Manchester United 2-2 Liverpool: Premier League – live reaction

Below is a summary of the full article. Click here for the full version or go back to LFC


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

He gets up eventually, and then Rashford is offside from a free-kick.

59 min: Dalot’s buccaneering run sets up a quick United attack, and Rashford’s ball into the box is asking to be hit

Kelleher claims with some relief.

57 min: United can’t get the ball clear

Salah is crowded out as United defenders swarm

On the sidelines, Klopp is getting antsy.

56 min: Liverpool trying to step it back up, and Wan-Bissaka has to head behind
