Manchester United vs Liverpool, Before the Premier League Manchester United welcomed champions Liverpool who had just been demoted to Old Trafford for a match rearranged on Thursday.
The Red Devils' 2-1 defeat to Leicester City on Thursday night confirmed what had been the previous conclusion over the last few months, as City were crowned champions while Man United now play for second place.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are still considered the outsiders for a place in the Champions League, but a 2-0 win over Southampton at the weekend at least increases their chances of finishing in the top four.
The impact of the European Super League catastrophe literally spilled onto the pitch ahead of Man United's proposed meeting with Liverpool, when Red Devils supporters gathered in crowds to protest against the Glazer family both inside and outside Old Trafford last weekend.
The demonstrations against the American-led regime sparked mixed reactions from all angles of the game, with some condemning support for violence and a police officer requiring emergency care, while others echoing the views of supporters angered at the way in which the club has run under the Glazers.
As such, Man United players are unable to travel safely to the stadium from their hotel and must now prepare for a third match within five days of the original schedule postponement, and Solskjaer understandably made a lot of changes for Tuesday's visit. from Leicester.

Future stars Amad Diallo and Anthony Elanga both enjoyed their first Premier League appearances wide, and the first to claim the assist for fellow teenager Mason Greenwood's goal of the night, but it wasn't for the second string. United XI.
Leicester initially drew their first blood of the night with a lavish volley from Luke Thomas - another teenager who is expected to have a bright future after a spectacular Premier League first - and the Foxes dominated the second half despite being pegged back by Greenwood's equalizer, as Caglar Soyuncu climbed high. to head the ball from a corner in the 66th minute.
The defeat to an almost full-blown Foxes side makes it impossible for Man United to snatch their local rivals at the top of the table, as the Red Devils are 10 points behind the champions with only nine left to play, so securing second place is all that Solskjaer can ask for before the League final. Europa takes precedence.
Tuesday's defeat to Leicester ended a streak of five-game wins in all competitions at Old Trafford for Man United, which also saw their 14-match unbeaten top-flight streak come to an end, but as Solskjaer alluded to, the busy schedule means he just has to make a change. double figures for Leicester's visit.
However, a strong end to the campaign must come, as the Red Devils face Fulham and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the last two Premier League games of the season, and Solskjaer's men will then aim to sink the Yellow Submarine at Villarreal as Solskjaer's eye. the elusive first trophy in Gdansk on May 26.
Liverpool have rediscovered their golden touch at just the right time before they prepare for another trip to their nemesis, but their hopes of securing a top-four finish and another Champions League assignment rests on their rivals who have slipped in recent weeks. .
After heartbreak at giving up Real Madrid's lead on the European stage, Liverpool appear to have broken their foreign habit of losing Premier League matches, as Jurgen Klopp's side travel to Old Trafford in a six-game unbeaten run in the premier league.
A shock home defeat to now relegated Fulham on March 7 represented the last time the Reds failed to take at least a point from a Premier League match, but it was too late as they prepared to watch Manchester City lift to victory. trophy this time.
On another day, Southampton may make their trip to Anfield worthwhile, but goals from one of the halves from Sadio Mane and Thiago Alcantara - the first of the last goals in a Liverpool shirt - propelled the Reds to a 2-0 win on their Saturday night. keep their slim hopes in the Champions League alive.
It is unlikely for the Reds who are sixth in line to return to the top four in Manchester, but West Ham United's slight dip means that fifth place is very close, but a place in the Europa League is not what staunch Anfield supporters want. amidst dramatic campaigns on and off the pitch.
The friendlies with West Bromwich Albion, Burnley and Crystal Palace were a superb opportunity for Klopp's side to finish the campaign brilliantly, and after taking 14 points from the last 18 games on offer, the wind was blowing hard on Liverpool's sails.
A 1-1 draw at Elland Road on the eve of the disastrous European Super League prevented Liverpool from registering a quartet of away wins - with Sheffield United, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal losing goalless against Liverpool - and the Reds traveling to Old Trafford losing just two of 14. their last match in a top-flight competition.
There may not be a better time for Liverpool to overcome their adversaries at Old Trafford as Man United juggle one of the busiest periods of their season, and while Man United and Liverpool fans usually never meet in person, Anfield staunch supporters probably did. understand the motivations for last week's protests as they seek answers from their own executives.
Manchester United have confirmed Harry Maguire suffered ligament damage to his ankle when he was forced off against Aston Villa, and the center-back will return to the Europa League final later this month.
The former Leicester player was joined in the treatment room by Daniel James, Phil Jones and Anthony Martial, but the latter is making good progress in his recovery from a knee problem and can return before the season ends.
Solskjaer has opted to make 10 changes for Leicester's visit so will welcome back most of his big hitters here, starting with Dean Henderson returning to replace David de Gea in goal.
The midfield trio must therefore remain unchanged, meaning that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - soon to become a father - will be restricted to outings for other substitutes.
Roberto Firmino is eyeing a place on the front line of attack on Diogo Jota, and Mane - who according to his own admission has had the "worst season" of his career - will be eyeing double digits for the Premier League campaign here.

🔺 Predictions for the composition of Manchester United vs Liverpool players:

⭕ Manchester United: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Bailly, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Rashford, Fernandes, Pogba; Cavani

⭕ Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Williams, Robertson; Fabinho, Thiago, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
