Manchester United v Liverpool: match preview


The equivalent fixture was postponed on 2 May due to the unrest from disgruntled Manchester United fans who broke into the stadium in protest at the Glazer family’s ownership. When it was finally staged 11 days later Liverpool won 4-2 and another loss for Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side on Sunday would leave them seven points behind their rivals and surely out of the title race before the clocks go back for winter.
