Well, we all knew in the heart of our hearts, Liverpool were not going to win every game this season. A poor display coupled with some, shall we say, questionable officiating made for a frustrating game to watch. At the end of the day, however, the team rescued a point at Old Trafford.
While there weren’t a bevy of stand out performances, there were a few players that managed to make a difference. Georginio Wijnaldum flashed his tight control several times to get himself past defenders. Virgil van Dijk was a stalwart in the back yet again, snuffing out several attacks with great positioning, and put a couple crunching (legal) tackles in. Adam Lallana, well, he scored the tying goal. That’s about all we have to say about Sir Cruyff Turn. Alexander Olxade-Chamberlain showed dynamism and great vision in his 30+ minutes on the pitch, creating opportunities and almost scoring on a long-ranged daisy cutter.
