Liverpool 0 Man United 0

Manchester United kept their place at the top of the Premier League after a 0-0 draw with Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

An encounter of few chances saw the Red Devils extend the champions’ scoreless run to three matches, their longest such streak in the top flight since March 2005, in what was Jurgen Klopp’s 200th league game in charge.

Alisson denied Paul Pogba from arguably the best of the opportunities as United’s winless league run against the Reds reached five matches for the first time since 2002.

Still, the result edged them two points clear of Leicester City and ensured Liverpool remain one further back.

After Seven Year Wait Man United Sit At Top Of Premier League

What is it that is said about title-winning teams? What they do, where they do it, and what the weather is like on that particular day of the week?

If it’s true, then it is time to take Manchester United seriously. This was a big result, hard-fought and hard-won against Burnley, the Premier League’s awkward squad. It is a victory that puts them top of the league in January for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson was manager and claimed his final league trophy in 2013.

Liverpool Struggles Continue As They Drop More Points

Jurgen Klopp Liverpool

Jamie Carragher is alarmed about Liverpool’s recent form after their defeat at Southampton and claims the Reds will not win the league if they don’t sign a centre-back in January.

Jurgen Klopp’s side went down 1-0 to Southampton to give Manchester United the chance to go three points clear at the top of the Premier League if the Red Devils beat Burnley in their game in hand next week.

Liverpool drafted in captain Jordan Henderson as a makeshift centre-half in Monday night’s defeat at St Mary’s but Carragher says Klopp’s side will not be champions if they do not recruit in this month’s transfer window.

Carabao Cup Semi-Finalists Allowed To Make FIVE Subs This Week

The Carabao Cup semi-finalists will be able to make five substitutions in their matches this week in a move that will please Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

City take on Manchester United in Wednesday’s last-four League Cup clash with Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham facing London neighbours Brentford in Tuesday’s other tie.

As well as being able to make five in-game substitutions, the EFL also confirmed on Monday that teams are allowed to select nine players on their substitutes’ bench.

As per the five substitution rules currently in place across certain parts of European football, the four clubs have just three opportunities to make substitutions excluding half-time, full-time and half-time in extra-time.

Canadian Alphonso Davies Named Europe’s Most Valuable Young Player

Alphonso Davies Canada

In a first for Canadian soccer, Bayern Munich defender Alphonso Davies has been ranked the most valuable young footballer in Europe. Davies is ranked number one, well ahead of Jadon Sancho, Ansu Fati and Erling Haaland.

According to an algorithm modelled by the CIES Football Observatory, 19-year-old Davies has the highest estimated transfer value of any player born in the 2000s who is currently playing in one of Europe’s “big five” leagues — standing at a hefty €180 million.

The CIES values are scientifically calculated using an array of variables, such as the player’s age, their contact duration, international status and expected career trajectory, as well as transfer market levels and club finances.

Arsenal Banish Mesut Ozil

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says he feels he has “failed” with midfielder Mesut Ozil after leaving him out of his 25-man Premier League squad.

The German, who had also been omitted from the Europa League squad, can now only play for Arsenal Under-23s until his deal expires in summer 2021.

The 32-year-old, who joined Arsenal for a then club record £42.4m in 2013, has not played for the club since 7 March.

“My conscience is very calm because I have been really fair,” said Arteta.

Manchester United Finances Hit Hard By COVID

Manchester United Old Trafford

Manchester United suffered a £70m drop in revenue in the period to 30 June 2020 as a direct result of the coronavirus pandemic.

United’s overall revenue was down 18.8% from £627.1m to £509m, but part of this was due to the club not qualifying for last season’s Champions League. In last year’s statement, United had estimated revenues could reach £580m.

Overall, United made a net £18.9m profit in 2018-19 and a net £23.2m loss in the most recent financial year.

It was also confirmed within the results that the Glazers still took an additional £23.23m out of the club in the form of share dividends.

Virgil van Dijk Ruled Out For Season

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was right to be concerned about Virgil van Dijk’s injury after the Merseyside derby as the defender has been ruled out for the season after suffering anterior cruciate ligament damage.

The grade three tear that Van Dijk has suffered – which was revealed during a scan on Saturday night – will require surgery to be corrected but Liverpool do not have a date for when the operation will be performed. For that reason, they will not put a timeframe on his recovery program.
