Jose Mourinho: "We kept control of the game"

A typical Jose Mourinho performance against important opposition away from home saw Manchester United leave Anfield with a share of the spoils following a dull disappointing game against Liverpool on Monday night.

Neither side managed to create much of note, though David de Gea was once again the star of the show for United, producing one excellent save to deny Philippe Coutinho in the second half.


Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson: "We are frustrated"

Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson's post match reaction said it all as the Reds were held to a goal-less draw at home by a Manchester United side that lacked ambition and recorded the lowest possession stat since records of the same started being formally kept 12 years ago.

United mustered just a solitary shot on target, while limiting a slightly more fluid Liverpool side to just 3 as the two long term rivals produced a rather forgettable occasion on Monday night.

Jurgen Klopp: "We didn't wait for the right pass"

Liverpool missed out on the opportunity to go top of the table, held to a dull and unimaginative goal-less draw by a resolute Manchester United side at Anfield.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wore a disappointed look after the game, not so much with the result, but with how his side played, lacking their usually fluency as the occasion of a big derby game seemed to get the better of them, perhaps with a mixture of nerves and wanting to possibly try too hard to win.


Mourinho does it again as Man United hold Liverpool to incredibly dull draw

Liverpool and Manchester United produced one of the dullest derbies in recent memory with the two teams mustering a combined 4 shots on target over the course of 90 minutes as the two hardworking sides, desperate to close down space in the opposition's third ensured that there was absolutely no fluency to the game and neither side got high up the pitch, allowing the other to catch them on the break.

Manchester United made two changes to their starting eleven for this game with Ashley Young getting his first Premier League start of the season on the left wing, while the massive presence of Marouane Fellaini returned into a three man midfield for the Red Devils, alongside Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba.


La Liga Round-up: Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico register comprehensive wins

The effects of the international break were not felt in Spain in the eighth round of games as the top six sides in the La Liga all won, with some of them doing so in style.

The first round of matches after players return from duties with their respective countries can produce surprises, and one momentarily looked in the cards in the Vicente Calderon before Yannick Carrasco scored a hat-trick and gave two assists as Atletico Madrid retained their leadership of the Primera Liga in fine style with a 7-1 win at home to Granada.


Real Madrid eyeing Sporting star

Real Madrid will be tracking Sporting Lisbon's promising talent Gelson Martins as he participates in the game against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League group stage here on Tuesday.

Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manha on Monday said that Real Madrid will be sending its watchmen to Lisbon, not only to analyze the match between its group rivals, but also to assess the level of the new Portuguese gem.
