Comments:

League position: 9th Liverpool had now won one of the five games they had played in 2016 (all competitions). This was the first time in ten games in all competitions at Anfield under recently appointed manager Jurgen Klopp that the Reds had failed to score.

Comments:

League position: 5th With his 176th goal for Manchester United, Wayne Rooney became the new record goalscorer for one club in the Premier League (Thierry Henry scored 175 goals for Arsenal). He had also scored in four consecutive games for United for the first time since March 2012. It was also his first goal at Anfield since 15 January 2005. United named an unchanged Premier League starting XI in this game for the first time since 22 March 2015 on their last visit to Anfield.
