In the first half

In the 25th minute, in a ball dispute between Van Dijk and De Gea, the ball reached Firmino’s foot and the Brazilian striker after controlling the technical ball and scored the goal. However, after the fierce reaction of the visitors, the referee had to resort to VAR technology and the goal was not recognized when the referee confirmed Van Dijk had fouled De Gea. However, the Spaniard was shown a yellow card after overreacting to his referee.
It was not until the 40th minute that the MU players could hit the first shot from the beginning of their match towards the goalkeeper Alisson. Martial’s quick shot at the edge of the penalty area just missed the post.

Entering the second half of this football event, Liverpool accelerated the match speed that made MU players surprised and continuously fell into a difficult position. Salah, Mane and Henderson consecutively rock De Gea’s goal.
But then the kick in the empty posture of the Egyptian rolled off the post, the ball of Mane’s finish went off the post, then Henderson’s long shot from the second line hit the post again.
