Solskjaer says Man Utd will attack Liverpool from the off

Nemanja Vidic

Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has credited Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa for the development of Ander Herrera.

Among many moments of heroic defending, United fans will remember Vidic for scoring the victor against Liverpool in the 22nd round of the 2012/13 English Premier League, which saw them widen the gap between them at the top and 8th placed Liverpool to 24 points as the Red Devils went on to win the league title.

England forward Jesse Lingard replaced Mata but had to be removed himself just 16 minutes after coming on with a hamstring problem.

"Man United have to match the energy and aggression of the Liverpool players".

Mo Salah is already the proud owner of the most goals scored in a 38-game Premier League season, a remarkable record he set in his first season at Liverpool after bagging an astonishing 32 top-flight goals.

Jesse Lingard had to go off after going down from a great Alisson save, with Sanchez replacing him.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is wary of a much-improved Manchester United as the Reds look to return to the top of the Premier League table.

What does it mean?

On the string of injuries that interrupted the opening 45 minutes, Manchester United legend Gary Neville said: 'This is very unusual.

And Henderson knows Liverpool - who can move three points clear of Manchester City at the summit - will be facing a different beast at Old Trafford. By having Mata drop into midfield during defensive phases this also means United have extra bodies in central midfield, something which helps force Liverpool to play wide rather than through the middle.

The first half ended goalless with Premier League title challengers Liverpool unable to turn their possession into a lead.
