Goalkeepers dominated the huge English Premier League (EPL) clash between Liverpool and Manchester United as both teams played out a goalless draw Inn what was a highly tactical battle.
Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea made the save of the season to deny Cameroon defender Joel Matip in the first half before leading league marksman Romelu Lukaku wasted United’s best chance as he was thwarted by a decent save from Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
After a goalless first half, chances were thereafter at a premium in the second half as both sides struggled to create openings though the hosts clearly had more of the runnings than their fiercest rivals.
The win takes United to the top ahead of city rivals and former leaders Manchester City, who play Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium. Jose Mourinho’ s men now have 20 points from 8 games while Liverpool also move from 7th to 6th spot with 13 points from the same number of games.
