Mainoo ‘disappointed’ as Man United draw with Liverpool

Kobbie Mainoo said Manchester United were disappointed not to take all three points after a 2-2 draw with Liverpool.

Just weeks after the FA Cup quarter-final classic between the teams, Manchester United and Liverpool played out another enthralling encounter at Old Trafford.


Liverpool dominated the opening exchanges and took the lead through Luis Diaz, with the home side struggling to get into the game and failing to register a single shot on goal in the first 45 minutes.

Bruno Fernandes equalised with a spectacular strike from distance after a mistake from Jarell Quansah, before Mainoo fired Manchester United ahead for the first time with a wonderful finish arced into the top corner.

The teenager admitted his first Old Trafford goal was ‘unbelievable feeling’ but said the overriding feeling in the dressing room is disappointment, after United conceded a late penalty for Mohamed Salah to equalise.

“Disappointed to be honest. I think we performed really well in the second half,” Mainoo reflected to Sky Sports.

“The lads made minor mistakes and if we iron them out then we win the game. It’s an unbelievable feeling to score my first Old Trafford goal and to do it in this fixture was even more special. We didn’t get the three points and that’s the main thing.

“Mistakes happen in games and they can be detrimental. It’s tough and it takes it out of you.”


Asked for his view on Luis Diaz’s opener for Liverpool from a set-piece, Mainoo added: “Again, details that we’ve missed. I have my own jobs in the team but the flick on got to him in space.”
