Liverpool Vs. Manchester United: Hosts Still On Top

More chances for Liverpool! Manchester United's defence is having real problems tracking the runs of Luis Suarez and Fabio Borini so far, and when the former drops back into midfield to collect the ball, the visitors lose their concentration for long enough to allow the latter through the back line. The Italian international latches onto the ball, but his shot from a tight angle is blocked by a recovering Johnny Evans, with the bounce falling United's way and allowing them to clear.

A little while later, Patrice Evra's forced into a lunging challenge to prevent Suarez bursting into the box. It's successful, but this is certainly not the start that the visitors, who're looking at perhaps the worst Liverpool side in a generation, would have envisioned. They'll need to settle down, control play, and let their quality show -- casual giveaways from Michael Carrick in midfield are, therefore, exactly not what the doctor ordered. It comes to nothing, but that mistake was rather symptomatic of their play so far. Still 0-0.
