Premier League Highlight
Jose Mourinho’s tactics at Anfield will again come under scrutiny after a 0-0 draw against a Liverpool side now with one win in eight. Manchester United proved a stifling presence at Anfield once again as they closed out a 0-0 draw with Liverpool.
Jose Mourinho’s side were criticised for a lack of ambition in last season’s stalemate and any change in approach brought about by their lofty position in the Premier League was negligible on this occasion. United, who edged one point ahead Manchester City at the summit ahead of their neighbours hosting Stoke City, had David de Gea to thank for a magnificent first-half save to deny Joel Matip.
Romelu Lukaku was unable to make it eight goals in as many top-flight games for Mourinho’s men when he botched a one-on-one opportunity on the stroke of half-time. If it was mildly perplexing to see a side in such previously prolific goalscoring form isolate Lukaku for long periods before the break, the second period descended into a Liverpool attack versus United defence. Jurgen Klopp’s men were unable to find a way through and have now won just one out of eight in all competitions – Mourinho must hope he does not regret showing so much respect to opponents in such form come May.
