The United star was one of a number of casualties as Solskjaer was forced to use all three of his substitutes in the opening 42 minutes, the first time since 2015 that has happened in a Premier League game.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Manchester United played with "10-and-a-half" men after his injury-hit team held Liverpool to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Rashford was forced to stay on for 90 minutes as United used up all their substitutions in the first half.

Liverpool play Watford on Wednesday before the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park with just a point separating them and defending champions Manchester City.

Lingard - Mata's replacement despite being deemed not fit enough to start after a hamstring injury - then seemed to aggravate that problem when attempting to round Alisson for the only real chance of a weird first period, forcing Solskjaer to replace him with Alexis Sanchez.

Solskjaer's United take on Liverpool on Sunday night in a game that could have massive implications on the title race.

Skopje must adopt the new name "in the public discourse, in addition to all street signs and official documents", he added. In ancient times it was the cradle of Alexander the Great's empire, a source of intense pride for Greeks.


Liverpool looked to turn things up after the break, but United's defence provided an excellent platform.

Clearly recognising that he had upset Klopp, Henderson returned to the sideline seconds later and attempted to make amends but the German made his anger known.

"I have loads of Liverpool fans back home and it has been like every year is going to be their year".

It was a game of few chances at Old Trafford, with the league leaders frustrated by the hosts despite largely dominating with the ball.

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

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.
