Man United stay top after drawing at Liverpool
LIVERPOOL, England (AP):
Manchester United stayed top of the Premier League after drawing 0-0 yesterday with Liverpool and extending the champion's winless run to four matches.
Liverpool have not gone as long without a win since 2017, but Jurgen Klopp's team still maintained their unbeaten record at Anfield since the same year, thanks to Alisson Becker's late saves from Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.
"We had two great chances and two great saves," United captain Harry Maguire said. "It was cagey, but it was two good teams matching up. We found it difficult in the first half to get a rhythm to the game, the press was high."
Thiago Alcantara's long-range effort was well saved by United goalkeeper David De Gea in the 78th minute as Liverpool failed to score for a third successive match.
Liverpool, which had a makeshift defence due to injuries, stayed three points behind United, who are chasing their first title since 2013.
