Gary Neville rates Liverpool FC’s title prospects after Man United draw
The Man United legend believes Liverpool FC are still in a good position in the Premier League title race
Gary Neville believes Liverpool FC are still in a great position in the Premier League title race despite Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Old Trafford.
Liverpool FC were held to a goalless draw with Manchester United despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side being ravaged by injury in the first half.
The home side lost Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard to injury in the opening 45 minutes to give Liverpool FC a big advantage.
The Premier League leaders produced a composed performance at the back as their big-name signings Alisson Becker and Virgil van Dijk produced solid performances.
However, Liverpool FC’s attack failed to click and the Reds failed to register a shot on goal in open play.
Klopp’s side hoisted themselves above Manchester City and into top spot thanks to their valuable point in the title race.
But the perception was Liverpool FC missed a golden opportunity to restore a three-point lead over the Citizens at the top of the table.
Former Manchester United defender Neville gave his assessment of Liverpool FC’s stalemate at Manchester United.
“We don’t know what they’re thinking,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“In here I’d say it is a good point for Liverpool, they defended well, two clean sheets against two big teams but do they carry a negative thought out of it? I don’t know.
“I think where Jurgen Klopp will be disappointed is that was a chance to make a statement. Coming to win at Old Trafford with 11 games to go was a statement moment.
“I still think Liverpool are in with a great chance of winning the league but the fury that he’ll have tonight is his team could have done so much better. That game was there for the taking.
“In the first half with 20 minutes to go United were there. They reorganised and did really well”
Liverpool FC will welcome Watford to Anfield and the Citizens will host West Ham United at The Etihad on Wednesday night.
Manchester City beat Chelsea FC 4-3 on penalties after 120 minutes in the League Cup final at Wembley at the weekend.
