Manchester United surprised the watching world by coming within minutes of securing an unlikely victory over Liverpool on Sunday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to play five across midfield, with Daniel James and Marcus Rashford attacking down the middle, successfully stifled Liverpool’s passing lanes and allowed for the pair to combine for an excellent counterattacking goal just before half-time – albeit with some controversy (but not actual controversy) over VAR.
The home side defended resolutely in the second half, preventing Liverpool from creating clear-cut opportunities, only for a mistake at a cross to afford Adam Lallana an easy tap-in at the far post.
