Manchester United fans delighted with fighting spirit vs Liverpool

Manchester United fans were thoroughly proud of their players’ fighting spirt vs Liverpool in a match dominated by injuries.

Juan Mata, Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford all picked up early knocks that almost saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men forced into playing with ten men.

The two Spaniards were substituted right away for Lingard and Andreas Pereira but unfortunately the former had to be pulled back off after picking up a knock himself.

Alexis Sanchez came on but the disruptions didn’t help United’s cause with the match eventually ending in a goalless draw.

Rashford essentially spent three quarters of the match limping as he battled on to stay on the pitch so his side weren’t a man down.

Despite Liverpool dominating possession, the best chances arguably fell to United who may have stolen all three points had they had better luck.

Jesse is perhaps the most guilty having been sent through by Romelu Lukaku one on one with the goalkeeper but couldn’t capitalise.

Nonetheless, the Red Devils will definitely be thinking it’s a point gained rather than two lost given the context of the match.

Hopefully the injuries suffered aren’t as serious as they looked and Solskjaer can continue the team’s efforts of securing a top four spot.
