Juan Mata, the protagonist of some memorable performance at Anfield, did not have minutes on this occasion. In a reasonably even match, the Red Devils came close to taking all three points as Bruno Fernandes and Pogba were denied by Alisson in both chances. De Gea, for his part, had to stretch to save a shot from Thiago.
