Liverpool's Premier League title hopes suffered a blow on Sunday as they were held to a 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

The Reds were good value for a victory but could only watch on as United netted two stunning goals to snatch an unlikely point and put Arsenal back in control of the title race.

Here are Liverpool's best and worst players from the game according to 90min's player ratings.

Liverpool's best player vs Man Utd

Luis Diaz - 8/10

It was Luis Diaz who opened the scoring for Liverpool in a game which they really should have won.

The winger was electric down Liverpool's left side and can consider himself unfortunate to have only managed one goal contribution, having fired in a further five shots and created three more chances for those around him.

Honourable mention

Mohamed Salah - 7/10

You can always rely on Mohamed Salah to keep his nerve from the penalty spot. The Egyptian needed every ounce of his composure to fend off the raucous Old Trafford crowd, but Salah made his late equaliser look like light work.

Like Diaz, Salah also created three chances for his fellow forwards, doing all he could to try and drag Liverpool to victory.

Jarell Quansah - 5/10

Football at this level is ruthless and unforgiving, and young centre-back Jarell Quansah learned that the hard way at Old Trafford.

It was his poor pass to Virgil van Dijk which allowed Bruno Fernandes to snatch an equaliser out of thin air early in the second half. The 21-year-old cannot hide from his error but must now keep his head down and work hard to respond.

Dishonourable mention

Cody Gakpo - 5/10

Cody Gakpo finds himself in a difficult period right now. Fans are quick to scrutinise his performances and, unfortunately for the Dutchman, he didn't really help himself off the bench against United.

Gakpo was guilty of a handful of poor decisions and even found himself on the receiving end of a Cruyff Turn from Andre Onana which quickly went viral. A rough day at the office once again.
