Two goals from Shaqiri in the last part decided the match in favor of Liverpool (3-1). Juan Mata (3 goals and 4 assists in 7 previous matches against Liverpool) couldn’t contribute to the score. Next Saturday, Man U will have to visit Cardiff.
Manchester United were defeated at Anfield against Liverpool, leaders of the Premier League. A goal from Lingard (33′) neutralized Mané’s goal on the 24th and let the Red Devils reach the final part of the match with an even score. Nevertheless, two goals from Shaqiri (73′ and 80′) decided the match in favor of the locals.
Juan Mata came in for Lingard (85′). Liverpool was a team that used to be good for the international Spaniard. In the Premier League, Juan has scored 3 goals and 4 assists against Liverpool. He had participated in three goals on his last 3 visits to Anfield, but this time, although he shot once, he had very little time to change the score.
United’s next appointment will be on the 22nd of December, day in which they’ll have to beat Cardiff at the Welsh capital. It will be the first of the many matches to come during Christmas.
