Analysis Adam Patti from Sky Sports …
Liverpool dominated the ball and took more shots than Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday, but there will still be a comfort element after they survived this match against their two great rivals, scoring 68 matches at home without a defeat.
It’s not just that Alison had to tackle two excellent times or the fact that Fabinho had to defend expertly to disqualify Bruno Fernandez and Marcus Rashford in the final minutes.
This goalless draw does not knock United out of the lead but it keeps the difference between the two teams down to just three points with 20 matches remaining. It pushes the question down the line. Liverpool might reasonably expect United to dissolve. They can hope Manchester City will not take this opportunity. The title defense is nearing completion.
This may be sufficient given the circumstances. Two midfielders are in the center of defense. Xherdan Shaqiri is making his first Premier League start in over a year. Graeme Souness said, “It’s a team that is settled against a team that mixes things up and that’s not what you want for a match like this.” Sky Sports Advance.
All this would make sense if it was Liverpool’s defense that broke through under the pressure of a confrontation with perhaps the best counterattacking team in the league.
Instead, it was the attackers who failed to deliver. This is a concern.
