Everyone hated Liverpool and Manchester United's game of anti-football
Not even the tactical students of the game could have found this dross entertaining.
After a dull and dreary Super Sunday, Sky Sports’ Red Monday was sure to be a vast improvement. Liverpool, one of the brightest sides in the division thus far, took on the mighty Manchester United.
A home win would see the Merseyside team join Manchester City and Arsenal on 19 points at the top of the Premier League table.
The excitement was unbearable, the tension building, and the goals SURELY on their way.
It did not begin well.
There’s no way to spin this game. It was dire.
Watford’s 1-0 bore-fest on Sunday was beginning to look like a blockbuster in comparison.
Many people retweeted this post, as you can see.
Quite frankly, we all had better things to do.
Was Jose Mourinho to blame?
Almost certainly, yes.
Please… no analysis.
The sarcasm was real.
The only real entertainment came from a string of fine David De Gea saves. We wanted goals, however.
Hacker T Dog had the right idea.
Apology not accepted, ESPN.
We're so sorry. #LIVMUN

The game ended 0-0. Goalless. Two clean sheets were earned.
David Baddiel might be onto something here.
Nobody say a word about next Sunday’s Chelsea v Manchester United game. Please.
