United’s unbeaten start to the season was ended in frustrating fashion at Prenton Park this evening, a Liverpool side reduced to ten men just after the half-hour mark managing to hang onto a 1-0 lead handed to them by David N’gog inside the first five minutes.

Sloppy defending allowed N’gog to pounce on a long ball and wrong-foot Ron-Robert Zieler in the United goal, and a strong Reds second-string struggled to get a foothold in the match as Liverpool controlled the first half-hour. A dubious red card for Damian Plessis then threatened to turn the game on its head, but while Ole Solskjaer’s side dominated possession thereafter and eventually fashioned several decent chances, an equaliser wasn’t to be forthcoming and a first reserve league defeat since March couldn’t be avoided.

United 0 Liverpool 0: Fierce rivals play out reserve bore draw

It would be fair to say that this is not one of those United-Liverpool clashes that will live long in the memory. Despite both teams fielding strong starting lineups featuring a number of players on the fringes of the two clubs’ respective title challenges, this was a game that never really got going, a game pretty much entirely starved of goalmouth action or drama. Ole Solskjaer’s side probably shaded things as far as possession and territory are concerned, but to all intents and purposes the two teams cancelled each other out on their way to a goalless draw that did little to improve their respective league positions.
