EPL: Injury-Raved Manchester United Hold Liverpool
Despite being ravaged by series of injury setbacks, Manchester United did enough to hold Liverpool to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford On Sunday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was forced to make all three of his substitutions in the first half but Liverpool could not capitalise on that disruption to United to take home all three points.
The Reds do still regain top spot from Manchester City but may feel that they have missed an opportunity to gain real momentum in the Premier League title race.
It was a nervy start from United with Ashley Young's short first-minute back-pass forcing David de Gea to handle the ball under pressure from Roberto Firmino.

The story of the first half was the spate of injuries which hampered both sides, United in particular. Marcus Rashford appeared to be the first casualty but played through the pain while his team lost Ander Herrera and Juan Mata inside the opening 24 minutes.
With no goals from both sides, Liverpool are back on top with a solitary point advantage while United have dropped to fifth one point behind fourth-placed Arsenal.
