The Manchester United-Liverpool game at Old Trafford on Sunday was marred by first-half injuries to at least four players. There was nothing much to cheer about for the fans of the two teams as Star Sports Select FC screened the live the game that ended up in a scoreless draw.
Ranveer Singh surprised the fans with a special appearance at Star Sports Select FC Screening between Manchester United and Liverpool. He was accompanied by Mumbai City FC stars Modou Sougou, Amrinder Singh, Lucian Goian and Raynier Fernandes.
Ranveer turned out to be the sole worthwhile entertainment quotient as the match struggled to recover from an entertainment perspective after Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Roberto Firmino and Jesse Lingard were all forced off injured.
The match would have been the perfect occasion for Mohamed Salah to score his 50th Premier League goal for the Reds and become the fastest player to reach that milestone, but he endured a poor day, arguably one of his worst in a Liverpool shirt.
This was the fifth draw played out by Manchester United and Liverpool in their last seven meetings in all competitions (one win each), as many as their previous 50 encounters combined beforehand.
The draw takes Liverpool top of the Premier League, meaning today will be the 400th day they have finished top of the table in the competition’s history.
