The honours were shared in this hugely anticipated fixture which, in truth, didn`t live up to its billing with clear-cut chances kept to a minimum.

However, it`s fair to say that Jose Mourinho will be more pleased with the point than his opposite number Jurgen Klopp.

Whilst Liverpool may have, as far as shots go, far more than Manchester United, there was only really one moment when David de Gea was called upon to show just what a world-class keeper he is.

With Liverpool`s fast-pace football opening Manchester United up, De Gea was forced to produce a wonderful reaction save, with an out-stretched leg to keep out a goal-bound effort from Joel Matip.

Most of Liverpool`s attacking efforts resulted in shots going wide or the final ball not quite being up to the standard required.

However, despite being on the back-foot for long periods of the game, Manchester United did have a chance to snatch a victory when Romelu Lukaku, usually so lethal in front of goal, didn`t hit his shot clean enough and Simom Mignolet pulled off a good save.

The win temporarily lifted Manchester united to the top-of-the-table, a position they lost when or neighbours beat Stoke City 7-2.

However, Jose Mourinho will be pleased that his side kept a ninth clean-sheet in ten Premier League games.
