Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had the better chances to win the match in the second half.

Paul Pogba failed to convert a guilt-edged opportunity near the end of the game in what would be the best chance of the clash.

Liverpool failed to find a way past David de Gea up the other end, though.

One player who caught the eye on the night was Luke Shaw who put in a notably impressive shift.

 

 

But speaking to BBC Sport, the England international explained how his team felt post-final-whistle.

“It’s a bit flat in the dressing room,” he said. “They had the majority of the ball but we all felt we could have won the game. They had chances but not clear-cut like ours.

“A point is better than none. We didn’t start well and we were on the back foot straight away. We dug in and created good chances.

“We said before the game coming down the one-way street usually you see all the fans. It did feel a bit flat but we need to get used to this. It doesn’t feel like fans are coming back any time soon. But we’re professional footballers, we need to clear all that out.”

Sturdy Shaw gets the plaudits

Left-back Shaw saved his best performance of the season for the reigning champions.

The former Southampton man won 100 per cent of his tackles and made eight ball recoveries. He also attained a magnificent 100 per cent long pass accuracy.

This didn’t escape the attention of Sky Sport pundit Roy Keane. The former Red Devils captain singled him out for an endearing outing.

“The back four always worry me but they were brilliant,” he told Sky Sports (via the Sport Review).

“Shaw was brilliant defensively and going forward.”

United have now gone 16 away Premier League games without defeat.
