The chances started to come: first Joel Matip fed Emre Can, who held off two markers to test David de Gea from close range. Phillippe Couninho unleashed a 30-yard howitzer that drew another top stop from the Spaniard.Inside the final 10 minutes, Roberto Firmino was sent sprinting into the penalty area and looked set to score until Antonio Valencia denied the Brazilian with an inch-perfect slide tackle almost from behind.United (4-2-2) also had their chances in the far more open second period. Zlatan Ibrahimovic inexplicably headed Paul Pogbas curling ball back across goal at the back post and Marouane Fellaini got his head to a Daley Blind corner but couldnt steer his effort on target.By the end, the visitors were employing every time-wasting tactic in the book, with Jose Mourinho urging them on from the sidelines. They achieved their mission with a shutout of the usually prolific Reds. Cheap Rays Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .
