A goal from Adam Lallana in the waning moments of the game helped Liverpool hold Manchester United to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The game started with a dominant Jurgen Klopp’s side making the Red Devils fight tooth and nail to survive the attack.

It is to note that Liverpool were playing without their ace striker Mohamed Salah as the Egyptian winger sustained an injury against Leicester City after a horror tackle from Hamza Choudhury.

United grabbed the opportunity with both hands and Marcus Rashford was the their man to draw the first blood in the 36th minute.

The goal by Rashford was a controversial one as Liverpool claimed for a foul in the build-up of the goal, but the VAR ruled out Reds’ request and United were awarded a goal.

All of a sudden the game turned in favour of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and the Reds got desperate for an equalizer.

Soon after that a first-half strike from Sadio Mane was ruled out by VAR for handball.

Till the 84th minute, Liverpool were trailing by a goal but their relentlessness was put to an end by the equaliser in the 85th minute from Adam Lallana. The final whistle blew with the scoreline of 1-1.

The result brought an end to Liverpool’s 17-match winning run in the Premier League and they fall one short of matching Manchester City’s record tally of 18 consecutive victories.
