Manchester United, Liverpool End Tie In Stalemate

Adam Lallana’s late equaliser rescued a point for Liverpool at

Old Trafford as Manchester United ended their flawless start

to the Premier League season.

Liverpool were in search of their 18th successive league win to equal

Manchester City’s top-flight record set between August and December

2017 but had to settle for a point after a scrappy encounter.

Marcus Rashford’s hotly contested first-half goal, allowed after a video assistant referee check for a foul by Victor Lindelof on Divock Origi, looked to be condemning Liverpool to their first league loss since they went down at Manchester City in January.

Rashford finished neatly from Daniel James’ cross in the 36th minute

but Liverpool, who saw a first-half strike from Sadio Mane ruled out

by VAR for handball, struck back when substitute Lallana arrived

unmarked at the far post to score from Andy Robertson’s cross

five minutes from time.

The draw means Liverpool’s advantage at the top of the table has been

cut to six points.
