Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has hailed Liverpool’s stand-in centre-back partnership, after they kept his attack at bay in Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Anfield.
The two Premier League title rivals clashed, with United attempting to go six points clear of the champions.
Jurgen Klopp was forced to field midfielders Fabinho and Jordan Henderson in central defence, with his three senior centre-backs all sidelined.
United’s counter-attack struggled to click for much of the match, with Liverpool’s makeshift back-line defending well, though they did carve out the two best chances of the match only to be denied by Becker Alisson.
“Fair play to them – with two central midfielders at the back and to defend as well as they did shows their quality,” Solskjaer told BBC.
The Red Devils travel to Fulham next in the Premier League.
