Where unexpected war of attrition leaves Man U and Liverpool

Where unexpected war of attrition leaves Man U and Liverpool

Instead, a freaky string of injuries during the first half ensured that the free-flowing goal-fest everyone hoped for, actually turned into a gritty, hard-fought draw best appreciated by defensive purists.

Klopp just has to get the front three playing like their old selves and Liverpool should have no problem beating teams like Watford and Everton. He replaced the ineffective Mo Salah with Divock Origi and Jordan Henderson made way for Xherdan Shaqiri. "They missed a really good opportunity to go at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United and may regret not trying to win it".

"Maybe we've been a bit guilty of that, even more so in midweek". Virgil van Dijk anchored yet another disciplined performance by the Liverpool backline, while United's back four, and especially left-back Luke Shaw, put in perhaps their best performance of the season.

"You can't play well in every game but it's about grinding out results".

Ice mounds 25 to 30 feet high also came ashore farther south, piling up on several lakefront properties in suburban Hamburg. So much ice flowed into the Niagara River that many thought the ice boom had broken.


Minus Mata, Ander Herrera and Jesse Lingard, however, Solskjaer's were able to dig deep and pick up an impressive point - something the 30-year-old admitted on his blog he is immensely proud of, while providing fans with a vague update on his own injury. Credit to them who came in and did their job.

Solskjaer's impact on a United side that was labouring under Jose Mourinho until last December has surpassed expectations, with the team unbeaten in 10 Premier League games and have also secured a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

"We kept going right until the end". After two awkward minutes of yelling and gesturing at one another, the keeper won out and was allowed to stay on the field, much to his manager's disgust.

As honest and forthright as his comments were meant to be, they rankled partly because Owen's own career was derailed by injuries and Rashford is exactly the kind of player he used to be for they eventually took their toll - an utterly electric forward capable of tearing Premier League defences apart with their pace and dribbling.
