Manchester United vs. Liverpool score: Reds earn draw, but Premier League winning streak snapped

Liverpool is six points ahead of Manchester City with this result

Liverpool's 17-game Premier League winning streak is over, but the Reds' unbeaten streak to the season is still alive. Adam Lallana came off the bench late and scored from close range to rescue a point for Liverpool at Old Trafford in a 1-1 draw against struggling Manchester United on Sunday. It was Lallana's first goal in two-and-a-half years as he's battled countless injuries. The Reds were without the injured Mohamed Salah due to an ankle injury, and he was missed as they had only four shots on goal but got a decent result in the end, all things considered. 

Liverpool had a goal disallowed due to a handball from Sadio Mane in the first half but got Lallana to finish a perfect ball by Andy Robertson in the 85th minute to stay unbeaten as United's defense fell asleep. After the match, speaking to Sky Sports, Lallana said coach Jurgen Klopp just told him to come on and make an impact, and that's just what he did. 

Here's his goal:

United has gone 11 games without scoring multiple goals but took the lead in this one through Marcus Rashford. He finished off a Daniel James ball 36 minutes in. The Red Devils had only two shots on goal in the game though, missing the creativity that Paul Pogba (foot injury) can provide while getting solid display from Andreas Pereira and Fred. 

The draw doesn't do much of anything for United though, as the team is just two points above relegation. Liverpool's result sees the team's lead go from eight points to six over Manchester City, but it's still a healthy advantage ahead of Matchday 10.

In the end, Liverpool will take it all things considered. Not a bad point for United, but they are still bottom half of the table and searching for answers. Two shots on goal won't cut it.

92' Nearly for Liverpool! Oxlade-Chamberlain goes just wide atop the box with a low effort. Had De Gea beaten.

Time running out for the Reds. Klopp yelling from the side. Looks like he is asking for more shots, more dangerous balls low into the box.

Lallana on, Henderson off.

67' Fantastic from United. The switch fields to Rashford, who makes a run at goal and fires with pace, but it goes JUST wide.

64' Just after Ox comes in, he gets a chance. Takes a powerful shot at the top of the box, but there were too many players in front of him blocking the goal, and it goes well wide.

Daniel James looked like he got rocked by Fabinho. Possible concussion? Being checked by the United staff.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is coming on for Liverpool.

Liverpool getting deeper and trying to create a golden chance. Been strange to see how little the attack has created. Maybe a change to mix things up?
