Adam Lallana snatched a point for Liverpool as VAR again took the headlines in a controversial 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

It was certainly a game of two halves in what was an extremely underwhelming 90 minutes of football.

Liverpool looked out of place in the first half, struggling to get into the game but turned the game on its head in the second half.

It took 36 minutes for the game to come to life with Marcus Rashford getting on the end of a Daniel James cross to put United one up.

VAR was checked after a Victor Lindelöf challenge on Divock Origi.

Mctominay picked up the ball and sent it through to Daniel James who then whipped it in for Rashford to finish.

Shortly before half time Liverpool had the ball in the back of the net, but once again VAR took centre stage.

The ball made contact with Sadio Mane’s hand, and under the new VAR rules it was correctly disallowed.

A dominant first half from United couldn’t be repeated in the second with Liverpool coming out firing.

The league leaders began to pile the pressure on and put United on the back foot but were still struggling to make any clear cut chances.

Substitutes Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana changed the game with the latter securing a valuable point for the reds in the 85th minute.

Evading the United defence with a simple run towards the back post, Lallana slotted home the equaliser from a Robertson cross.

Liverpool remain undefeated in the league but will be disappointed not to have picked up all three points against a below average Manchester United side.

Next stop for Liverpool is Belgium where they play Genk in the Champions League.
