Man United boss Solskjaer invites Ferguson to give team talk against Liverpool

Man United boss Solskjaer invites Ferguson to give team talk against Liverpool”

"It's a rivalry that demands attention, but this is Manchester United's opportunity to put a dent in Liverpool's Premier League title aspirations so I'm expecting a very special game".

But the biggest surprise for Sunday's game is that Scott McTominay starts in the three-man midfield for Manchester United, replacing Serbian powerhouse Nemanja Matic, who does not even make it to the matchday squad.

The point takes Liverpool one point clear of Manchester City at the top of the table.

Liverpool had an opening in the first couple of minutes, David De Gea getting a hand to Ashley Young's backpass under pressure from Roberto Firmino to give away an indirect free kick, but James Milner's shot was blocked. We need to know if he is in it for the long-term'. "I'm expecting a similar response that led Manchester United to win at the Etihad last season". "There have been many comments that this is the big one".

United have not lost a league game since Liverpool beat them at Anfield in December and De Gea is desperate for his side to triumph on Sunday.

Solskjaer has been nothing short of a revelation since taking over as caretaker manager from Jose Mourinho just before Christmas, winning 11 of his 13 games in all competitions. "If they do that, they will win the match", he said.

Manchester United legend Eric Cantona reckons Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been so successful so far during his tenure as Red Devils boss because he understands the 'soul, ' of the club.

"The stats show that United are running more than they were previously, putting in the hard yards for the new manager in terms of closing down and sprinting back, all the stuff that they weren't doing for Mourinho".

"They have got a good side with some good players individually".
