Man Utd peg back Liverpool U21 for draw

Manchester United pegged back Liverpool U21s yesterday to draw 1-1.

A stunning early goal from Jonjo Shelvey looked to have handed the Reds a firm grip on the game before Stephen Sama's dismissal saw the nature of play reverse.

United fortuitously levelled the scoring when substitute James Wilson's side-footed attempt was deflected into Liverpool's net by Jon Flanagan.

The result ensures that United finish above Liverpool in the Barclays U21 Premier League, with the sides second and third respectively. The two sides will now battle in the semi-final of the play-off stage at Old Trafford.
