How best to summarise that game... uhm... 

Thank the good Lord it's over. 

Thank you for reading, Anirudh Menon signing out. 


18:50 (IST)14 OCT 2017

94' Matip rises high, but heads it over. 

18:49 (IST)14 OCT 2017

93' Moreno wins a corner.... this must surely be the last chance of the match!

18:49 (IST)14 OCT 2017

92'  A premier league debut for Victor Lindelof as he replaces Ashley Young. As if Mourinho needed to make his intentions any clearer

18:48 (IST)14 OCT 2017

91' OH LOVREN! The Croatian rises handsomely over Jones but can't get his head over the ball, meaning his header was always going  over

18:47 (IST)14 OCT 2017

90' Liverpool have a corner late, late, in and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will take it. There will be three minutes of added on time... the Ox's delivery is rubbish, but he'll get a second bite it...

18:46 (IST)14 OCT 2017

89' Ashley Young went into the book a while earlier for a wild lunge on Moreno and he invites more hatred from the home crowd by mucking about wasting time... 

18:44 (IST)14 OCT 2017

88' Rashford gets a chance to run at Gomez finally, but the young Liverpudlian does exceptionally well to keep the young Mancunian at bay. 

18:43 (IST)14 OCT 2017

87' Last change for Liverpool as Dominic Solanke replaces the excellent Roberto Firmino

18:43 (IST)14 OCT 2017

86' Henderson almost nicks the ball off Matic and Anfield roars in appreciation of their captain's hard running... there is, though, an undercurrent of frustration that they don't have anything to show for all their endevaour

18:41 (IST)14 OCT 2017

84' Liverpool, as they have all game, come roaring back as Can rips open United's defence with a searing run into the box, but his ball back into the middle is smothered well by De Gea

18:40 (IST)14 OCT 2017

83' Liverpool have a freekick in a promising area of the pitch, but the delivery is awful

18:39 (IST)14 OCT 2017

81' Darmian goes in high on Can - nobody gets hurt thankfully and there was absolutely no force behind it, but Klopp is bemused by Atkinson's decision not to give the foul to Liverpool

18:37 (IST)14 OCT 2017

79' This has been an incredibly frustrating afternoon out for Lukaku... and Liverpool are simply not letting United have the ball. Oxlade-Chamberlain attempts to pick out Sturridge, but it's well cut out by Jones

18:34 (IST)14 OCT 2017

78' Substitutions as Salah and Coutinho are taken off for Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sturridge

18:33 (IST)14 OCT 2017

77' Rashford and Gomez go shoulder-to-shoulder but Atkinson feels he's used excessive force, and that's another chance for Liverpool to press United back

18:32 (IST)14 OCT 2017

76' Salah, fed up with the patient build-up lets fly from thirty-five yards. That ends up closer to the corner flag than the goal. 

18:30 (IST)14 OCT 2017

74' The first yellow of the evening goes to Chris Smalling for a silly little push and tug on Coutinho

18:29 (IST)14 OCT 2017

72' Lingard hassles and harries Matip into giving away a throw-in but the home side recover possession soon enough only to give away a cheap foul in their own half

18:28 (IST)14 OCT 2017

71' OH MY LORD! WHAT A MOVE LIVERPOOL! Coutinho picks out Firmino in acres of space in the United box, who then picks out a lovely ball that just evades a flying Mo Salah's noggin'.  

18:26 (IST)14 OCT 2017

70' Manchester United have been dire.... if anyone looks like they'll score it's Liverpool. United's men don't even look like they want to try. 

18:25 (IST)14 OCT 2017

69' Wijnaldum arrives laaaaate on Herrera and Atkinson continues to keep his cards in the pocket. He's allowed the game to flow well, has Atkinson

18:25 (IST)14 OCT 2017

68' Wijnaldum does superbly to intercept a Matic pass and get Firmino away - but the Brazilian is shadowed well by Smalling and his cross can only find De Gea

18:23 (IST)14 OCT 2017

66' Liverpool pass the ball around United's box with remarkable calm, before Salah injects some urgency into proceedings - dancing past Herrera and toe-poking a powerful shot well wide of De Gea's goal

18:22 (IST)14 OCT 2017

65' Second change for United as Mourinho does his usual routine - Martial off, Rashford on

18:21 (IST)14 OCT 2017

64' Salah runs at Darmian and wins a corner. Coutinho wanders over to take it .. but the ball in is poor and Valencia clears with ease

18:20 (IST)14 OCT 2017

63' Substitution for United as Jesse Lingard comes on for the fairly invisible (and underserved) Henrikh Mkhitaryan

18:19 (IST)14 OCT 2017

61' The corner is rubbish, but Liverpool maintain possession and continue to strangle United's bix. Coutinho dances past three challenges before falling over the fourth, Atkinson doesn't even raise an eyebrow. Anfield rises to their feet as their team continue the pressure deep in United's half, but Henderson's reckless challenge sees them release their own pressure

18:17 (IST)14 OCT 2017

60' Mkhitaryan gets mobbed by Wijnaldum and Coutinho and Liverpool are off on the counter like a streak of lightning. The Dutchman releases Salah into the box, where Darmian puts in an excellent last ditch challenge to stop the Egyptian

18:16 (IST)14 OCT 2017

59' Matic finds Martial with a lovely crossfield ball... the Frenchman teases Moreno and lefts the ball lazily into the box but Matip heads clear. He tries again, but this time Lovren gets it away

18:14 (IST)14 OCT 2017

58' Henderson tries to play in Coutinho, but he'd telegraphed his intentions to Smalling and the United man sees the ball to De Gea's hands

18:13 (IST)14 OCT 2017

57' OH MY GOOD LORD! That would have been such a calamitous mistake. From the throw-in, Liverpool work the ball along onto the other wing and Salah picks out Can's superb run with a lovely dink. All alone five ards out, with naught but keeper to beat, Can belts it into the Kop 

18:12 (IST)14 OCT 2017

56' Smalling and Herrera suffer an atrocious communications background that ends with the Englishman smashing the ball into the Spaniards shins and out for a throw

18:12 (IST)14 OCT 2017

55' Coutinho has a pop from distance but he's closed down by Matic and Jones and the ball deflects off the latter and into the path of Wijnaldum, but under pressure from Smalling, the Dutchman can only find row Z in the Kop

18:11 (IST)14 OCT 2017

54' A foul throw by Matteo Darmian gifts possession back to Liverpool. How can  a professional footballer not know how to take a throw-in?

18:10 (IST)14 OCT 2017

53' OH FIRMINO! Coutinho is growing into this game and beginning to look deadly dangerous. He picks open the grey fort with a lovely dink into the box but Firmino's strayed offside... De Gea saved the Brazilian's shot anyway. 

18:09 (IST)14 OCT 2017

52' Liverpool are not giving United a moment of peace... everytime United nick the ball back and try to counter, they nick it right back and counter the counter

18:07 (IST)14 OCT 2017

50' Liverpool just keep coming back in droves - Firmino tries a shot, it's blocked by Smalling. Gomez tries a cross, it's thumped away by Jones. Coutinho tries a dribble, he's crowded out by Valencia. 

18:06 (IST)14 OCT 2017

49' Liverpool come haring back, Coutinho skipping past Herrera as if the latter were not there before playing in Firmino. The Liverpudlian striker smashes it toward the near post but it deflects off Vvelancia for a corner. 

18:05 (IST)14 OCT 2017

48' Coutinho turns Valencia in his own half and starts to get on his scooter but the Ecuadorian puts that to an end with blunt physicality. 

18:04 (IST)14 OCT 2017

47' OH JONES! CHANCE FOR LIVERPOOL! Jones plays the ball to Firmino who gratefully accepts it and releases Coutinho forward but the Brazilian's cut back to his compatriot finds the latter offside. 

18:03 (IST)14 OCT 2017

46' United start the second hafd like they did the first, releasing Young down the right-hand side but Moreno and Henderson do enough between them to force United back into their own half 

18:02 (IST)14 OCT 2017


17:49 (IST)14 OCT 2017



A see-saw match that oscillated from mind-numbingly boring to breathlessly exciting in the space of a few minutes, we have David De Gea's incredible reflexes and Romelu Lukaku's lax finishing to thank for this being goalless. 

Expect more of the same from both sides. Be back in a few, got to make myself some tea. 

17:46 (IST)14 OCT 2017

46' Nothing happens in that one minute. 

17:45 (IST)14 OCT 2017

45' There'll be a minute of added on time as Lukaku's right heel accidentally collides with a prone Lovren. 

17:45 (IST)14 OCT 2017

44' Mo Salah leads Liverpool's counter, shimmying past Darmian and cutting in - before laying it off to Coutinho, but an excellent Jones tackle puts an end to thatt

17:44 (IST)14 OCT 2017

43' OH LUKAKU! OH LUKAKU! Stunning football from United as Martial and Mkhitaryan exchange slick passes for the former to release Lukaku into the box... a shrug later, he's past Moreno and has smashed the ball at goal, but it's straight at Mignolet! WHAT A CHANCE!

17:42 (IST)14 OCT 2017

42' Coutinho dances around four, FOUR, United players.... before racing into the box and trying to pick out someone in the box; but Valencia closes him down well and that's that

17:41 (IST)14 OCT 2017

41' WOOF SALAH! Liverpool ping the ball around sharply and work the ball to Salah in the box. Fresh of leading Egypt to their first world cup in 28 years, Salah is full of confidence and he takes the snapshot on... there's plenty of power, but it's straight at De Gea
