For those of you who saw Arsenal's winner against Chelsea yesterday, the Liverpool keeper gets a touch of the 'Jorginhos'. His awful pass is intercepted by Edinson Cavani but he never really gets a chance to get his balance in front of goal and can only steer a finish wide from the edge of the box. 20:19 Manchester United 0-0 Liverpool 3min: Good start from Liverpool. A through ball puts Roberto Firmino in on goal, with the Brazilian attempting a low strike across goal.

Here are some problem areas the likes of United and Liverpool should be considering ahead of next season. How the chasing pack can dethrone Premier League winners Man City Looking ahead to next season, what can the chasing pack of Manchester United, Leicester, Chelsea and dethroned league winners Liverpool do to challenge City? Mail Online 19:45 Berbatov: United are making too many changes Now many of us loved Dimitar Berbatov as a player - how could you not given his outragous technical ability with a football and the casual demneanour he would cut while showing it.

Manchester United were beaten 2-1 by Leicester City on Tuesday evening 19:32 Protests are very much up and running outside Old Trafford There's wasn't a peep out of United supporters on Tuesday night - they were waiting for the big one.

This time around though the stadium remains under lock and key and thankfully there doesn't look to be any sign of clashes with the police just yet. 19:24 It's another TEN changes for Manchester United in their busy week Only Eric Bailly starts from the team beaten 2-1 at home by Leicester City just two days ago, otherwise it is the same side that finished Sunday's 3-1 victory over Aston Villa, with the exception that Bruno Fernandes, who started at Villa Park, is in the side at Nemanja Matic's expense.
