Liverpool were lucky to escape with a point after beingoutworked from Manchester United, according to the Super Sunday panel.
Jurgen Klopps side saw their lead on peak of the Premier League table trimmed after having to come from behind to draw 1-1 with United at Old Trafford.
By playing with an intensity so frequently lacking this year the league leaders were dragged by united to some scrap, also Graeme Souness admitted his former side were fortunate to come away with a stage.
He told Sky Sports:I thought Liverpool got away with it now, but you have to provide attention to Manchester United as throughout this first half, that they worked his socks off. They did not allow Liverpool to get in the game at all.
Their Travels is well famous for their work-rate but they were outworked and bossed in there today. Overall, I think if you analyze the stats using 68 percent possession that the outcome is reasonable.
However, United will take a lot from it. They turned up today – a threat was carried by them and they looked organised.
Salah was outside and Manchester United did a great job in their full-backs, but for the objective. But Liverpool have certainly got out with one for a lot of their players did not turn up.
Liverpool have a midfield which will outwork anybody, however they got outworked in the first half which is extremely unusual.
When they reach the last , they havent got any cuteness in the midfield but that which they do have is workaholics, with Fabinho, both Henderson and Wijnaldum.
Thats why they huffed and puffed for big intervals now as United sat so deep. It is quite unpleasant to be too critical on the Liverpool midfield.
While United needed the point more than Liverpool, a win against their competitors and Premier League leaders might have made a difference.
In the short term, the extra two points would have lifted Ole Gunnar Solskjaers facet to in the table instead of 13th, while a win that few people outside of Old Trafford seriously expected would have been the spark needed to kickstart their season and lift morale among the group and fans.
Former United manager Jose Mourinho was amazed by his successor setup to nullify the danger of Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane together with the effective utilization of somelow block.
I feel such as Liverpool have some constraints when they develop against groups with reduced cubes, he told Sky Sports. They have fantastic results but occasionally they win only from the limits.
Sometimes they smash opponents that perform how they wish to play , but clearly there is a little bit of frustration for Jurgen. At Old Trafford, that is a distinctive spot for Liverpool to win, so hes never done .
I feel he did not enjoy the menu. He likes meat, and fish was got by him.
He wasnt happy, and theyre obviously much stronger playing with a side who provides them opportunities on the counter-attack and on the transition, but United now play a different profile.
They strive to be solid at the rear and they maintained the three centre-backs solid and compact with all the midfield. They did not like the menu.
Solskjaer is the only director with the two encounters finish in a draw, Klopp has faced more than once from the Premier League and failed to beat.
Roy Keane told Sky Sports:It certainly helps, along with the way of the performance was good. We looked in the machine and wondered whether itd be a negative set-up, but it was to be very positive. But the key now for Ole is to kick on from here.
Its very simple to increase your match for this type of game, with all the United fans supporting you against Liverpool, but it is now what they do during the upcoming few weeks. They have to kick and get some type of momentum to a winning run and the season.
But now will have been a huge boost for them.
I think both supervisors will be satisfied with the draw. The pressure was building out of Liverpool, and their lads are currently talking very critically about themselves, but I believe you need to give a little credit now to United.
They have the first target and then were permitted to sit in, but they got a little bit sloppy. United lacked a bit of composure.
With Liverpool, in case youre referring to winning names, you are talking about amassing points once you play poorly, and that is exactly what they did.
United go in the Europa League to Partizan Belgrade on Thursday, before a Visit on Sunday to Norwich.
Gary Neville explained:Clearly they are going to go and play away from home – they play in Belgrade, Norwich, Chelsea and Bournemouth.
I believe this group is suited for counter-attacking and playing away from home, just the way that they set up only normally.
They have struggled when teams have sat them off like Liverpool did today. Martial, Rashford and james need distance, so the away games might suit them but they have to go and win at Norwich and in Bournemouth.
On the Europa League, I really be concerned about how this squad will cope with playing four games off in 10 days when you have a look at the chair now – there have been young boys on there now.
Therell be creeks across the way they can not afford to drop their best players the league has to be the priority.
