Manchester United played out a 0-0 draw away at Anfield last night, in a game where a point away from home was always going to be a positive result. That’s exactly what happened as Jose Mourinho got his tactics absolutely spot on, and completely nullified the Liverpool attack throughout the ninety minutes.
When the scousers did manage to break through the Manchester United defence, the Liverpool forwards were confronted by an in-form David de Gea, who just wasn’t going to let the opposition score.
As the game wore on the pressure was building, but David de Gea made an exquisite save to keep Emre Can at bay midway through the second half. He then followed that up with a simply sensational stop to prevent Philippe Coutinho finding the back of the net from long range.
The fans were lauding their #1 on social media, so we’ve compiled some of the best tweets aimed at the Spaniard below.
