Manchester United vs Liverpool: Match preview

Manchester United placed one foot in the Europa League Final on Thursday with a 6-2 win over Roma.

United looked set for a tough evening after going 2-1 down, however, Solskjaer’s quickly turned it around.

Braces from both Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandes, along with goals from Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood helped them on their way to securing a very healthy advantage.

In the league, United’s focus is now on securing second spot with City clinching the Premier League title on Saturday with a win at Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils currently lead Leicester City by four points and a game in hand.
