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

25 February, 2019, 00:28 | Author: Lula Armstrong
  • Manchester United will have a 'good chunk of the country' behind them vs Liverpool- Castles

Multiple injuries to Herrera, Mata and Lingard forced Solskjaer into making three first half substitutions, on top of Matic and Martial missing the game through injury, made it very tough for United but we came through.

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.

"If I was Jurgen Klopp, in that dressing room at half-time, with Manchester United not being able to bring on another substitute, I'd be saying, 'right, first person, first opportunity, go and kick Rashford on the ankle that he's been limping on in the first half", Owen said.

"We have to make sure that we don't end up being happy being among the top four". Everything that could have gone wrong first half went wrong.

This means both Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford will both start up front while Juan Mata will play just behind the two strikers. I do think he's one of the areas United can look at on Sunday. For Liverpool, the point is enough to move them past Manchester City at the summit but it will be seen as a chance missed in the title race.


Since Division One became the Premier League the Reds, who were the most successful league side in England before the change, have only finished second three times.

That's the same every year but this feels even bigger because Liverpool are going for the title with City.

It would have been the flawless occasion for Salah to score his 50th Premier League goal for the Reds and become the fastest player to reach that milestone, but he endured a poor day, arguably one of his worst in a Liverpool shirt.

"We played with 10 and a half men", he added.

In what was an expected adjustment, David de Gea returns between the sticks for Manchester United, replacing Sergio Romero.
