Manchester United’s players appeared in high spirits as they arrived at the Lowry Hotel in preparation for their Premier League clash against Liverpool on Sunday.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has earned praise since arriving at the club in December, had a friendly greeting for a member of hotel staff as he made his way into the building.

The rest of the first-team squad followed into the Salford hotel as part of a pre-match routine that dates back before Solskjaer took charge.

Paul Pogba, so key to the club’s recent revival, Jesse Lingard and David De Gea all made their way into the hotel in buoyant mood.

After staying overnight at the Lowry, the players will then make their way to Old Trafford to warm up ahead of the 2:05pm kick-off against their near neighbours and fierce rivals.

Solskjaer will be putting his unbeaten Premier League record on the line, having posted eight wins and one draw since succeeding Jose Mourinho.

He faces his toughest test to date against a team currently unbeaten in five games and tied on points with Manchester City at the top of the table.

The last meeting between these two teams ended in an emphatic 3-1 victory for Liverpool with Sadio Mane and a Xherdan Shqiri double doing the damage after Lingard had levelled for the visitors.

Champions League: UEFA reacts as CAS overturns Man City’s ban

Published

By

UEFA has reacted to the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), to overturn Manchester City’s two-year ban from European competitions.

The ruling means City will play in the Champions League next season.

The former English champions have also had their fine reduced from £25million to £8.9million.

City had been banned by UEFA for breaking Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules, but have had the decision overturned by CAS.

However, a statement from European football’s governing body on Monday, showed they were not happy with what they see as many of City’s alleged breaches being “time-barred.”

“UEFA notes that the CAS panel found that there was insufficient conclusive evidence to uphold all of the CFCB’s conclusions in this specific case and that many of the alleged breaches were time-barred due to the 5 year time period foreseen in the UEFA regulations.

“Over the last few years, Financial Fair Play has played a significant role in protecting clubs and helping them become financially sustainable and UEFA and ECA remain committed to its principles,” part of UEFA’s statement read.

Champions League: What CAS verdict on Man City’s ban means for Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal

Published

By

On Monday morning, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), overturned Manchester City’s two-year ban from the Champions League.

UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) in February, handed the ban to the Etihad club, claiming it had breached Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations between 2012 and 2016.

CAS in a statement explained that “Manchester City FC did not disguise equity funding as sponsorship contributions, but did fail to cooperate with the Uefa authorities.”

It further reduced City’s original fine of 30m euros (£26.9m) to 10m euros.

Beyond the lifting of suspension and reduction of fines, today’s verdict has different implications for some of the top clubs in the Premier League.

First, it means that only two Champions League slots are available in England now, with champions Liverpool and City already qualified.

Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday, now means they cannot qualify for Europe’s biggest club competition officially.

However, Manchester United can make a late run for the top four places, if they continue their fine run of form with a win over Southampton on Monday night.

Chelsea were humiliated 3-0 by Sheffield United last week, but Leicester’s 4-1 defeat against Bournemouth has given them fresh optimism.

The Foxes are now obvious candidates to drop out of the race for Champions League places altogether, especially with their tricky run-in.
