Liverpool star earn plaudits in Man Utd draw

Fans single out Liverpool superstar for praise as the Reds match unwanted record in Manchester United draw

January 17, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Red's star performed remarkably well as his side picked up a point in Sunday's epic clash.

Football fans have singled out Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker for praise after his heroics earned the Reds a vital point against Manchester United in Sunday's Premier League encounter. The Brazilian shot-stopper pulled off two stunning late saves to safeguarded their incredible unbeaten home record while keeping their title charge alive.

Having been the dominant force for the most part of the first half, Jurgen Klopp's side could not hit Manchester United where it hurts the most amid an array of chances. Generally, the visitors made life difficult for the defending champions with their superior defensive organization and counter-attacking tactic. 

In the end, the current leader could have had the last laugh with the two best chances of the game falling their way. However, Liverpool's Alisson Becker ensured that none of that would materialize by denying the Red Devils on both occasions. The first came inside the 75th minute with the former AS Roma man preventing Bruno Fernandes from scoring from close range after making contact with Luke Shaw's cross from the left flank.

Shortly after, Paul Pogba also had the chance to finally break the deadlock but saw his point-blank effort parried away by the resolute Liverpool goalkeeper. Watch the game's biggest highlights below:

In effect, Liverpool successfully run away with a point and denied Manchester United the opportunity to increase their lead over them to six points. They subsequently extended their unbeaten home record in the Premier League to 68 games although Sunday's goalless draw at Anfield meant that for the first time since since March 2005, they have failed to score in three straight league games. The Reds are only the third different reigning Premier League champion to do so after Arsenal in 1998-99 and Leicester City in 2016-17.

On the contrary, Manchester United maintained their status as league leaders although the deficit between them and second placed Leicester City has now been cut down to two. Having picked up a point at Anfield, the Old Trafford outfit are now a draw or win away from equalling their best-ever away record of 17 unbeaten games achieved in 1999.
