Liverpool 0 Manchester United 0

  • PRE-MATCH: No surprises in Liverpool’s lineup. Now let’s see if these players can make something happen.
  • Liverpool are lively and look the most likely to score, but Liverpool fans know that means nothing unless it actually happens - especially against this defensive United team.
  • Gratuitous shot of Sadio looking handsome sitting in the crowd just to rub it in.
  • Your first frustrating missed opportunity comes about 34 minutes in when De Gea barely gets a foot out to save Matip’s effort from point blank range.
  • Martin Atkinson gonna Atkins. Do you think Lukaku took the time to think, "You know, if i still played for Everton, I might have got sent off just now"?
  • HALFTIME: It’s what we expected. United defending and ceding possession, Atkinson fucking up, Liverpool not finding a way through. Let’s hope that changes in the second half.
  • The second half starts well, and Firmino sees his shot barely blocked after a good build up. So we’re doomed.
  • What’s to say at this point? It’s all the same: Liverpool attack, Liverpool look great, Liverpool do something cool, Liverpool dont score.
  • See previous point. And Coutinho, Salah, and Firmino all get subbed off - thanks, international break!
  • FINAL: And so it is as it ever was.
