On Sunday evening, Manchester United became the first side to stop Liverpool scoring at Anfield in a Premier League match since Manchester City managed to do so in October 2018.

The goalless draw was Liverpool’s 43rd home game in the division since then, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knew it was not something to trumpet about.

“I’ve got to be honest and say I’m a bit disappointed at the moment,” the United manager admitted.

“With the injuries they’ve had, you think you might be able to come here and get a win. We didn’t.”

Liverpool have not been themselves since mid-December, with their centre-back crisis impacting their psychology and offensive powers rather than their defensive numbers.

And actually, if you scroll back further, the reigning champions have won just six of the last 15 fixtures in all competitions – one of them courtesy of a second-half blitz against Aston Villa’s kids.
