This game was approached very tactically by LvG and he got the results he desired. It wasn't the prettiest of football games but United got the job done with just one shot on target. Liverpool bossed possession for the better part of the game and threatened on the attack but David de Gea was on form with some important saves proving once again his status as a world class keeper and was deservedly adjudged man of the match. Liverpool was wasteful in front of goal whiles United struggled to create any clear cut chances but when it mattered most, they delivered and took home all three points. LvG will be glad to have done the double over their fiercest rival this season.
