Manchester United fans feeling bittersweet after Liverpool draw

Manchester United fans have been left with mixed feelings after their 1-1 draw with Liverpool despite the overall positive performance.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men led before the half-time break thanks to a brilliant counter-attack scored by Marcus Rashford and assisted by Daniel James.

United attempted to take the sting out of the fixture after the break and use their game management ability to squeeze out a win.

Unfortunately, despite doing it well for a large period of the game, Solskjaer’s side fell short at the final hurdle with their fierce rivals netting an equaliser.

There was an incredible need for the Red Devils to gain all three points due to their position in the league but they will have to make do with sharing the spoils.

Solskjaer used a 3-5-2 formation of sorts to get the best out of his players as he used Rashford and James’ pace to get in behind the spaces Liverpool’s full-backs would leave open.

It worked a treat and the truth is Manchester United could’ve gotten a second to kill the game off but they failed to convert.

Hopefully Solskjaer’s key players will start to return from injury now and they can help the club climb up the table.
