Man United vs Liverpool: Lallana's goal helps Reds secure 1-1 draw

- Manchester United's clash with Liverpool clash has ended in a stalemate at Old Trafford

- Marcus Rashford scored the Red Devils opening goal in the first half

- Adam Lallana equalised for the visitors with less than five minutes left to play in the game

Liverpool dropped their first Premier League points this season following their 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring for the Red Devils in the 36th minute with a simple but tap-in after connecting with a cross from Daniel James from the right flank.

United quickly launched a counter-attack against their biggest rivals in English football after dispossessing Divock Origi in their own half.

Although Liverpool contested the goal on the grounds that Origi had been fouled in the build-up, the Video Assistant Referee threw out their appeal and allowed the goal stand.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men looked really rejuvenated all through the first half of the meeting.

They were impressive in their approach to the game, as they mounted pressure on their opponent's from the blast of the whistle, with Daniel James, especially, tormenting Liverpool's defence.

Sadio Mane pulled one back before the end of the first half but VAR had it ruled it out, as the ball touched Mane's hand before he slotted it past David De Gea.

The two teams resumed hostilities in the second half but United did not look like they wanted to relinquish their lead in the game.

Solskjaer's men continued their attacking display with the combination of James and Rashford tormenting the visitors but none of their efforts could find the back of the net.

In the 82nd minute, Fred launched a long-range shot that went wide off the Liverpool goal.

Three minutes later, second-half substitute Adam Lallana tapped into De Gea's net from Andy Robertson cross.

United did not do much to stop the current league leaders from scoring after leaving Lallana unmarked in the danger zone.
