Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took a cheeky dig at rivals Liverpool ahead of Sunday's clash at Old Trafford by warning Manchester United can not be allowed to go as long without winning a league title.

Rashford's ankle "ballooned" early on in United's 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Sunday and he was set to be replaced, but, with three of his team-mates coming off injured in the first half, he was forced to stay on. "Three hamstrings in the first half?"

In addition, striker Marcus Rashford suffered an injury to his left foot in the opening stages of the match but had to play on for the whole game.

Liverpool looked to turn things up after the break, but United's defence provided an excellent platform.

"Honestly, I don't care too much because at the end of the day I am trying to help the team win games and I am still top scorer in the Premier League so I'm happy about that".

The interim manager made it clear that Liverpool fans are used to having their hopes dashed: "I have loads of Liverpool fans back home and every year is going to be their year". 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.

Apparently the de facto deputy PM David Lidington and the chancellor Philip Hammond seemed warmer to this idea than the PM. A tweet from the Independent Group welcomed the new members, adding: "Both our parties are broken".

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.

'City had that big week where points could be dropped.

"We might feel like we won a point or lost two".

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

The game began with a odd situation, as a mixup between David de Gea and Ashley Young gave Liverpool an indirect free-kick in the penalty area, but Milner and Jordan Henderson wasted the opportunity.
