Another big game another scared stiff performance from us. So hard to watch us play like this.

Rashford and Greenwood - the most overrated players in the world. Need to learn how to pass the ball first.

Thought we could have shown more. Probably should have won but you always take a draw at Anfield.

They were absolutely there for the taking today. This Liverpool team is nowhere near the level of last season.

Bruno and Rashford were both utterly atrocious as well. With just an ounce of composure in the final third, we win.

Shaw our MOTM.

Today is a damn great result.

I didn't ask for anything more. I wanted a win vs Burnley and avoiding a loss vs Liverpool. We did absolutely that. Get in.

We could have won yeah but the primary target wasn't losing first and foremost.

If Fernandes or Pogba put their chances away we have the 3pts there.

Good result, but need to beat those around us to stay top.

Not as bad as the match day thread would have you believe. Good chances and were the better team in the second half, should've won it really.

Missed the first half, but from what I saw in the second, apart from their pressing, they're a mere shadow of their former glory. Probably a win for us would've not been quite deserved, but I still think we could've done better with our last few chances.

Bleh! They were there for the taking 2nd half.

Bruno was absolutely shocking. His passing and decision making has been terrible for a good month or so.

Shaw MOTM
Pogba good

Advantage City as far as the league goes but a worse result for Liverpool than us. We’ll be top tonight, they’ll be joint 4th and completely out of form.

Created some good chances, but if we showed a bit more ambition then this game was there for the taking.

Shaw was excellent. Pogba played well in an unfamiliar position. Rashford & Bruno were very poor. Cavani should be starting in #9 role.

At the end we have much better chances to win. Pogba big miss. Bruno too.

Rashford was very selfish not to pass to Cavani when 2 vs 1. Rashford is still lacking football intelligent. His game is all about speed and power.

Boring but thought we were probably the better team. The Bruno and Pogba chances were by far the biggest of the game. Feel we could have gone for it a bit more but no real complaints from me.

We're very wasteful up front, rarely play direct when there's space.

Shaw for me was our best player but I hated how he stalled in the end with the throw ins.

Boring. Frustrating that we missed our chances, but happy with the draw. Bruno and Rashford look tired and need a rest.

Does Rashford have any interest in doing anything other than running behind defenders, usually offside? He won't take on headers, doesn't want to pass, and he's perpetually looking tired, injured or disinterested. So disappointing he got a full 90

feck me. Is this a brilliant result or a massive missed opportunity? Probably a bit of both.

First 30 minutes were utterly awful but we grew into the game, especially the midfield. Back four was outstanding, most notably Shaw.

Those chances by Bruno and Pogba... draw is a fair result overall but in the end we were closer to winning it.

Not overly disappointed but the game was there to be won and we didn't take it.

Happy with the way we defended, Liverpool were the better team in terms of overall football but I don't think they would have scored with another 90 minutes, and we could have easily won it by 1 or 2 on another day.

We had the better chances and can’t really complain about a point away at Anfield, unlucky not to win it in the second half

Great point! Defended excellently, like we clearly set out to do. And we actually had the best chances. Lots of ifs and buts, and would have been great to end their home run, but all in all...a very good result!

Don't get me wrong, a point away against Liverpool is hardly a bad thing, but they had Fabinho and Henderson as their CB pairing...

Feel that they were there for the taking, just we didn't do enough.

Bruno and Rashford, 0/10.
