would go down to the English Championship, given the bad moment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

On the pitch, however, we saw a surprisingly confident Man United, and a Liverpool with some difficulties, mainly when it came to creating chances. And surely, the VAR played a major role once again in the Premier League.

The hosts opened the scoring on 36 minutes, as Rashford received a cross from Daniel James and tapped into the nets. However, there was a clear foul on Divock Origi at the start of the play, as the referee ended up ignoring the VAR check and stayed with his decision.

A few minutes later, Sadio Mane controlled a long-ball, got inside the area, rounded Maguire and slotted home past David De Gea. When the Senegalese striker controlled it, he used his hand, as the VAR correctly ruled out Liverpool’s goal.

After the break, Klopp went for a lot of changes in the middle and introduced Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita, and Adam Lallana. And they played a major role in the equalizing from the European Champions. On 85 minutes, Andy Robertson’s cross found an unmarked Lallana, who scored from close-range, making the traveling Reds erupt in joy. 1-1.

There was still time for Liverpool to create more chances, and they got close through Chamberlain, who had two long-range shots that went hazardously close from De Gea’s post.

Despite the VAR being ignored by the referee, the 1-1 was fair, but maybe Liverpool could have given that extra push to get out with the three points from an always hard place to go, which is the Theatre of Dreams. As for United, they’d better listen to Liverpool supporters and start playing Football, otherwise, chances are that they will really end up being relegated.

Following the 1-1 draw, both teams have important midweek appointments. For the UEFA Champions League, Liverpool, second-placed in Group E, visit Genk in Belgium on Wednesday. A day later, Manchester United will go to Serbia to face Partizan for the third round of the UEFA Europa League.
