Liverpool travel to rivals Manchester United in the Premier League tonight in desperate search of three points in order to keep their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League alive.
United’s defeat to Leicester on Tuesday has ensured Jurgen Klopp’s side have no room for any further slip-ups as they seek to claim an unlikely top-four spot. Victory would leave Liverpool six points adrift of Leicester with a game in hand, but with just three fixtures remaining this season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are facing a run of four matches in eight days and have had roughly 50 hours rest between their previous two fixtures against Leicester and Aston Villa on Sunday.
The fixture pile-up has occurred after this fixture was postponed due to fan protests outside Old Trafford less than two weeks ago.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match this evening.
When is it?
The match kicks off at 8:15pm GMT on Thursday 13 May.

Klopp’s side could face further frustration, however. Not much has gone to plan for them this season. Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool
