Manchester United are three points ahead of Liverpool in the table but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was frustrated his side did not win at Anfield.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer felt Manchester United missed an opportunity against Liverpool after they played out a 0-0 draw with the champions on Sunday.
Premier League leaders United maintained a three-point advantage over their Anfield hosts after an uneventful encounter, as they stretched their unbeaten away league run to 16 matches.
Liverpool had 66 per cent of the possession and 17 shots to United’s eight, but they rarely had visiting goalkeeper David de Gea troubled.
Indeed, United had the best two chances in the second half, with Alisson saving from Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba to preserve the Reds’ unbeaten home record in the top flight which has now reached 68 games.
Solskjaer thought his side did not show enough composure in possession and was disappointed they did not do more to test a makeshift centre-back pairing of Fabinho and Jordan Henderson.
Asked if United deserved to win, Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “No, we didn’t, because I don’t think we played well enough. We didn’t impose ourselves on the game, especially first half.
“I think we grew into the game and at the end, you felt ‘yeah, it’s here for us to win’. We created two massive chances and two brilliant saves by the keeper.
“We can play better than this – we know that. We can be more composed, have the ball more.
