In the wake of the fiasco that is the European Super League, domestic football is starting to feel relevant again after a tumultuous 48 hours.
Liverpool make the short trip to Old Trafford in 10 days when Jurgen Klopp’s side will attempt to record a first win at United for 7 years. It’s a vital game for the visitors who are chasing a top four position.
The coronavirus pandemic has caused most of pre-season plans across Europe to be scrapped and most clubs will be forced to work within their own region. Trips to Scotland and Wales are likely but according to the Mirror, Manchester United and Liverpool are now in talks to face each other twice in this summers off-season.
The games, played at Old Trafford and Anfield, offers an alternative to lucrative deals to visit Asia or America.
The first game at Old Trafford is believed to be taking place late in July, before the ‘reverse fixture’ at Anfield thought to be shortly before the start of the new Premier League season.
United and Liverpool last met in pre-season three years ago when Liverpool won 4-1 in America.
