Liverpool Vs Manchester United Football Match Score 5 March 2023

Liverpool host their old rivals Manchester United on Sunday in the Premier League – in a different position to recent years. So who would you pick in a combined XI from both teams? The Reds have been challenging for titles in recent years with United down the table – meaning when we have asked this in the past the team has been dominated by Liverpool players.

But this time United are four places and 13 points above Liverpool – will that be reflected in your team? Pick the XI below and share with your friends using #bbcfootball. Manchester United took another step towards adding the FA Cup to their Carabao Cup win after reaching the quarter-finals of the competition. The Red Devils overcame West Ham on Wednesday to book their place but despite that, Erik ten Hag appears to be putting plans in place for next season with potential moves for Victor Osimhen and Frenkie de Jong.

Whilst the Red Devils have been in cup action over the past week, Arsenal and Liverpool have remained focus on their commitments in the Premier League. The Gunners thumped Everton to extend their lead at the top of the division. Elsewhere in the top-flight, Liverpool battled in the second-half to secured a much-needed win over Wolves.

There also appears to be developments going on at Chelsea as their woeful form goes on under Graham Potter. The Stamford Bridge hierarchy appear to have made a decision on his future amid calls for the sack.
Dear Dave, I read the piece you wrote about Klopp and this team, the first thing I noted was “we (like you and others) don’t believe Klopp is not the man to get us out of the mess Liverpool finds itself this season”. Is there a committee that was setup on behalf of all Liverpool fans across the globe? How could YOU pen an opinion and conclude it’s for ALL? Until someone or some people appoint you a representative, stick to the word I next time you have thoughts to share.

I will not be fair in saying you have no love for Liverpool but at this point, rationality is out of the window, after all, you have been nothing but unfair to Klopp which is what prompted me to send you this letter. In your words I could perceive passion ( one of the pillars of Liverpool FC) and I can say with a degree of certainty that the Lows of this season has driven me to places my courage dare not conceive in its thoughts, but one thing you seem to forget or ignore is that,

YNWA means that when life happens to one of us, it happens to all of us. If we won’t walk together through the storm, how could we ask to join the merry when the sky spits the gold of sunshine on us? Klopp has done enough to deserve an eternal place in the hearts of Liverpool fans. From the moment he walk through those doors at melwood, to his trudges off the Anfield turf after that disaster against Real Madrid some 2 weeks ago.

It’s no longer news that this team is in crisis and in need of an overhaul or “surgery” to be able to compete again but to suggest that Klopp is responsible or no longer has the ability to clean up this “mess” is either ignorant, unfair or both. One brick at a time this empire was built and everyone had a part to play, from the pockets of FSG, to the passionate chants of the kop end, from the candy coated convincing words of Micheal Edwards, to the beaming smiles of the Anfield grounds men, from the whispers of little kids taking a peek at their heroes training at melwood, to the celebratory sprints and fist pumps of Klopp on the touchline. No one can take all the glory of seasons past or the sole blame for what this season is dealing us.

It’s not everyday anyone gets to say this, but I believe Liverpool deserve Klopp as much as it does him, he is a reflection of everything Liverpool (even when he crossed a line by barking at a linesman against Man city) and clueless is never a word to be associated with him. No player pulls up the famous red shirt or exit the club without Klopp’s blessings or plan for a replacement, even if not a like for like.

This team needs to go under the knife and no one is sitting on the fence about this, some players have worn out and no longer poses the steel or legs to execute Klopp’s brand of football but it’s unjust to remotely suggest Klopp “would not be the right man to perform the extreme surgery required”. He had the balls to say he would deliver in his first interview as manager and he did so not just winning all there is to win, but hearts as well.

I had droves of rival fans who concluded after the defeat to Real Madrid in 2018 that our coach is in a snare because of the finals he has not been able to win (to be fair to them he lost about six in a row) , even some red supporters slipped into that line of thought. He said after the game that “we will come back again stronger” and they did, so I put it to you, How many finals has he lost since that night?
Magdalena Eriksson has warned Arsenal there is no chance of complacency from Chelsea in the League Conti Cup final despite their sensational run of form.

The Chelsea captain was part of the side that defeated the Gunners less than a week ago in the FA Cup fifth round, when Sophie Ingle and Sam Kerr scored, the Aussie striking on her 100th Blues appearance. That tie made up part one of a back-to-back cup double header between the London rivals, who also meet at Selhurst Palace in the Conti Cup final on Sunday afternoon.

Both sides are competing on multiple fronts as we enter the business end of the season. The pair have Champions League quarter-finals to come this month, but Chelsea have had the edge between the two recently in the cups. Emma Hayes’ side won the delayed 2021 FA Cup final at Wembley against Arsenal and also knocked them out at the semi-stage last season.
