With Saturday’s Premier League clash between these two fierce rivals looming, the North-West giants’ respective second strings played out an entertaining and, at times, pulsating clash this evening at Warrington Wolves’ Halliwell Jones Stadium. Liverpool’s multi-national XI capitalised on defensive and goalkeeping lapses from the visitors early in each half – Philipp Degen and Dani Pacheco with the goals – but in between, a dominant United display saw Ole Solskjaer’s side take a deserved 2-1 lead into the break after fine goals from Danny Welbeck and Fábio da Silva. The second half never quite lived up to the quality of the first, the game petering out into an increasingly feisty and niggly affair and the home side definitely the happier with the final result.

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

Manchester United Reserves 0-0 Liverpool Reserves

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.
