Manchester United endured one of their worst attacking performances in recent Premier League history against Liverpool on Tuesday.
The Red Devils failed to record a single shot in the first 45 minutes at Anfield. It was the first time in the top flight that they had reached the break without having had an attempt at goal since a meeting with Manchester City in April 2018.
United had only 24.5% of ball possession in the first half and reached only two touches in the opposing field – 23 fewer than Liverpool, who led 2-0 in the interval thanks to goals from Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah.
Ralf Rangnick’s team completed 92 passes – more than 300 fewer than Liverpool – and only seven of them came in Liverpool’s final third.
United have now conceded more Premier League goals against Liverpool (74) than they have compared to any other opponent in the competition.
