A lot has changed at Old Trafford in the two months since Manchester United’s humiliating defeat to Liverpool at Anfield in December.

That loss brought and end to Jose Mourinho’s time as manager of the Red Devils, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appointed in a caretaker capacity until the end of the season.

Since then, United have been unbeaten in the Premier League and have recorded impressive away victories over Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Chelsea.

But the arrival of league leaders Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday represents United’s sternest test under Solskjaer, and they’ll need David de Gea to be at his superhuman best, as we explain in the above video.
