Liverpool vs Man Utd: Dominant Liverpool unable to break through in scoreless draw

Manchester United avoids thrashing at Anfield, first team to avoid defeat this season, controversy with Diogo Dalot's red card.

Manchester United managed to avoid a thrashing by Liverpool at Anfield, becoming the first team to do so this season. Despite Liverpool's record of 11 wins from 11 games in league and cups, it seemed as though United's problems and poor form would lead to another victory for Liverpool. However, United capitalized on some uncharacteristically poor attacking play from Jurgen Klopp's side and managed to survive the 34 shots produced by their hosts to secure a draw.

The game, which was a clash between two bitter rivals, was not without controversy, as United defender Diogo Dalot was sent off in the 93rd minute. This came after a protracted dissent at referee Michael Oliver over an incorrectly-awarded throw-in. The match started as many expected, with Liverpool dominating the opening exchanges and United holding firm in defense despite their struggles.

The largest Anfield crowd in over 60 years was present, thanks to the opening of an extension to the Anfield Road stand for the first time. Despite United's depleted team due to injury and suspensions, they managed to hold on gamely. It wasn't until the 55th minute that United looked remotely interested in scoring, and there was a lack of quality in both teams' attacking play.

In the end, Liverpool missed the chance to return to the top of the table, and the match ended in a draw. The game was characterized by a lack of quality in attacking play from both sides, with United hardly posing a threat in the first half. Despite the lack of excitement, United managed to hold off Liverpool, who were unable to capitalize on their numerous chances.

The final score was 0-0, and the match was a testament to United's defensive resilience, despite their struggles. Liverpool's record of 11 wins from 11 games was broken by United, who managed to avoid defeat at Anfield this season.
