Merseyside Police have praised fans from both Liverpool and Manchester United after last night's game at Anfield.

The fixture has been the subject of offensive chants and violence in recent times, but fans were praised for their 'exemplary' behaviour before, during and after the game.

There is a great rivalry between our fans and it was pleasing to see supporters being respectful throughout a game watched in over 200 countries.

– Merseyside Police Match Commander Superintendent Paul White
