Adam Lallana saves Liverpool against Manchester United
Liverpool’s winning streak came to an end at Old Trafford but it could have been a lot worse than that.
Marcus Rashford scored a contentious goal after Divock Origi was fouled in the build-up to the goal. The Belgian was tackled from behind and after a long VAR check, the decision stood and United were in the lead.
The Red Devils were slightly better than us and with no Mohamed Salah in the squad, we looked a little bereft of ideas.
Jurgen Klopp was fuming and remonstrated with the fourth official over the goal. VAR came into play again just before half-time when Sadio Mane’s effort was ruled out for a hand-ball.
Fans cannot stop praising Lallana
Adam Lallana has been one of our most disappointing players in recent years. It isn’t because of a lack of effort, but simply because he hasn’t been fit to start regularly.
The Englishman came on in the second half and was playing on the right flank a 4-4-2. In the end, he got the telling touch.
Andy Robertson crossed the ball from the left and it missed everyone. However, Lallana was on the spot to slot past David de Gea. The Reds dominated the final minutes as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came close to giving Liverpool the lead.
We didn’t win in the end, but getting the point feels good after struggling to break down the United backline.
Lallana certainly saved our skin as Manchester City are now six points behind us, and many Liverpool fans were ecstatic that the Englishman scored.
