And let’s not pretend that Thiago and Wijnaldum are poor substitutes for Hendo and Fabinho.Yeah, fine defensively, but the results against the likes of Fulham and West Brom arose because of a loss of composure in the middle (and the terrible striking ofc). United never put any pressure on Liverpool's midfield, and while Thiago would make a difference, he is still not fully fit and failed to really impose himself in the second half.
Failing to do anything of note is also a bit of a misnomer. Two key Alisson saves there.
Encouraged by that second half performance. Created good chances but couldn't put them away. First half was atrocious and doesn't bear thinking about.
