(Video) Lingard equalises against Liverpool after Alisson howler

Against the run of play, Manchester United have hit back.

Liverpool took the lead around the half hour mark through Sadio Mane, but Jesse Lingard found himself in the right place at the right time to equalise for United.

To be fair, the equaliser was totally underserved as United have been second best throughout the pitch.

As Gary Neville said on commentary after the goal, “Manchester United have been playing like a team needing a gift.”

But we’ll take it. Who wouldn’t?

What’s funny about the goal is Alisson’s mistake. This week you would have been led to believe he’s the greatest goalkeeper of all-time, but he commits a truly awful howler for this goal, palming the ball into Lingard’s path.

Romelu Lukaku’s driving cross from the left causing the Liverpool goalkeeper all sort of problems.

It’s currently 1-1 and United are ever so slightly growing in confidence in front of a crowd in disbelief.
