Liverpool kept a clean sheet and came away with an important point against rivals Manchester United despite a frustrating performance.

Georginio Wijnaldum was missing from the squad as expected, after picking up an injury whilst on international duty.

Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge came into the side as Adam Lallana also missed out on a starting place but remained on the bench, after struggling to recover from a hamstring injury picked up in the 2-1 victory over Swansea.

Liverpool never really got going and a poor first-half display was followed by a relatively frustrating second-half.

Divock Origi, Alberto Moreno and Lallana all came on as substitutes and the England midfielder certainly made a difference but neither side offered many opportunities to break the deadlock.

In the end, apart from a few chances which were saved effectively by David De Gea, there wasn’t too much for Liverpool fans to get excited about.

Here’s all the best reaction from Liverpool fans throughout the game on Twitter…

After much speculation, Sturridge’s inclusion in the starting XI was confirmed and there was optimism surrounding the game.

Half-time arrived as a bit of a blessing after a poor first-half display for the Reds and fans were calling for several changes to be made.

Fans got what they were hoping for when Lallana came on for Sturridge after 59 minutes.

Jurgen Klopp made some bold substitutions with 5 minutes plus stoppage time left to play when he brought on Divock Origi and Alberto Moreno for James Milner and Roberto Firmino.

In the end, it was an unflattering 0-0 result and fans were left feeling frustrated as Liverpool never seemed to get going… And Mourinho was up to his usual boring antics.
