Manchester United played poorly and being 0-1 down it looked like Liverpool were gonna take the important three points.
But as long as you have Zlatan there is always hope and in the 84th minute he saved United by heading the ball in the back of the net and the game ended 1-1.
- Valencia put in a good cross, I just stayed there and tried to hit the goal, Zlatan says about his goal after the game.
LIVERPOOL BETTER IN THE FIRST - POGBA HANDBALL
Mourinho chose a very attacking team and most of us expected United to storm forward and take charge of the game. They didn't, and Liverpool played better in the first half. Pogba had a great chance to score but instead he cleared the ball with his hands in the penalty box and Liverpool got a penalty in the 27th minute. Milner put it in the back of the net, 0-1 to Liverpool which was the score at halftime.
WEAK PERFORMANCE BY UNITED
Manchester United played very poor today. The passing was sloppy, there was little movement, the defense acted nervously and they let Liverpool control the game. The midfield three, who has been excellent lately, were horrible and Zlatan did nothing up front. There were glimpses of attacks in the second half but not much worked.
Nothing pointed towards United at the end but then from nothing, boom! It was 1-1. Fellaini hit the post with a header, the ball went to Valencia who crossed it back to Zlatan in the box. Grande Ibra touched the ball perfectly with his head and the ball went in goal via the crossbar. Incredibly important goal from Zlatan, 1-1. United pushed for another goal but the game ended 1-1.
