Manchester United v Liverpool Live Commentary & Result, 02/05/2021, Premier League

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes just two changes to the side which beat Roma on Thursday in the Europa League as Henderson returns to goal and Greenwood is also brought in.

Phillips went fit at the start, Milner also entering and Jota and Wijnaldum are named as substitutes.

Following Manchester City’s victory yesterday, the title could be closed for them if United lose here today. But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions (W6 D1) and have not lost any of their previous 13 Premier League games. Liverpool are still fighting for a top-four spot and are unbeaten in their last five league outings (W3 D2), but they have drawn in their last three games in all competitions.

This match was supposed to start in half an hour, but was postponed due to fans showing up on the pitch to protest against club owners on the back of European Super League proposals a few weeks ago. The teams have yet to make it to the stadium and it is not yet clear when the game will actually take place.
