KEANE: “Sloppy mistakes towards the end, showed good quality and good character, Ole will be pleased.”
Mourinho: “Liverpool did something (to earn the points) but Ole and United, after such a fantastic effort, will be disappointed after one mistake.”
“United had more than heart, had a gameplan, stuck to it but if I was Ole I would be proud but also frustrated.
Souness: “Liverpool got away with it today, United worked their socks off. Result was fair if you examine the stats.”
“United will take a lot from that result, they did a great job on Liverpool's fullbacks.”
Neville: Ole has been questioned tactically but today he got it absolutely right, the goal came from what they've been working on in midweek.
“United are fragile, if they had conceded 20 minutes earlier I think Liverpool would have won the game.”
HENDERSON: “I'm delighted for him (Lallana), he's worked so hard, he saved us with a point today. Could be a big point come the end of the season.
“We could have been better today, we know that, but if you can't win, don't lose.
“We were quite sloppy first half, it was quite scrappy, caused them more problems second half.”
Lallana on Klopp's instructions: “Just make an impact, I thought Ox did extremely well
“If we're gonna win the league, we're gonna need a squad not just an 11. Towards the endI felt we were the only team pushing for a winner.”
And that's it – all over. A 1-1 draw.
United would have taken that before kick-off, but will feel so deflated at going so close to getting the win.
Sub Lallana made a real difference, and his first goal in 18 months was enough to scramble the point.
It wasn't pretty for Liverpool, but they didn't lose.
FT Man Utd 1Liv 1
Is there time for one more chance – you suspect that may be the case…..
Oxlade-Chamberlain latches onto the ball 25-yards out and lashes a left-footed shot inches wide of the post with De Gea struggling to make his ground.
