“Excellent performance, mediocre result” – Fans react to Liverpool 0-0 Man United

Liverpool returned from international break to record an encouraging 0-0 draw with Man United at Anfield, held by Jose Mourinho’s negative tactics.

Liverpool 0-0 Man United

Premier League, Anfield
October 14, 2017

Liverpool were without Sadio Mane, who picked up a hamstring injury while on international duty with Senegal.

Manchester United were also missing key man Paul Pogba but both teams still named strong starting lineups.

Philippe Coutinho started on the left-hand side of the front three, while Jordan Henderson, Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum all lined up in midfield.

Mohamed Salah, Joel Matip and Romelu Lukaku all had chances to score in the first half but neither team dominated the game.

It was a quiet start to the second half though Can had a great chance to put Liverpool ahead following a cross from Joe Gomez, but his header went flying over the bar.

Firmino saw lots of the ball but was unable to create any goalscoring opportunities before Jose Mourinho introduced Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard to the frame.

Daniel Sturridge and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replaced Coutinho and Salah as Liverpool searched for a winner but neither team were able to break the deadlock.

Here are all the reactions from Liverpool supporters throughout the match.
