The Whites shone as they put in an assured defensive display that allowed them to take a point from their bitter rivals and continue their hunt for a top half finish.

In particular, midfielder Kalvin Phillips caught the eye with his committed man-marking job on Bruno Fernandes – much to the delight of Sky Sports pundit Stephen Warnock.

The ex-defender said: “I wonder if Bruno Fernandes has woke up this morning and Kalvin Phillips is in his bed, because he literally followed him everywhere.

"It was ridiculous.

"Stop him playing and you stop Manchester United’s main supplier.

"Early on in the game, he [Phillips] goes tight, he was in and around him straight away. He’s strong in the tackle and he's aggressive. He’s such a powerful player.

"The one time Bruno Fernandes loses him, most players in that position would switch off and think ‘my centre-half is going to help me out’ – but it’s a great recovery run from Kalvin Phillips.

"He just didn’t give him a moment’s peace. The pair were joined at the hip throughout the whole game. It was an outstanding display from Kalvin Phillips.

"Again, it just shows why he’s so highly thought of by Marcelo Bielsa, by Gareth Southgate. He’s another one who’s pushing for a starting berth at the Euros for England as well.”
