Before the weekend action kicked off, one question on the minds of fans of the Premier League would be whether Liverpool would be a title contending team. The players and staff at Liverpool Football Club were also thinking this question as a tough match away at Old Trafford to an underachieving Manchester United team would be another test to see whether Brendan Rodger’s guys would have what it takes to push for the Premier League title.

With the World cup looming all footballing eyes in England were on England’s final game before Roy Hodgson has to select his squad. The friendly was seen as a final chance for many of the fringe players in the current England to shine and book their place to Rio.
