Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson cut a frustrated figure after the Reds stuttered to a goalless draw with arch-rivals Manchester United.

Much was expected of the fiery Premier League fixture but Monday’s blockbuster failed to live up to the hype as United negated the attacking threat of Liverpool at Anfield.

In a game lacking clear-cut chances, United goalkeeper David de Gea produced two fine saves to deny Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho in the second half.

The forgettable stalemate brought an end to Liverpool’s four-game winning streak in the Premier League, much to the disappointment of Henderson.

“I think we’re a bit frustrated and a bit disappointed because we didn’t play to the level we’re capable of and set this season in the majority of games,” Henderson told Sky Sports.

“At times we were good but the rhythm wasn’t there in the final third, we didn’t create many clear-cut chances. We defended well and won the ball back, but we could have been more decisive in the final third

“Early on we didn’t start great, we grew into it as the half went on and dominated the ball more. We dominated in the second half again but didn’t create that chance. Phillipe’s [Coutinho] strike – I thought it was in top corner but it was a great save.

“I’m not sure if it was nervy but maybe we were trying to force it a little bit, it was a bit hectic at times. In terms of winning the ball back we had the right attitude. Man Utd are a great side, you’ve got to respect them. They came here and did a job.
