Liverpool were fortunate to escape with a point after beingoutworked by Manchester United, according to the Super Sunday panel.
Jurgen Klopps side saw their lead at the top of the Premier League table trimmed after having to come from behind to draw at Old Trafford.
United hauled the team leaders by playing with a strength so often lacking this year, and Graeme Souness confessed his former side were lucky to come out with a purpose.
He told Sky Sports:I thought Liverpool got away with it today, but you must provide credit to Manchester United as during this first half, they worked his socks off. They did not allow Liverpool to get into the match in any way.
Their midfield is famous for their work-rate however they were outworked and bossed in there today. In general, I think if you analyze the stats with 68 percent 18, that the outcome is fair.
But United will require a whole great deal from it. They turned up now – they looked organised and a danger was carried by them.
Salah was outside and Manchester United did a good job on their full-backs, except for the objective. However, Liverpool have surely got off with one now for a whole lot of their players did not turn up.
Liverpool have a midfield which will outwork anybody, but they got outworked in the first half thats quite unusual.
When they get to the last third, they havent got any cuteness in the midfield but what they do have is workaholics, with Fabinho, both Henderson and Wijnaldum.
That is why they huffed and puffed for large intervals now as United sat deep. Its quite harsh to be too critical on the Liverpool midfield.
While United definitely needed the point more than Liverpool, a win against their opponents and Premier League leaders might have made a significant difference to their season.
In the short term, the extra two things could have increased Ole Gunnar Solskjaers facet to in the table instead of 13th, while a triumph that few people beyond Old Trafford seriously expected would have been the spark needed to kickstart their season and raise morale among the squad and fans.
Former United manager Jose Mourinho was amazed by how his successor set up to nullify the threat of Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane together with the successful utilization of somelow block.
I feel as though Liverpool have some constraints when they come up against teams with low blocks, he told Sky Sports. They have excellent effects but sometimes they win just in the limits.
Sometimes they smash opponents that perform the way they would like to play against, but clearly there is a little bit of frustration for Jurgen. At Old Trafford, which is a unique place for Liverpool hes never done .
I believe he didnt enjoy the menu. Meat is liked by him and fish was obtained by him.
He wasnt happy, and they are of course much more powerful playing with a side that provides them opportunities on the counter-attack and on the transition, but United at this moment play with a different profile.
They strive to be solid in the back and they retained the 3 centre-backs compact and solid with the midfield. They didnt like the menu.
Solskjaer is the director with the two experiences finish in a draw Klopp has faced in the Premier League and neglected to conquer.
Roy Keane told Sky Sports:It certainly helps, and the way of the operation was great. We looked in the machine and wondered whether it would be a negative setup, but it was to be somewhat positive. But the key for Ole would be always to kick out of here.
Its very simple to increase your match for this type of sport, together with the United fans behind you against Liverpool, but its now what they do over the upcoming few months. Get some sort of momentum to a run along with the season and they have to kick on.
But now will have been a big boost for them.
I believe both managers will be happy with the lure. The pressure was building from Liverpool, and their lads are talking quite seriously about themselves, however, I feel you need to give a bit of credit now to United.
They have the first goal and were allowed to sit down , but they have a bit sloppy. United lacked a bit of composure.
With Liverpool, in case you are referring to winning names, you are talking about amassing points once you play badly, and that is precisely what they did.
United now go at the Europa League to Partizan Belgrade on Thursday, before a trip to Norwich on Sunday.
Gary Neville stated:Clearly theyre about to move and perform away from home – that they play with Belgrade, Norwich, Chelsea and Bournemouth.
I believe this team is suited for counter-attacking and playing away from home, just the way that they setup just generally.
Theyve fought when groups have sat them off like Liverpool did now. James, Rashford and Martial want distance, therefore the off games might suit them but they have to go and win at Norwich and at Bournemouth.
On the Europa League, I really worry about the way this squad is going to cope with playing four games off in 10 days when you have a look at the chair now – there were young boys around there now.
There will be creeks along the way they can not manage to lose their best players – the league has to be the priority.
