Manchester United vs Liverpool LIVE: Latest score, goals and updates from FA Cup tie today


Liverpool‘s unforgettable 2020

The pressure is firmly on Liverpool, though, who are mired in an uncharacteristic slump and slipped to a dire 1-0 defeat by Burnley earlier this week. The club’s refusal to sign a new centre-back is beginning to severely hinder their attacking prowess, with the champions failing to score in any of their last four league games. That run of results has left the Reds six points adrift of United in the title race and questions are starting to be raised over how Jurgen Klopp can rejuvenate his side’s fortunes. Victory today would surely provide a perfect jolt and a date with West Ham awaits the winner. Follow all the action live below:
