Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s playful dig at Liverpool ahead of Manchester United clash

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United are defensively disciplined says Duncan Castles

Solskjaer suggested Rashford's injury was the result of being "kicked" by Liverpool's players after the winger appeared to be hurt following an early challenge from Jordan Henderson. "We take that. It is a point gained because we have one more than before but it doesn't feel like that", he said.

Both sides settled for the draw eventually, with the Reds going back to the top of the Premier League with a point, although their poor performance will draw questions about their composure.

Despite the injuries, Solskjaer is confident he will still be able to select a strong side to face Crystal Palace on Wednesday evening at Selhurst Park.

Manchester United staff gave special instructions to the ball boys at Old Trafford during Sundays injury-plagued 0-0 draw with Liverpool.

So despite the frustration at an opportunity missed after United lost Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and his replacement Jesse Lingard all to hamstring injuries in a first half in which Roberto Firmino also limped off with an ankle problem the title remains in Liverpool's hands. On days when United are beatable and you can beat them, then you have to do it.




Ole Gunnar Solskjaer questioned Liverpool's tactics towards Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford as the England global suffered an ankle injury that will sideline him for the visit to Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

Especially interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who will be looking to get one over his Liverpool-supporting friends back in Norway, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Herrera was the first to depart after going down with what looked to be a hamstring injury around the 20-minute mark.

"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. "We knew that first half wasn't good enough on the ball - I have never seen us be so sloppy on the ball, giving so many easy balls away". "I think we started really, really well".

Neither side impressed greatly in the opening stages of the second half, with Liverpool unable to string together any genuine openings in the final third as Sturridge and Salah struggled for fluency.
