Liverpool were held to a goalless draw at Old Trafford after an absolutely abject attacking display saw them fail to break down a depleted Manchester United side. The Reds started as the better side away from home, with an indirect free-kick inside a couple of minutes after De Gea was forced to handle a back-pass under pressure from Bobby Firmino, and Joël Matip was able to win his side a free-kick just outside the box with a rampaging run.
