Dogged United frustrate Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp's wait for a league victory over Manchester United stretched to four games as Liverpool were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw at Anfield.

In front of the new Kenny Dalglish Stand, Liverpool fought tirelessly for the victory, registering 18 shots to United's six, but a dogged defensive display, coupled with the brilliance of David de Gea kept the hosts at bay.

It means Liverpool, who have not tasted victory over their fierce rivals in the Premier League since March 2014, failed to cut the gap on United, who remain seven points clear of Klopp's side after stretching their unbeaten run to eight games.Having won six and drawn one of their opening seven league games, United were the form side ahead of kick-off but it was Liverpool who posed the greater threat throughout.
