Much of the battle was contested in midfield where the likes of Michael Carrick and Tom Cleverley came to the fore. Behind them, the experience of central defensive duo Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand - reunited when the latter came on for Rafael at half-time - helped the Reds to stand firm and claim a hard-fought point.
Despite the dearth of goals, the photographers covering the match - including the club's own John Peters and Matt Peters - still had plenty to capture. The most memorable moments in the game included a stunning late save by Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny when former Gunners striker Robin van Persie threatened to score with a late header.
