Mo Salah salvages vital point for title-chasing Liverpool at Manchester UnitedRead more

Virgil van Dijk had his say, too:

“We should have been 2-0 up at least.

But we were in a rush, losing too many balls in challenges in midfield.

“One hundred per cent (it was self-inflicted). It feels like the cup game again. In the first half we were much better than we played back then, we created chances and we limited them but obviously we know that one moment can change the game if you don’t finish it off and that’s the disappointing part.

“We should have won it today but the reality is that we didn’t and we have to make it up in the other games that come.”

Jurgen Klopp spoke to Sky, too: “We should have won the game, that is clear. We should have had other goals in the first half already. No shots in the first half and 1-0 is the lowest we could expect. Really well done from Bruno. Then the stadium is coming and we needed a few minutes to settle again and they scored another screamer. We had big chances before and after they scored. As far as I’m concerned, we have a point more than we did before. They put an extra shift in, that’s how it is. We will face that again against Everton. Fully deserved equaliser.

“I’m not angry at all with the boys but in the game I’m not just going to let things happen. We dropped too deep. There were plenty of situations where we could have defended the ball. You need to be proactive.

“We play now at home against Atalanta, difficult game but at home and then another. We don’t have many home games left. The team who wins the league in the end should deserve it. We are in the race and I’m absolutely fine with it.”

Kobbie Mainoo spoke to Sky Sports: “Disappointed to be honest. I think we performed really well in the second half. The lads made minor mistakes and if we iron them out then we win the game.

“It’s an unbelievable feeling to score my first Old Trafford goal and to do it in this fixture was even more special. We didn’t get the three points and that’s the main thing. Mistakes happen in games and they can be detremental. It’s tough and it takes it out of you.

“Again, details that we’ve missed. I have my own jobs in the team but the flick on got to him in space.”

Jamie Carragher, who sounded pained in the Sky commentary box as the second half progressed, had this to say at full-time:


Liverpool have only got themselves to blame. Same as in the FA Cup tie, not clinical enough when it mattered. Should have put Manchester United to bed, so this is definitely two points dropped.


Here’s Jamie Jackson’s report from Old Trafford.

Salah’s spot-kick salvages Liverpool a title-vital point at Manchester UnitedRead more

David Wall, another United fan: “Sure, United aren’t very good, but a season where you knock Liverpool out of the cup and do as much as anyone to scupper their title challenge has a certain satisfaction to it nonetheless.”

Andy Flintoff gets in touch: “This is what’s so frustrating about United - they can fight like terriers in matches against the top teams, but meekly go through the motions against other teams. The question we need to ask is, can Ten Hag really motivate this squad?”

Seven games to go, and it’s tight, so tight.


Jurgen Klopp is out and shaking hands, a broad smile for Casemiro but his players look gutted, disappointed. What a game that was. Liverpool let that slip, they know that. But they had to come back into it despite being the far superior team. United scored two brilliant goals and defended with determination if nothing like organisation. Arsenal stay top, and do so after a game that often defied belief and sense.

90+8 min: It’s taken, and drops to Elliott, but he can’t beat Onana. That’s it, 2-2, what a strange trip it’s been.

90+7 min: Hojlund, sets up Antony, and the shot is straight at Kelleher. Diaz, as United lose the ball after that, keeps the ball in play, and Casemiro comes in for another yellow card to stop him. Liverpool have a free-kick to win it.

90+5 min: Bruno Fernandes has chance to release Hojlund, but doesn’t beat the first man. Jones is fouled by Amrabat, and then Gomez blams the free-kick, aimed for Diaz, out of play. Nerves aplenty.

90+4 min: It’s all Liverpool again. And they attempt the patient move from which they got their penalty. The ball is lofted, Robertson hauls Antony down and Diaz smashes over. Had that gone in, VAR would surely have ruled it out. Though who knows?

90+3 min: United take an age over a throw-in, lose the ball and Mount has to commit a yellow-card offence.

90+1 min: Jurgen Klopp paces and paces, wearing the pressure all so obviously. No wonder he wants a rest; his team have put him through it.

90 min: Bruno, again, is the man making the last-ditch tackle after Casemiro’s kick clear travelled no distance at all. Seven minutes added on.

89 min: Salah clean away? No, Bruno Fernandes makes a last-man tackle. Where were his defenders?

88 min: It’s Liverpool’s fans who can be heard. The Old Trafford air is filled with rancour, and some bile, too. United can’t get any grip of midfield but then Salah loses the ball. Jones commits a tactical foul on Amrabat, and gets a yellow.

86 min: Liverpool continue their hunt for a goal. The ball is aimed at Diaz, who slips off down the gap between the pitch and the stands. Dalot, too. Both get up, gingerly.

85 min: Wan-Bissaka’s lack of discipline was very United 2024, though Liverpool had been pushing and pushing. Mason Mount comes on, Mainoo departing the scene. Mount’s introduction at Stamford Bridge was fateful.;

The main man takes his time to settle the ball, but send Onana the wrong way and rushes to the net to collect it. Only half the job is done.

Elliott has been impressive since coming on, and tempts Wan-Bissaka to go to ground. It’s a stonewall penalty, no complaints there. VAR takes little time.

81 min: All Liverpool now, all United defending. The next ten minutes or so drip with destiny.

80 min: On comes Ambrabat for Garnacho, to shore up midfield. Good luck with that on Amrabat’s showings so far for United. Onana is booked for yet more dallying with the ball.

79 min: More Liverpool chances. Diaz turns and shoots, Onana parries and Salah lifts the rebound over.

78 min: United back in heavy numbers but how orderly are they? Liverpool pushing and probing. Kambwala heads away; he’s had a fine game, calm in the eye of the storm.

77 min: We approach the part of the game where Liverpool score and United concede. Gomez’s shot is deflected into the path of Onana, who saves with some relief and then dallies, to the annoyance of the away contingent.

75 min: Jeers from the home fans as Liverpool overplay, and Elliot lets the ball run out.

73 min: Liverpool look just as ragged and Klopp is losing his cool as Kambwala slides in to tackle Gomez. Klopp wanted a red rather than the yellow the teenager received.

72 min: Kelleher clears the ball with his fist, and eventually Liverpool can go again. They’ve gone 4-4-2, with Gakpo to flick on for Salah.

71 min: There’s a stramash in the centre of the field as Hojlund is robbed. And fouled. United fancy this, Garnacho forcing a corner off Gomez.

69 min: It turns out that Nunez neither exploded nor scored. It was left to Klopp to explode. Understandable, this game would drive anyone to insanity.

68 min: Jurgen Klopp is absolutely raging by the way. Van Dijk and Quansah are at each other. Two more Liverpool subs: Elliot and Gakpo on, off come Endo and Nunez.

All his own work. Mainoo could have passed the ball out to the right, but instead plays it to Garnacho, and collects the ball, spins and smashes it with his right, and in.

66 min: Subs imminent from both teams? Rashford is down, and that looks to be it for him. Antony will come on for him. Liverpool will bring on Curtis Jones for Szoboszlai, and Joe Gomez replaces Conor Bradley, who was on a booking. Szoboszlai’s passing had been increasingly sloppy.

63 min: Garnacho, quiet so far, sets up Bruno for a diving header. And soon enough Liverpool go down the other end, and United somehow smuggle the ball away. This resembles a game of sevens rugby, the ball speeding from end to end.

62 min: Nunez is haring around chaotically, and could either a) explode or b) score.

C) Both are possibilities, too.

60 min: Kobbie Mainoo is down, having made one of the many blocks being asked of United players

Kelleher claims with some relief.

57 min: United can’t get the ball clear
