PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEP! FULLTIME

LIVERPOOL 0-0 MANCHESTER UNITED

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

Thank the good Lord it's over. 

Thank you for reading, Anirudh Menon signing out. 

Toodle-ooo
...
94' Matip rises high, but heads it over. 
...
93' Moreno wins a corner.... this must surely be the last chance of the match!
...
92'  A premier league debut for Victor Lindelof as he replaces Ashley Young. As if Mourinho needed to make his intentions any clearer
...
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
...
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...
...
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... 
...
88' Rashford gets a chance to run at Gomez finally, but the young Liverpudlian does exceptionally well to keep the young Mancunian at bay. 
...
87' Last change for Liverpool as Dominic Solanke replaces the excellent Roberto Firmino
...
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
...
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
...
83' Liverpool have a freekick in a promising area of the pitch, but the delivery is awful
...
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
...
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
...
78' Substitutions as Salah and Coutinho are taken off for Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sturridge
...
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
...
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. 
...
74' The first yellow of the evening goes to Chris Smalling for a silly little push and tug on Coutinho
...
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
...
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'.  
...
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. 
...
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
...
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
...
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
...
65' Second change for United as Mourinho does his usual routine - Martial off, Rashford on
...
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
...
63' Substitution for United as Jesse Lingard comes on for the fairly invisible (and underserved) Henrikh Mkhitaryan
...
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
...
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
...
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
...
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
...
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 
...
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
...
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
...
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?
...
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. 
...
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
...
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. 
 
...
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. 
...
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. 
...
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. 
...
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 
...
PEEP! WE ARE OFF!
...
PEEP! HALFTIME!

LIVERPOOL 0-0 MANCHESTER UNITED

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. 
...
46' Nothing happens in that one minute. 
...
45' There'll be a minute of added on time as Lukaku's right heel accidentally collides with a prone Lovren. 
...
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
...
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!
...
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
...
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
