“Re. David Peru. Haven’t Coronavirus restrictions sucked enough joy out of life already? Do we really need to prevent 20 year olds in peak physical condition from hugging, when they’ve been jostling in the six yard box just moments earlier? What’s the point?”
Two great finishes from two players who had previously been out of scoring touch. After Mason Greenwood’s equaliser, United have been the better team, the more threatening team. Luke Shaw has been great.
McTominay escapes from Jones, Shaw gets to the byline, and the cross into the centre causes chaos. McTominay arrives on the scene and his shot is blocked by a raft of Liverpool defenders. It was numbers rather than organisation that kept him out.
Fabinho is caught by a poor Alisson pass. He fouls Greenwood, it was heavy one. He is booked for that, deservedly so. United free-kick in a dangerous position. No Bruno to take it. Pogba takes instead but it’s well wide.
Liverpool get a corner and United deal with that a little more comfortably than the opposing defence. Milner smashes wide on the rebound.
Rashford falls over Thiago as he makes a burst on to the ball after another attack set up by a flying Shaw. United looking more confident now if still a little short of fluency.
