Jurgen Klopp’s side made the trip to Old Trafford on Thursday night, to face off against their fierce rivals Manchester United in the second leg of their Europa League tie. Liverpool had dominated the first leg at Anfield and went into the game with a two-goal cushion knowing that a draw would be enough to push them through. It would have been tough for the Red Devils to respond after such a defeat, yet they started the game off positively and manager Louis van Gaal would have been happy with what he saw. The hosts took the lead in the 32 minute, as Anthony Martial was brought down in the box by Clyne and he stepped up to open the scoring for his side, making it 2-1 on aggregate. However, that did not last long as Brazilian Philippe Coutinho delivered once again in a big match situation, as he equalized for the Merseyside club just on the stroke of half-time to make it 3-1 overall, with United needing 3 goals to go through in the remaining 45 minutes.

There were no more goals in the second period, as both sides looked to push for a win. Chances were created and wasted and it was eventually a goalless half. The two teams were held to a draw on the night as they tried to win the match though the visitors eventually went through to the next round of the cup competition.
