Man­chester Uni­ted 1 Liver­pool 1, Old Traf­ford, Eng­lish Foot­ball Lea­gue Fir­st Di­vi­sion, Feb­ruary 26, 1983. Sec­ond pla­ced Man­chester Uni­ted were held to a 1-1 draw by ta­ble-top­ping Liver­pool in a mat­ch they should have won. Neth­er­lands in­ter­na­tion­al Ar­nold Muh­ren put Uni­ted ahead five min­utes pa­st the ha­lf-hour ma­rk be­fore Ken­ny Dalg­lish lev­elled the score for The An­field­ers in the 39th minute.

Man­chester Uni­ted, who were mis­sing Bry­an Rob­son be­cause of an ankle lig­a­ment in­jury, al­most took the lead early in the ga­me when Ar­nold Muh­ren put Bru­ce Grob­be­laar to the test wi­th a free-kick that led to a mag­ni­fi­cent save by the Liver­pool goal­keeper. The Man­chester Reds fi­nally got them­selves ahead in the 35th min­ute of the en­counter as Muh­ren ham­mered ho­me from in­side the eight­een-yard area af­ter Grob­be­laar had failed to col­lect the ball, on­ly for Liver­pool to equal­ise four min­utes la­ter thro­ugh a clo­se ran­ge goal from the al­ways dan­ger­ous Ken­ny Dalg­lish, and wi­th no goals in the sec­ond ha­lf the score re­mained one-all. Man­chester Uni­ted Te­am: Ga­ry Bai­ley, Kev­in Mor­an, Mi­chael Dux­bury, Gor­don Mc­Queen, Ar­thur Al­bis­ton, Remi Moses, Ste­ve Cop­pell, Ar­nold Muh­ren, Frank Stapleton, Ray Wil­kins, Nor­man White­side.
