Manchester United were not able to secure victory against Liverpool at Old Trafford, with Sunday’s scoreline ending 0-0. The Merseysiders would have certainly been the happier team after taking a point home, as it elevates them to the top spot of the Premier League table, for now.
United, on the other hand, dropped their 4th spot to Arsenal, but would have been pleased with the draw given that they had to make all three of their substitutions in the first half itself, with Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, and Jesse Lingard all coming off injured.
In fact, Liverpool were outclassed by the Red Devils in the second-half, with United putting up a staunch defensive display, ensuring that the visitors only had one shot on target throughout the game.
This is in sharp contrast to the reverse fixture in December, which has cost Jose Mourinho his job. Of course, one pundit may have confused the two games, and he certainly received his due for it.
When quizzed upon who was the better side and whether Liverpool had played well in the fixture, Souness launched into his analysis as to why the Reds had come out on top according to him.

This was met with a stern stare from Vidic, with the two men being separated by the host David Jones. Souness clearly caught this stare, and it seemed to anger him.
His reply to the question was as follows: “I thought they did. I thought they dominated the ball up until the 18 yard box of Manchester United.”
It was at this point that he may have caught Vidic’s stern look, to which he added: “Why you looking like that? Do you not agree with me?”
Vidic certainly didn’t, even if he didn’t indicate so verbally, and quite a few spectators of the game may also disagree with the pundit.
