Manchester United and Liverpool played out to a 1-1 draw in a game filled with "emotion' as Utd manager Jose Mourinho described it.

Liverpool managed to grab an early goal in the 27th minute through a James Milner penalty, after Paul Pogba was penalized for handling the ball inside the box. However, with Mourinho's men pressing for an equalizer with Fellaini and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (pictured) leading the the pressure seemed insurmountable as Liverpool went on to concede a late goal in the 84 minute when Ibrahimovich headed the ball past Liverpool keeper Mignolet. Liverpool missed out on a chance to keep piling pressure on table leaders Chelsea, and the latter are now seven points clear of Tottenham (2nd) and Liverpool (3rd) who are tied on 45 points.

Elsewhere, Manchester City were humiliated by Everton 4-0 in a fixture dominated by Everton youngsters Holgate, Tom Davies and later on rookie Ademola Lookman- who came on in the dying minutes of the game and and grabbed the fourth goal for Everton. The loss now leaves Manchester City in the 5th position with a 10-point gap between them and table leaders Chelsea. City manager Pep Guardiola (above) admitted the gap would ultimately prove too big to cut in the race for the Premier League title.
