How Liverpool Failed In EPL Record Bid Against United




Premier League leaders Liverpool were not successful in their bid to set a new record for consecutive wins following their visit to arch rivals Manchester United.

Liverpool and Manchester United are the top two most successful teams on the English football scene and they met at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.

Premier League leaders Liverpool went into the Manchester United game on the back of 17 straight league wins dating back to the goalless draw at the home of Merseyside rivals Everton in March.

The Reds were bidding to match the Premier League record of 18 consecutive victories set by Manchester City two years ago.

A win for Liverpool over Manchester United at the weekend would have seen the Reds equal that winning record.

Manchester United were able to stop Liverpool from continuing that winning run in the Premier League after the two teams played out a 1-1 draw in a week nine encounter at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.

The Red Devils were well on their way to a big victory at the expense of visitors Liverpool until second half substitute Adam Lallana rescued a point for the away team.

England international star Marcus Rashford had earlier given Manchester United a first half lead before the late equaliser from Lallana.
