Erik ten Hag was proud of Manchester United’s tenacious performance in a hard-fought 0-0 draw at Anfield, where Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk said only one team tried to win.

On Sunday, as the fierce rivals squared off at Anfield, all eyes were on the hosts as they attempted to halt the rot while Jurgen Klopp’s team looked to return to the top of the Premier League.

Despite United goalkeeper Andre Onana‘s eight saves during Liverpool’s blistering 34 shots throughout the game, the hosts were unable to break through.

Captain Van Dijk expressed frustration after the tense match ended without a goal, saying United is “buzzing” to have gained a point.

“I think there was only one team that was trying to win the game; if you look at how we played the game, how we obviously had most of the ball and created some opportunities,” the center-back said to Sky Sports.

Sadly, it didn’t come to pass. That’s why it’s frustrating, since we naturally want to win every game, especially when we’re up against a team like theirs.

Ten Hag, the manager of United, dismissed the remark made by his fellow Dutchman, saying only that “it’s his opinion.”

The Red Devils manager said, “I will leave the judgement to you,” when asked about his thoughts on Diogo Dalot’s dismissal following two consecutive swift bookings for disobedience.
