Liverpool is still struggling to catch up with Manchester United who is currently topping the table as they were held to a 0-0 draw at Anfield on Sunday night, January 17.
Even with the high expectations before the match, fans were left disappointed as both sides lack finishing quality during the match.
Both teams used the following line up.
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Henderson, Fabinho, Robertson; Thiago, Wijnaldum (Milner 89′), Shaqiri (Jones 76′); Salah, Mane, Firmino (Origi 85′)
Subs: Kelleher, R.Williams, Phillips, N.Williams, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Minamino, Jones, Origi, Milner
Man United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Pogba, Fred, McTominay; Fernandes (Greenwood 89′), Rashford, Martial (Cavani 61′)
Subs: Henderson, Bailly, Telles, Tuanzebe, Matic, Van de Beek, Mata, Cavani, Greenwood.
Jurgen Klopp was deprived of Joel Matip in the buildup, with the Cameroonian not fit enough to feature, Xherdan Shaqiri, started while Jordan Henderson played as a left-sided centre-back.
The Reds were dominant throughout the majority of the first half but, most of their chances were denied by David de Gea.
It was clear at half-time that both Firmino and Andy Robertson would need to improve after the break, and in the second half, only Harry Maguire’s interception kept Firmino from scoring.
Edinson Cavani then came in for Martial
As the game progressed, it threatened to open up as an end-to-end battle.
Firmino and Mohamed Salah tooled but often saw themselves overrun while Shaquiri was substituted in the 76th minute by Curtis before Thiago drew a bright save from De Gea.
Both sides pushed for a winner late on, but unfortunately, the game ended in a draw.
