Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk expressed his frustration following his team’s draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, April 7. Despite withstanding early pressure from United, Liverpool seemed to be in control of the Premier League encounter. They took the lead in the 23rd minute through a spectacular goal from Luis Diaz. Throughout the first half, Jurgen Klopp’s side created numerous scoring opportunities but failed to convert them into goals.

Their inability to capitalize on these chances came back to haunt them as United staged an impressive comeback. Bruno Fernandes leveled the score with a remarkable goal from near the halfway line in the 50th minute, followed by a superb strike from Kobbie Mainoo in the 67th minute to put United ahead 2-1. However, Liverpool managed to salvage a point late in the game when Mohamed Salah converted a penalty after Aaron Wan-Bissaka was adjudged to have fouled Harvey Elliott in the box.

Van Dijk lamented his team’s failure to secure all three points despite their dominance. He remarked, “It’s all our own fault, again. We should have been 2-0 up at halftime, at least. We created dangerous moments and had them under control. It’s just a shame. It definitely feels like a loss at this point.”

Liverpool had 28 attempts on goal, with seven on target, while United had nine attempts, five of which were on target. Currently, Liverpool sits in second place in the league with 71 points from 31 games, level on points with league leaders Arsenal, who top the table due to their superior goal difference. Meanwhile, Manchester United occupies sixth place with 49 points from 31 matches.

Jurgen Klopp also highlighted his team’s lack of clinical finishing against Manchester United. Liverpool had a staggering 15 shots in the first half, while the home side failed to register any. Despite their dominant performance, Liverpool went into halftime with only a narrow 1-0 lead. Klopp emphasized that while Andre Onana made an impressive save from Dominik Szoboszlai, his team’s finishing left much to be desired. He stated, “Being 1-0 up at Old Trafford and having a 15-0 shooting stat is incredible. It immediately suggests there’s something lacking in the finishing department.”

Players like Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, and Luis Diaz had significant opportunities to score but failed to capitalize on them, often due to either overcomplicating the play with an extra pass or lacking accuracy in their finishing.
