Solskjaer priases McTominay and Shaw after Liverpool draw

Manchester United's Paul Pogba controls the ball in front of Liverpool defender Joel Matip

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic will be sidelined for two weeks after being ruled out of Sunday's clash against Liverpool.

Liverpool need at least a point to stay ahead of Manchester City, and a loss will mean they'll remain second as City's goal difference is too big. It was an intense situation.

Liverpool's supporters struck a different tone, however, as they left the home of their old rivals chanting a reminder of their league position as they focus on the chance to win their first top flight title since 1990.

"Or do they get on that coach thinking "we didn't have enough authority, we didn't have enough belief"?"

The United caretaker boss, unbeaten in the Premier League since taking over from the sacked Jose Mourinho in December, said he was delighted with the way his depleted side coped against the league leaders in the second half.

Liverpool have gone with the usual front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah.

Klopp conceded Liverpool had lacked composure at critical moments and he called on them to bounce back against Watford in midweek. I always take what I get from the boys. "That's OK", Klopp said. "I think we started really, really well".

"If he plays for United for the next five years no one will be happier than me and [Nemanja Vidic] but issues will emanate again. Now Wednesday is our next game".

"Of course we expect more from ourselves to play better football but we'll take a point, it's one more than people probably expected".

Jurgen Klopp saw Liverpool draw 0-0 with Manchester United but felt that his team would, and should, have won the match, if it weren't for the four first half injuries.

Lingard, who had been nursing an injured hamstring, would only last only 18 minutes before coming off three minutes before the interval with what appeared to be a recurrence of the problem.

"When we were in Dubai, we were having a bit of banter when the manager was speaking to me, Anthony [Martial] and Jesse [Lingard], and I just mentioned his goal in the Champions League final", he added. It seemed like it was going to be a tough afternoon.

In what was an expected adjustment, David de Gea returns between the sticks for Manchester United, replacing Sergio Romero.
