Yeah, but City have only played Chelsea.

Blimey, never not known some pre match nonsense on here for this match!

Well, we're not really in this. It's take a draw after that first half.

Nice to know LIPA is still producing great actors, though.

Lukaku not looking sharp, hopefully we'll still be level by the time Rashford comes on ��

Absolutely no ambition to win this game, has Rashford even touched the ball yet? Liverpool will be gutted if they don't win this!

Horrid to watch, they were better but they're just not good at converting their dominance.

A point was good for us, we were wretched.

Abysmal absolutely abysmal. From beginning to end. Apart from De Gea there is not one player on today who was fit to wear a Manchester United shirt. Lukaku world class

How very disappointing! I think we can get some idea of our quality against the better teams...and Liverpool aren't even that good (...they couldn't beat this 'worst performance of the season' United after all). God help us when we play the TOP teams

...still, we're top of the Premiership for a couple of hours at least...enjoy

Liverpool gave it their all. We had an off day.

Lukaku was crap today but what service did he have? Today was a day for Ibra really. With him as an option, we'd have been a different side.

He would need a better midfield, & for Manchester United to rely on a 36 year old striker, shows how far down we have gone. I have said it before & I will say it again, we need two world class strikers to begin to compete at the top, & we ain't got any.

There was an offer on a betting site offering 33/1 for a goal to be scored, bet they're laughing

Pogba would have made a difference today. Uninspiring performance, but for all their possession, I didn’t think Liverpool put any pressure on us. Fantastic save from DDG aside, they were also poor. A very bad advert for the PL! Jose wanted a draw, he got it. Our worst performance of the season and we didn’t ever look like losing. So can’t be too unhappy.

Well, seems like City are still banging them in for fun so our stint at the top is over...no surprise there. I know things change throughout the season and still plenty of games to go but it's difficult to see us realistically competing with them for the top spot

By all accounts Liverpool should have been there for the taking given how bad our defence is - allegedly - and what a great strike force you allegedly have.

Quite why you played for a draw is anyone's guess.

“The other day my son who lives in London went to Paris and not to Manchester to watch the match,” Mourinho said. Asked why his son chose that option, the United manager added: “Because at the moment in Paris there is something special. Magic, quality, youth, it’s fantastic.”


He forgot to mention 'money'...It's bad enough when players are flashing their eyes at another club...when a manager does it, it's pathetic...particularly when it's THAT club...wait for mention of the 'interesting project' soon..
