Adam Lallana’s late equaliser rescued a point for Liverpool at Old Trafford as Manchester United ended the leaders’ flawless start to the Premier League season.
Liverpool were in search of their 18th successive league win to equal Manchester City’s top-flight record set between August and December 2017 but had to settle for a point after a scrappy encounter.
Marcus Rashford’s hotly-contested first-half goal, allowed after a video assistant referee check for a foul by Victor Lindelof on Divock Origi, looked to be condemning Liverpool to their first league loss since they went down at Manchester City in January.
Adam Lallana rescued a 1-1 draw for Liverpool against their fierce rivals at Old Trafford on Sunday to ensure they maintained their unbeaten record in the Premier League.
The draw leaves Liverpool six points clear at the top of the table ahead of last season’s champions Manchester City.
