Alexis Mac Allister equals 2023/24 Premier League record during Man Utd draw

Not all of Liverpool's players were at their best against Manchester United on Sunday, but Alexis Mac Allister once again stood out among his teammates. 

The Reds were unable to make their dominance count at Old Trafford and came away with just a point following a 2-2 draw, left to regret some huge wasted opportunities and individual errors.

The result is undoubtedly a setback in Liverpool's bid for the Premier League title this season, with Jurgen Klopp's side now second to Arsenal on goal difference and only a point ahead of Manchester City.

There were a number of Liverpool stars who failed to shine in Manchester, but midfielder Mac Allister certainly wasn't one of them, with the Argentine continuing his mightily impressive recent form.

ALEXIS MAC ALLISTER'S BRILLIANT FORM CONTINUES

Liverpool's issues against Man Utd came in both boxes, with the Reds mostly dominating the centre of the pitch. That was largely thanks to another all-action display from Mac Allister.

The summer signing was nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month award for March and he has now produced five goals and three assists for club and country since the beginning of last month.

However, while his attacking flair has caught the eye, his defensive excellence has been notable.

In fact, according to WhoScored, Mac Allister won possession 11 times during the draw at Old Trafford on Sunday - the joint most of any player in the Premier League this season in a single match.

Mac Allister also produced a game-high 11 passes into the final third against Man Utd, as well as winning eight duels and making three tackles.

The 25-year-old has been unlocked by Wataru Endo in recent months and is now arguably Liverpool's most important player ahead of the run-in.

The World Cup winner is probably the signing of the season in the Premier League after arriving from Brighton for £35m, with Liverpool reliant on his brilliance in both halves from now until the end of the campaign.
