Manchester United endured one of their worst attacking displays in recent Premier League history against Liverpool on Tuesday.

The Red Devils failed to register a single shot in the opening 45 minutes at Anfield. It was the first time in the top flight they had reached half-time without having an attempt on goal since a meeting with Manchester City in April 2018.

United had just 24.5% of the possession during the first half and only managed two touches in the opposition box – 23 fewer than Liverpool, who led 2-0 at the interval thanks to goals from Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah.

Ralf Rangnick's side 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 versus any other opponent in the competition.
