Comments:

League position: 2nd New signing Anthony Martial scored with his first shot in the Premier League. Manchester United had now lost just one of their last 11 Premier League games at Old Trafford. United had now won eight of their last nine games against Liverpool in all competitions at Old Trafford.

Comments:

League position: 9th Liverpool had now only won one of their last eight away games in the Premier League. Although Christian Benteke had now scored in his last three Premier League appearances against Manchester United, he had lost two and drawn one of those games. His late goal meant the Reds had avoided failing to score in three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since March 2005.
