Fred needs to take Man United chance at Palace - Solskjaer

City face Manuel Pellegrini's side just three days after a gruelling 120-minute Carabao Cup final against Chelsea on Sunday and with the Hammers having played two days' earlier.

"Obviously Bobby was pretty much always involved and it's possible that's not the case this time, but we obviously have options and we will use from the start one of them and maybe during the game a second one".

The atmosphere around the Liverpool squad at the moment appears to be all doom and gloom with the Anfield club slowing seeing their lead at the top of the Premier League table diminish.

"I can not anticipate how far he will go, but I admire the fact that he took responsibility", said Guardiola.

Now sitting top of the table with eleven games still to play, most Liverpool fans would have jumped at the chance of being in such a position at the start of the season.

Liverpool midfielder James Milner spoke afterwards and said, " We want to win every game, no matter who it's against, and we know we can.

With Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic and Juan Mata suffering injuries, Fred could be thrust into the starting XI against Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

"We've not had a session yet so I don't think there are a lot of positives, no", he told a pre-match news conference.

But Lingard did not even last until the break as he suffered what appeared to be a recurrence of his hamstring strain and limped off to be replaced by Alexis Sanchez.

Initially thought to be a doubt for the visit of Watford on Wednesday, the Liverpool forward could be called upon if absolutely necessary but if not, he is expected to deemed fit for Sunday's Merseyside derby at Goodison.

"Everything that could have gone wrong in the first half went wrong".

Hodgson was coy over the Eagles' chances tomorrow night as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United take the journey down the to South London.

"That game was there for the taking and Liverpool didn't take that opportunity", added Neville. I want to "smell" in the beginning of the game, during the game, with our fans, that when one competition is over, really we want to win this title.

Most impressive was how the 23-year-old managed to keep Mohamed Salah in his back pocket all game.

"Hopefully it's a good point come the end of the season".

"Huge amount of possession we had, just weren't clinical enough in the final third".
