Man Utd 1 Liverpool 1: Sub Lallana rescues Liverpool late on after Rashford opener and two VAR verdicts put Utd on top – The Sun

SUB Adam Lallana nicked a late Liverpool leveller after Marcus Rashford's opener and two VAR decisions left resurgent Manchester United on top.

Rashford volleyed a 36th minute opener from Daniel James' perfect cross – but Lallana tapped home to reward Liverpool's second-half pressure and put them six points clear in the Premier League.

Impressive Rashford peaked his menacing display up front by stabbing home a goal that was allowed despite video replays suggesting Victor Lindelof fouled Kop frontman Divock Origi seconds earlier.

Then Sadio Mane's prompt equaliser was erased after VAR showed he handled the ball as he bustled past Harry Maguire.

But after United's opening-period superiority against hesitant-looking visitors faded, Liverpool switched to 4-4-2 and increasingly pushed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men back, helped by busy replacement midfield Alec Oxlade-Chamberlain.

And finally Lallana was left free at the far post to slot home.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Oxlade-Chamberlain fired close late on – but a draw was fair.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had been furious after getting the worse of the two VAR decisions.

But in the end he would surely be happy with his side's resilience, given they were off-colour before the interval and after the break rarely turned their ample possession into domination.

United chief Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could point to a rousing first 45 minutes, much more confident and fluid than of late.

Rashford revelled in being the main man on the counter-attack, while midfielder Andreas Pereira produced arguably his best United performance.
