Solskjaer: Man United must avoid a title drought like Liverpool's

Solskjaer: Man United must avoid a title drought like Liverpool's

In a game of high tempo but few chances and only three shots on target, neither side could find the sort of quality in their final pass that might have proved decisive. Enjoy the Live match commentary and goals as they go in!

Interesting half-time! Matt Critchley has more for us! . On the other hand, defeat for Man United would see the Red Devils vulnerable to falling back down as far as sixth.

With 15 minutes gone, Joel Matip set off on a run inside the United half and was brought down on the edge of the area, but Salah curled a wayward free kick well over. That's the same every year but this feels even bigger because Liverpool are going for the title with City.

Matic has looked rusty in recent games, but since we don't have an adequate replacement, he'll likely start alongside them.

Despite playing out a 0-0 draw against Bayern Munich at Anfield in the Champions League in midweek, when less-expansive tactics than usual were influenced by the absence of Virgil Van Dijk in defence, Liverpool have not failed to score in any domestic league games this season, including in trips to the Emirates, the Etihad, Wembley and Stamford Bridge, which should mean De Gea is picking the ball out of his net at least once in this match. James Milner comes in at right-back replace Alexander-Arnold.


Solskjaer is yet to play Sanchez for the full 90 minutes, and Solskjaer's reluctance to play Sanchez following the first two injuries forced United fans to go on social media and point out the fact that Sanchez is not in Solskjaer's plans. I think it's time for the team news!

So here we are, this feels like a game that could determine the destination of the Premier League season. What is going to give?

Liverpool are now level on points with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table and the club bid to win their first league title in 29 years, but speaking as quoted by Metro, Sky Sports pundit Neville claimed that he feels that Klopp needs to remain calm if Liverpool are to win the league this season.

If Liverpool win they'll go three points clear of City with just 11 games of the season to go and their most hard game on paper, against Spurs, at home. As for Liverpool, they will be well aware that only a victory is good enough to keep the pressure on Manchester City.
