Man Utd vs Liverpool LIVE: Latest results and Premier League goals updates as Cristiano Ronaldo is out

Takeover talks mount at Manchester United as Glazers face increased pressure from fans

Manchester United meet Liverpool in the Premier League tonight but action on the pitch seems to play second fiddle to more drama off the pitch at Old Trafford.

Anger among supporters over the Glazer family’s property is growing by the day and underground fan group The 1958 organized a protest ahead of tonight’s game. Starting at 7pm they will march from The Tollgate to The Trinity to demonstrate their dissatisfaction with the Glazers and demand that the Americans sell.

Ahead of tonight’s game, Sky Sports broadcast an exclusive interview with Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag, conducted by Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher, who described the Dutchman following the club’s dismal start to the campaign, which saw them downgraded in defeats, put Brighton and Brentford to the test. And the manager made a big decision tonight by benching captain Harry Maguire and superstar striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

Before getting active in the game itself, follow all the pre-game preparations and updates below:


Kick-off: Manchester United 0-0 Liverpool

Liverpool get the game underway, sending the ball to the left side of the field where it can be easily cleared by the United defence. The visitors play the ball back to Alisson, who shoves it across the field to Mo Salah.

Salah tries to get it under control and is brought down by Lisandro Martinez.


Man Utd vs Liverpool

Bruno Fernandes leads the home team, with Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo both on the bench. Jordan Henderson returns to captain Liverpool.

The first goal tonight could be decisive. If Liverpool score early, the wheels could come off quickly for Man Utd.


A worrying sign?

Since Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Manchester United, the club have won more games with him than with him on the bench.

Is the fact that he comes on tonight a worrying sign for Erik ten Hag’s side?


More from Ten Hag

Erik ten Hag’s thoughts before the game also went to new signing Casemiro, who joins the club from Real Madrid. Ten Hag says he is very happy with the midfielder and also addressed some of the decisions he made tonight.

“He [Casemiro] is the cement between the stones, that’s what we looked for and found in the summer. Very happy with his signing.” said the United boss,

“We have a squad, we have a lot of games to cover and it was best to make those changes for that game.

“Varane is a very experienced player, has won everything and will bring communication to the back four. We want mobility and agility in the back four.


Fabinho hopes Liverpool continue to put pressure on Manchester United and Erik ten Hag

Liverpool had five good goals and one of their players pushed them forward, demanding more and looking for the kind of goal line that could really humiliate a beleaguered Manchester United side already down to 10 men.

Admittedly, it was difficult for them to follow or even hear his instructions because Fabinho wasn’t barking them from his usual lower midfield position. Perhaps United should be relieved that he was injured, sitting at home yelling at the TV.

“I wanted the team to attack more to try to score more goals because we had one player more,” said Fabinho. “But it was the moment when the team tried to control more of the game and stabilize the ball. As a fan I wanted the team to score more goals because it was a great opportunity to score a historic goal at Old Trafford but of course the 5-0 wasn’t bad.”

Not bad, in his judgement, was still historic, Liverpool’s biggest-ever winning margin at United.


Ten Hag explains the decision to drop Ronaldo

Erik ten Hag made the decision to start Cristiano Ronaldo off the bench tonight, explaining his reasoning by saying: “We know Liverpool are a really good side and you have to put pressure on them. You have to do that with a block and it takes energy, so we went for Rashford, Sancho, Elanga

“I know this is the biggest game in Britain and I’m delighted to be at the game.”



Alisson moves into the top 10 with Liverpool

Alisson Becker’s start tonight will put him in Liverpool’s top 10 goalkeeper list of all time.


protests in full swing

The group’s 1958 protest is in full swing with their march to the stadium. They are loud and try to get their opinion on the ownership of the club.

Unlike the protests during lockdown two years ago, this one is not targeting players or in any way interfering with the start of the game.
