Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea was instrumental to United gaining one point on the road this matchday after stopping Hakim Ziyech from finding the back of the net early in the second half.

Edouard Mendy on the other hand was also able to keep Scott McTominay's superb effort from crossing his goalline shortly after.

At the end of the game, the two sides settled for a goalless draw and this is becoming a regular score line among top teams these days.

This was the fifth time the Red Devils are settling for a similar scoreline against top teams, including each of their last four.

They will have to be more clinical when they go to Manchester City next Sunday, after their midweek trip to Crystal Palace, if they're to keep their faint title hopes alive.
