    PITCH CLEARED

    The pitch at Old Trafford has now been cleared – much to relief of Sky pundits Micah Richards, Roy Keane and Graeme Souness.

    The Premier League believe today's match between United and Liverpool WILL take place at 4:30pm as planned.

    Although the pitch has cleared, there are still thousands of United fans outside the ground making their voices heard.

    CAVANI WINS PLAYER OF THE MONTH

    Edinson Cavani has been named United's Player of the Month for April.

    Speaking of the striker – who is out of contract in the summer – boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "He's more than just a goal poacher and good goalscorer.

    "He's played for so long that he has that calmness and composure about him. He's showing his experience. We want the experienced players to step up and he definitely has done.

    "He was out for seven months and had not played for a long time before he came. He had injuries but worked hard, showed his quality. He knows I'd love to have him for another year.

    "I understand it's been very difficult for him. I've promised him Old Trafford and Manchester is a different place with fans in it.

    "I'm doing my best! Hopefully, nights like this help him see himself here for another year."

    THE R£D$

    Liverpool have risen above Manchester United in the Premier League wage bill standings – but still sit miles adrift of Manchester City.

    The official salary totals for the 2019-20 season have been confirmed.

    Arsenal and Tottenham ran the tightest ship wage-wise, spending just £225m and £181m respectively last term.

    SHAW LOVES TRIO

    Luke Shaw has also highlighted the importance of Bruno Fernandes, Edinson Cavani and Paul Pogba.

    Speaking to the official United website, Shaw said: "In the big games, big moments, big players come alive. All three of them did against Roma.

    "I think everyone was brilliant in the second half but, of course, we know the quality that they’ve got and possess and they showed that.

    "Hopefully that can push them on now in the end of the season, every game now is very important. We want to finish the season high in the league and of course win the Europa League."

    CONFIDENCE HIGH

    Luke Shaw has admitted United's confidence is high heading into today's match against Liverpool.

    Speaking to the official United website, Shaw said: "I’ve been here for a long time now, so I know how important this [the Liverpool] game is.

    "Of course the players do but most importantly the fans as well. It’s a game we’re looking forward to.

    "Of course, we come off the back of a really good win so confidence is high and we’re looking forward to the game on Sunday."

    THE RUN-IN

    United fans will be hoping they have six fixtures left to play this season after today's match against Liverpool.

    Next up is the second leg of the Europa League semi-final against Roma on Thursday, May 6.

    Should United hold on to their 6-2 lead, they will face either Arsenal or Villarreal in the final on May 26.

    Before then, they play Aston Villa, Leicester City, Fulham and Wolves in the Premier League.

    United are currently second in the table, four points ahead of the Foxes in third having played a game less.

    POGBA READY

    Paul Pogba has recognised the importance of today's game against bitter rivals Liverpool.

    Speaking to the United Review before the match, the World Cup winner said: "Obviously, every game is important but even more so against Liverpool; we know the rivalry between the two clubs.

    "But we have to think about us – we are in second place and we want to stay there and push the first one [Manchester City], so obviously this is an important game for us and we want to win this one."

    PREM SUCCESS

    Let's take a look at United's Premier League season so far.

    With 16 goals and 11 assists in the league, it's hard to deny Bruno Fernandes has been their best player this year.

    Luke Shaw's revival is supported by the stats as he's delivered 157 Premier League crosses this term.

    Captain Harry Maguire, pulling the strings from the back, has made more than 2,000 passes in the league so far.

    SANCH-GO

    Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc has confirmed Jadon Sancho has a 'gentlemen's agreement' in place regarding his future – but this is not the case for Erling Haaland.

    Both Manchester United and Liverpool have been linked with the 21-year-old.

    Speaking to ARD, Zorc said: "We already had a gentlemen's agreement with Jadon last year that he can switch under certain conditions.

    "He's been with us for a couple of years. However, this agreement does not exist with Erling."

    Speaking of United's pursuit of Sancho last summer, Zorc added: "In the end, the requirements were not met."

    CAV IT ALL

    For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the equation is simple – a smile on the face of his dynamic duo over the next few weeks means a beaming grin on his own for months.

    With an added bonus of convincing Manchester United’s third musketeer that the Theatre of Dreams is indeed the place to turn them into reality.

    Solskjaer said: “Edi and Paul are winners but are also human beings. So it’s important they enjoy playing for this team.

    “If we can play like we did against Roma, if we go again against Liverpool and they can feel our progress, our chances are bigger to keep them.

    “I have always said with Paul I enjoy managing him, I enjoy coaching him, I enjoy talking to him and I also enjoy challenging him.

    “You can see he’s enjoying himself here, he has a smile on his face.”

    REMEMBER NANI?

    The ex-Manchester United winger scored a superb goal for current side Orlando City in last night’s match against Cincinnati.

    Since leaving the Red Devils in 2015, Nani has played for Fenerbahce, Valencia, Lazio, Sporting and the MLS team.

    GOOD MORNING MAN UTD FANS

    Paul Pogba will be sold this summer if he refuses to commit to signing a new deal at Manchester United.

    Yet United are still confident they can keep him at Old Trafford — even though it will cost a fortune to do so.

    And that is likely to lead to an exit for David De Gea, as the money saved on the keeper’s wages would help cover the hefty pay hike Pogba would demand.

    The French midfielder, 28, could leave on a free when his contract ends in just over a year, with ex-club Juventus leading the chase. United chiefs are getting twitchy and want talks with his agent Mino Raiola.

    They lost him for nothing when he joined Juve as a teen in 2012 — and paid out £89million to re-sign him in 2016.

    Old Trafford bosses are keen to keep him, despite the fact he will want at least £500,000 a week.

    United will also will reject any approaches for Donny van de Beek this summer despite a flop first season.

    SunSport understands his former club Ajax are keen on bringing the Dutch midfielder back on loan.

    But Old Trafford chiefs will reject that and issue a hands-off warning to any other interested teams.

    United have big plans for the 24-year-old — who cost £40million last summer and has played just 330 minutes in the Premier League.

    The Red Devils have told him to sit tight and he will get his chance — even though he has struggled to break into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting 11.

    RIGHT VAN MAN

    Man Utd will reject any approaches for Donny van de Beek this summer despite a flop first season.

    The Red Devils have told him to sit tight and he will get his chance — even though he has struggled to break into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting 11.

    Van de Beek and Solskjaer have held talks recently about his future and the United boss made his stance clear.

    The Holland international has become a big fan favourite at the club despite his lack of first-team action.

    FAN-DEMONIUM

    Every Premier League team will be allowed fans in their stadium before the end of the season after an entire round of fixtures were moved.

    Prem chiefs today confirmed that match week 37 set for Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 May will take place a few days later.

    The round will now be played on Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 May – one day after the latest lockdown restrictions lift.

    From Monday 17 May sports teams can host up to 10,000 fans or 25 per cent of stadium capacity.

    That meant that teams scheduled at home on the final day of the season on Sunday 23 May could’ve potentially had an unfair advantage.

    But the Premier League today moved the penultimate set of fixtures – meaning the 10 away sides on the final day will now have a midweek home game with fans.

    DRINK DRIVE RAP

    Ex-Man United player Chris Eagles was arrested for being drunk and asleep in his car outside his Hollyoaks star girlfriend’s home, a court heard.

    Cops say they discovered the winger, 35, slumped over the wheel of his luxury Audi and nearly three times the limit at Jennifer Metcalfe’s house at 3.15am.

    He split from fiancee Danielle Mitchinson, 30, last October before quickly moving on with her pal Jennifer, 37, who plays Mercedes McQueen in the soap.

    Eagles dozed off in his car after getting no answer at her address in Altrincham, Gtr Manchester, the court was told.

    Cops were called and prosecutor Nicole Bridgeman told Manchester JPs the engine was on, his seatbelt was buckled and it seemed he had been about to drive off.

    But Jeremy Spencer, defending, said: “The engine was on purely to get his phone charged.”
