Liverpool manager defends Man United player ahead of big EPL clash

Manchester United en Liverpool go head-to-head at Old Trafford this afternoon in the latest chapter from arguably the biggest rivalry in the English game – if not world football.

Liverpool enter the fixture in third place in the Premier League, knowing a win here would bring them to within a point of leaders Chelsea. Last time out, Jurgen Klopp’s side edged Atletico Madrid 3-2 in an exciting Champions League group-stage meeting, in which Mohamed Salah was the star yet again. The forward netted a stunning solo goal against Man City earlier this month before repeating the trick in last weekend’s 5-0 thrashing of Watford, following those strikes with a brace against Atletico.

Verenigde, intussen, were also 3-2 winners in the Champions League in their most recent outing – a late Cristiano Ronaldo header sealing a stunning comeback win against visitors Atalanta. Prior to that game, criticism of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer began to mount following a 4-2 loss at Leicester in the Premier League, a result that extended the Red Devils’ winless run in the division to three matches. Will seventh-placed United end that streak here? Can Solskjaer prove his quality against a rampant Liverpool and revered Klopp? Find out by following live updates from Man United vs Liverpool below, leef.


Man Utd 0 – 3 Liverpool

44 min: Ronaldo’s lost his head. Greenwood slips the ball into the box and he has a shot stopped by Alisson. The rebound comes out to Curtis Jones who is pressed by Ronaldo. Ronaldo knocks him down and the ball gets stuck under the Liverpool midfielder. Ronaldo kicks it into Jones who’s sprawled on the floor and draws the ire of the Liverpool players. There’s a bit of argy bargy and Ronaldo gets booked.

GOAL! Man Utd 0 – 3 Liverpool (Salah, 38’)⚽️

38 min: There’s so much space around Man Utd’s box. It’s simple for Liverpool. That man Mo Salah has done it again! Jota sets him up on the edge of the box but his first shot is blocked by Harry Maguire. All four of United’s defenders cluster in front of goal leaving Keita to drift into the right side of the box. The rebound comes out to him and he slots it into the six-yard area where Salah runs past the defence and guides it into the back of the net!

24 min: James Milner goes down with what looks like a pulled muscle and he can’t continue. He signals to the bench and Jurgen Klopp makes a change. On comes Curtis Jones.

Man Utd 0 – 2 Liverpool

21 min: Chance! Manchester United do well to pass the ball around the front edge of the Liverpool box. Liverpool drop deeper to cut off any gaps into the box and McTominay sends a pass out to Shaw on the left side. He carries it just inside the area and lets fly with a decent attempt across goal. Alisson dives for it but the shot is already past him and goes inches wide of the back post.
