A resolute Manchester United gained a point away to Liverpool on Saturday in the biggest fixture of the English Premier League weekend.
A much-hyped encounter, it wasn’t exactly the most thrilling ninety minutes for neutrals but Jose Mourinho and his side will likely be happy with a solid point from a match they could’ve lost on another day.
A world class save from David De Gea to deny Joel Matip was the highlight, his outstretched boot denying a certain goal for the home side.
It was a day of frustration for some Man United players with Romelu Lukaku looking particularly out of sorts after his superb start to the season. All eyes were on him to put in a big performance but he managed just one shot on target throughout the entire game, which was saved by Simon Mignolet.
Manchester United fans weren’t pleased with the performance of their summer signing, believing him to be missing from the match for long periods and ineffective when he did get the ball.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Lukaku gets his goals, but as far as being a good finisher, he's still far off. He's young at 24, but he has to work on his finishing #mufc

With Liverpool’s shaky defence #mufc should’ve gone for the win. But they’re not good enuf. Gotta beat top teams. Lukaku missing in big game

#MUFC Awful attacking display, Lukaku anonymous, but a great point at Anfield and De Gea shows again why he is the best GK in the world

Cannot defend Lukaku today. Not coz of the chance he missed but the amount of efforts he put in. Need to be doing much more than this. #mufc
