Man Utd travel to face Brighton on the south coast

Brighton and Hove Albion host Manchester United on Saturday’s late afternoon kick-off, with the Red Devils still fighting for a European berth for next season - although a Champions League spot is now incredibly unlikely to be awaiting Erik ten Hag. The Ajax boss takes over from Ralf Rangnick in the summer, with the latter being appointed Austria’s national team manager alongside a consultancy role at Old Trafford.

Before that though, United still have to claim enough points to at least ensure they finish sixth and take a Europa League place for 2022/23, with the Monday night win over Brentford a step in the right direction. They have just two matches left to play this season, able to reach a maximum of 64 points.

For Brighton, it’s about ensuring they finish the campaign strongly enough to be in the top 10, having been through spells of impressive football this term - but also the usual lack of a scoring touch, with just 34 scored in their 35 Premier League games so far. However they have lost only one of the last six and sit ninth.

Follow all the reaction from Brighton vs Man United below:

Liverpool 0 - 1 Tottenham

68 mins: Chance! Tottenham have plenty of men back to defend making it hard for Liverpool to create a clear chance at goal. Kostas Tsimikas whips the ball into the box from the left and finds Luis Diaz but he’s penned in by two defenders and can only head the ball wide of goal.

Liverpool 0 - 1 Tottenham

65 mins: Tottenham clear the corner without too much trouble but Liverpool recover the ball.

Here too come the Liverpool subs. Kostas Tsimikas and Diogo Jota come on to replace Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson.

Liverpool 0 - 1 Tottenham

62 mins: Jurgen Klopp is preparing a change for Liverpool. Kostas Tsimikas is stripped and ready to go on the sidelines, Diogo Jota is also getting ready.

Jordan Henderson sends another cross into the box but Cristian Romero turns it behind for a corner.

Liverpool 0 - 1 Tottenham

59 mins: That’s a big goal in relation to the top four race as Tottenham are moving above Arsenal as it stands. Liverpool are also affected in their title challenge. The Reds need to respond as soon as possible. The next 30 minutes should be fascinating.

GOAL! Liverpool 0 - 1 Tottenham (Son, 56’)⚽️

56 mins: Huge goal! It’s beautifully worked by Spurs as Hugo Lloris fires the ball over to Emerson Royal. He attempts to flick the ball over the top and picks out Harry Kane. Kane holds the ball up and brings it to the edge of the box. Ryan Sessegnon comes sprinting into space on the left side and Kane sends him the ball, he squares it into the six yard area where Son Heung-min is wide open for a tap in!

Liverpool 0 - 0 Tottenham

54 mins: Chance! Mo Salah is brought down by Ben Davies who picks up a yellow card. The Liverpool free kick is easily defended and Tottenham send Son Heung-min flying up the pitch on the counter-attack. He’s got Harry Kane and Dejan Kulusevski to his right but Son goes it alone and sees his effort blocked by a back tracking Andy Robertson.

Liverpool 0 - 0 Tottenham

51 mins: It’s Tottenham’s turn to get forward as Harry Kane’s ball over to the right side drops perfectly for Emerson Royal. He brings the ball into the box and looks to cross it but Andy Robertson puts the block in and deflects it out for a corner.

Liverpool 0 - 0 Tottenham

48 mins: Hugo Lloris breathes a sigh of relief as he throws the ball straight to Mo Salah whose chip into the box is cleared by Eric Dier. It was a mistake from the Spurs goalkeeper but Liverpool fail to capitalise on it.

Jordan Henderson then makes a run into the right side of the box and Thiago Alcantara picks him out with a diagonal pass. Henderson cuts the ball back into the middle of the box but can’t find a teammate and Spurs boot it out for a corner.

Second half: Liverpool 0 - 0 Tottenham

Kick off: No changes made by either manager at half-time as Liverpool get the match back underway. Ibrahima Konate fires the ball over to Sadio Mane who loses the ball to Emerson Royal in the air.

Liverpool 0 - 0 Tottenham

A draw here would put Liverpool level on points with Manchester City but they will have played a game more than the Premier League leaders who face Newcastle tomorrow. Liverpool know any dropped points could be fatal for their title hopes.
