Liverpool vs Manchester United Premier League Match Result December 2023

In their upcoming Premier League clash at Anfield on Sunday, the top-of-the-table Liverpool will face Manchester United. Jurgen Klopp and his team aim to secure their leading position, particularly following Manchester City's 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace on Saturday, making a victory crucial.

Meanwhile, Manchester United currently sits seventh in the standings and is grappling with a crisis fueled by poor form and their recent exit from the Champions League. In their last five matches, United has experienced two defeats and three wins. Their most recent Premier League fixture resulted in a 0-3 loss to Bournemouth, followed by elimination from the Champions League.

Although Manchester United's quest for a victory at Liverpool extends into its eighth year, the 0-0 draw at Anfield on Sunday was seen as a positive outcome for manager Erik ten Hag. It marked a day when his players halted their nine-game losing streak against top-10 opponents away from Old Trafford, alleviating some of the crisis talk generated by three defeats in four games leading up to the match against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.

Erik ten Hag commented on the importance of good organization and defending in football, acknowledging that the next step for his team is to increase the number of passes into the box to pose a greater threat to their opponents. 

While the backs-to-the-wall performance doesn't signal the end of United and Ten Hag's season-long crisis, it does provide a glimmer of hope. The manner in which they secured the result on Sunday, along with the players' contributions, gives Ten Hag the confidence that his team can begin to emerge from their slump.

It's noteworthy that despite Liverpool's dominance in possession (69%) and shots (34 compared to United's six), as well as a 12-0 advantage in corner kicks, both teams left the pitch with a point when referee Michael Oliver signaled the end of the match.
