Man U hold Liverpool to scoreless stalemate in PL clash

ANI  |  Liverpool [England] 

Manchester United displayed a defensive and disciplined performance as they held Liverpool to a frustrating goalless draw in their League clash at Anfield here on Tuesday.

Both teams got plenty of chances to break the deadlock in the second-half of the match, but none of the team was able to put the ball behind the goal post.

United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a great chance to open his side's account in the first half when he contrived to head Paul Pogba's curling cross away from the Liverpool goal, goal.com reported.

Liverpool continued to do attacking work in the second-half, but United goalkeeper David de Gea displayed a superb performance by making two fine saves of Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho's 25-yard effort.

With just 13 minutes left to the final whistle, substitute Wayne Rooney entered the fray but the out-of-favour United captain could not repeat his winner in the same fixture last season.

With the result, Liverpool's four-game winning streak has come to an end and they also missed a chance to move level on points at the top of the League table.

Meanwhile, United are currently languishing down on seventh spot with 14 points.

Liverpool will now lock horns with West Brom while Jose Mourinho's side Chelsea.
