Liverpool v Manchester United in spooky stats
It made for a drab night in, really.
After all the hype surrounding Manchester United’s visit to Anfield, the game didn’t live up to the occasion. A lot has happened since United last visited Liverpool: Jose Mourinho, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have all arrived at United, Liverpool have played in and lost a European final, and James Milner has become a left-back. Liverpool have also become one of the form teams in the Premier League.
But after just 20 minutes last night, you probably knew this wasn’t going to be the shocking and enthralling game the hype promised it would be. Liverpool didn’t look like the attacking force they’ve been for most of this season,and by the time the second half rolled around, United didn’t look interested in forcing an attack at all.
For a dire 0-0, however, we did see some great saves, openings worked, a thrilling last-ditch tackle from Antonio Valencia and also some shocking stats!
Here are five of the best to come out of that Premier League epic that was Liverpool 0-0 Manchester United….
