Manchester United vs Liverpool LIVE: Premier League latest score and match updates today

Liverpool coach defends Man United player ahead of big EPL clash

Manchester United and Liverpool face off at Old Trafford this afternoon in the final chapter of arguably the greatest rivalry in English football – if not world football.

Liverpool enter the game in third place in the Premier League, knowing that a win here would take them one point behind leaders Chelsea. Last time around, Jurgen Klopp’s side beat Atletico Madrid 3-2 in a thrilling Champions League group stage encounter, in which Mohamed Salah was once again the star. The forward scored a superb solo goal against Man City earlier this month before repeating the trick in Watford’s 5-0 defeat last weekend, after those strikes with a brace against Atletico .

United, meanwhile, also won 3-2 in the Champions League in their last outing – a late header from Cristiano Ronaldo sealing a superb comeback victory over visitors from Atalanta. Ahead of this game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s criticism began to pile up after a 4-2 loss to Leicester in the Premier League, a result which extended the Red Devils’ winless streak in the three-game division. United, seventh, will they end this streak here? Can Solskjaer prove his quality against an endemic Liverpool and revered Klopp? Find out by following the live updates from Man United vs Liverpool below, live.
