United shot-less in the first half

man u vs liverpool Manchester United have attempted 0 shots in the first half of a home Premier League game for the first time since October 2015, vs Manchester City.

Their expected goals (xG) total, unsurprisingly, is therefore 0.00.

They’ve faced 15 shots from Liverpool.

Why do they face so many shots? Check out Carl Anka’s piece on that topic below.

Liverpool targeting left flank

Liverpool had some joy down their left-hand side in the first half. Of their attacking touches, 38 per cent came down that flank — the biggest share across the thirds.

Nearly 2-0 just before the break

In the moments before the interval, Liverpool had two big chances to extend their lead.

Darwin Nunez played a nice one-two with Andy Robertson and forced a fine save from Onana but he was narrowly offside.

Then Szoboszlai could have shot, laid it off to Conor Bradley, who let fly… but it was brilliantly blocked by Wan-Bissaka.

United haven’t taken a single shot

Manchester United attempted zero shots in that first half.

It’s the first time they’ve failed to have a shot in the first half of a home Premier League game since October 2015 against Manchester City.

HT: Manchester United 0-1 Liverpool

That’s half-time! Erik ten Hag needs to seriously reset his team for the second half, that was a complete battering.
