PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Manchester United lost 4-2 to Liverpool in the Premier League on Thursday night. Although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer heavily rotated his squad for Tuesday's clash against Leicester, United couldn't secure a positive result against their rivals despite taking the lead thanks to Bruno Fernandes' goal early in the first half. The visitors didn't take long to equalise and they completed the turnaround before the break when Roberto Firmino rose tallest to head past Dean Henderson from a Liverpool free-kick, with United conceding from yet another set-piece. Their lead was quickly doubled in the second half after haphazard defending and a series of errors at the back for United, Henderson only able to deflect Trent Alexander-Arnold's effort into the path of Firmino for an easy finish. While United clawed one back through Marcus Rashford, the game was settled when Mohamed Salah scored Liverpool's fourth late on.

Maguire and Fletcher respond to penalty decision With Harry Maguire sidelined with an injury he sustained against Aston Villa, Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly played in the centre of defence, but both delivered forgettable performances, vindicating Solskjaer's summer plans to sign a new centre-back. Their shortcomings were ruthlessly exposed by Liverpool and, quite simply, Maguire's presence at the back was sorely missed, although that didn't stop the United captain from constantly shouting support from the sidelines throughout the game. Maguire and United's new technical director Darren Fletcher protested in unison against the first-half decision to award Liverpool a penalty following a challenge by Eric Bailly. The decision was overturned, of course, but it wasn't enough to help United avoid defeat as they went on to concede four goals.

. The Reds' top goalscorer this season made his 50th Premier League appearance against Liverpool and his strike was his 44th direct goal involvement across that period. Notably, Fernandes now has 26 goals and 18 assists across 50 appearances in the league, and only Cantona (46) and Van Persie (45) have been involved in more in their first 50 for the club in the competition.

The players were stuck in The Lowry Hotel earlier this month and Solskjaer was keen for their pre-match routine to stay the same amid any further protests against the Glazers, and arriving at Old Trafford early intended to mitigate any risk of another postponement. "So, no effect arriving at the stadium earlier than usual?" Fernandes asked by Sky Sports. He replied: "I hope not, we will see." We did see. United break unwanted club record in the Premier League era No, the pitch wasn't breached by supporters to protest against the Glazers' ownership, but instead Liverpool scored four goals against Solskjaer 's side and United's inability to defend at set-pieces was exploited once again by the opposition. United have now conceded 27 home goals in the Premier League this season, which is their most in a single league campaign since 1969-70 (27) when Wilf McGuinness finished in eighth in the first division with the club.
