Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward reportedly intends to stand by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer even if the club miss out on European football.

The Red Devils suffered a 2-0 defeat to bitter rivals Liverpool on Sunday and are a whopping 30 points adrift of the runaway leaders.

Of more concern to Woodward will be the five-point deficit the Red Devils have to make up on fourth-place Chelsea in the race for a Champions League spot.

Regardless of United's final league position, though, The Sun claims that Woodward will show faith in Solskjaer by keeping the Norwegian in charge and backing him financially in the summer.

The report indicates that the Glazer family are supportive of Woodward's plans, with United to continue targeting young and British players in the summer transfer window.

Next up for United is a home meeting with Burnley on Wednesday evening.

How Liverpool could line up against Wolverhampton Wanderers

Liverpool continue their march towards the Premier League title on Thursday night when they face Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

There was a sense of euphoria and unbridled belief around Anfield as the Reds extended their lead at the top of the table to 16 points with a 2-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday, making it 21 wins from 22 games this season.

Jurgen Klopp's side now look like certainties to go on and claim a first title for 30 years, but they will still be wary of a Wolves team that was cruelly denied a draw in the reverse fixture by VAR.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Liverpool could line up for the midweek contest.



Possible LIV XI vs. WOL

Out: Naby Keita (groin), James Milner (thigh), Nathaniel Clyne (knee)
Doubtful: Xherdan Shaqiri (calf), Dejan Lovren (thigh)

Klopp could welcome Fabinho back into his starting lineup for the first time since November after the Brazilian made his return as a sub during Sunday's win over United.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain appears to be the most likely to make way given the form of Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum, although there is a chance that Klopp will take a little longer to ease Fabinho back to first-team action with another appearance from the bench.

Joel Matip was also back amongst the subs on Sunday, but he could face a more difficult task to regain a place in the team with the partnership between Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk helping Liverpool to seven successive clean sheets.

Dejan Lovren is close to a return too, but this match may come just too soon for both him and fellow injury doubt Xherdan Shaqiri.

The front three is unlikely to change with an FA Cup tie at Shrewsbury Town coming up this weekend, meaning that Sadio Mane, who scored the winner in the reverse fixture, will start alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino once again.

Firmino's goal drought at Anfield has been well documented, but the Brazilian's last 10 Liverpool goals have all come away from home and he will be hopeful of increasing that tally at Molineux.

Premier League week 24 predictions including Chelsea vs. Arsenal



Aston Villa vs. Watford (Tuesday, 7.30pm)

Aston Villa and Watford square off in the West Midlands on Tuesday night with just one point separating the clubs in the Premier League table.

The Hornets, on the back of a six-match unbeaten streak, will remain outside of the relegation zone if they avoid defeat.

We say: Aston Villa 1-3 Watford

While Villa are capable of raising their game in front of their own supporters, we cannot back against Watford, who are currently showing everything required to get themselves out of a relegation scrap. As well as their confidence in attack, the Hornets also have the potential to overpower their hosts.

Bournemouth vs. Brighton (Tuesday, 7.30pm)

Bournemouth play host to Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday evening sitting three points adrift of safety after a poor run of form in the Premier League.

Despite a three-game winless streak of their own, Brighton go into the meeting at the Vitality Stadium with a three-point cushion above the relegation zone.

We say: Bournemouth 1-2 Brighton & Hove Albion

Despite home advantage, it is difficult to back Bournemouth right now. As far as Brighton are concerned, playing on away territory may suit them, and we feel that the Seagulls will have too much quality in the final third.

Crystal Palace vs. Southampton (Tuesday, 7.30pm)

Crystal Palace will be looking to build on their 2-2 draw with Manchester City when they welcome Southampton to Selhurst Park for a midweek Premier League clash.

The Eagles came away from the Etihad Stadium with a share of the spoils to end the weekend ninth in the table, two points ahead of opponents Southampton.

We say: Crystal Palace 1-1 Southampton

Both teams have made themselves tough to beat over the past month, losing three of their last 17 games combined, and we expect that to be reflected in the scoreline at Selhurst Park on Tuesday.

Everton vs. Newcastle (Tuesday, 7.30pm)

Fresh from snatching a late victory over Chelsea on Saturday, Newcastle United return to Premier League action in midweek as they take on Everton at Goodison Park.

The sides enter Tuesday's match level on points following Everton's 1-1 draw with West Ham United, though the Toffees are a place better off than United by virtue of a superior goal difference.

We say: Everton 0-0 Newcastle United

A place in the top half of the Premier League awaits the winner and on the basis of the season so far there is little to choose between them. Newcastle kept a rare shutout last time out and we are backing them to do likewise on Tuesday.

Sheffield United vs. Man City (Tuesday, 7.30pm)

Their Premier League title hopes in tatters, Manchester City head to Sheffield United on Tuesday evening with boss Pep Guardiola admitting his focus is now elsewhere.

The reigning champions were held to a 2-2 draw by Crystal Palace on Saturday and are now 16 points adrift of runaway leaders Liverpool, who still have a game in hand to play.

We say: Sheffield United 0-1 Manchester City

Three of United's six Premier League losses this term have come against teams starting the day in the top three of the division, losing each of those without scoring. We expect a similar outcome in Tuesday's clash at Bramall Lane.

Chelsea vs. Arsenal (Tuesday, 8.15pm)

Both Chelsea and Arsenal will be looking to bounce back from disappointing results when the London rivals lock horns at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Tuesday night.

The Blues remain fourth in the Premier League table but suffered a 1-0 loss at Newcastle United on Saturday, while Arsenal were held to a 1-1 draw by Sheffield United at the Emirates Stadium.

We say: Chelsea 1-1 Arsenal

Both teams will be desperate to return to winning ways following disappointing results at the weekend, but we are leaning towards a low-scoring draw at Stamford Bridge. Arsenal, even without Aubameyang, are certainly capable of putting in a positive performance against an inconsistent Chelsea side.

Leicester vs. West Ham (Wednesday, 7.30pm)

Leicester City take on West Ham United at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday, with the Foxes looking to arrest their recent run of poor form.

West Ham, on the other hand, have seen a marked improvement since David Moyes was reinstated as manager, taking four points from their last three Premier League matches.

We say: Leicester City 1-1 West Ham United

This game sees two sides face off at a crucial point in their seasons, with both clubs looking over their shoulders at the chasing pack. West Ham have seen improvements since Moyes arrived and this can be expected to continue on Wednesday, with the Hammers taking a point home from the Midlands.

Tottenham vs. Norwich (Wednesday, 7.30pm)

Tottenham Hotspur welcome Norwich City to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday, with Jose Mourinho's side in need of a win following a poor recent run of form.

The visitors tasted victory on Saturday for just the fourth time in the Premier League this season and know any positive result here will do their chances of survival a lot of good.

We say: Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Norwich City

Spurs have been in poor form recently and Norwich's win on Saturday should have given them the confidence to take the game to the home side. These sides drew at Carrow Road earlier this season, so expect a repeat on Wednesday.

Manchester United vs. Burnley (Wednesday, 8.15pm)

Manchester United play host to Burnley on Wednesday night looking to respond to losing out at Premier League leaders Liverpool at the weekend.

Meanwhile, the Clarets make the trip to Old Trafford having ended a run of four successive defeats with a comeback victory over Leicester City.

We say: Manchester United 2-1 Burnley

Despite their contrasting fortunes at the weekend, United remain favourites to prevail here. Burnley should push their hosts all the way, although we feel that United's superior class will shine through in the closing stages.

Wolves vs. Liverpool (Thursday, 8pm)

Champions-elect Liverpool travel to Molineux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Thursday looking to continue their remarkable run of form.

Jurgen Klopp's side have won 21 and lost none of their 22 games in the Premier League this season to build a 16-point lead at the top of the table, but take on a Wolves side that ran them close in the reverse fixture at Anfield.

We say: Wolves 0-1 Liverpool

Thursday's match looks like it could be one of the toughest Liverpool have left this season, but Klopp's side have become masters at grinding out results. Wolves have a dreadful scoring record against the Merseysiders and have developed an unwelcome habit of conceding the first goal in games recently, which is a position Liverpool very rarely drop points from nowadays.
