Manchester United went into the match against Liverpool looking to open up a six-point lead over their fierce rivals at the top of the table.
But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were unable to claim all three points, playing out a dull goalless draw on Sunday.
And Harry Maguire, speaking to United’s official website, has admitted players in the dressing room will be disappointed with settling just for a point.
“You could see our intent in the second half, we wanted to go on and get three points.
“I’m sure in the dressing room we will feel a bit disappointed not to come away with three points.
“But like I say, it’s a point at a difficult place to come, but we move on to get a result next week.”
Maguire thought both teams ‘smashed it’, adding: “It was cagey, but it was two good teams smashing it.
“We found it difficult in the first half to find a rhythm in the game. They pressed us high, we knew they were coming with a lot of intensity off the ball.
”We spoke about that at half time, we didn’t get the rhythm of the ball. It was 0-0 and we thought we could’ve done a lot better.
“The second half was a lot better, we created openings and, like I say, we have great good chances, but two great saves.”
