Manchester United vs. Liverpool: Both sides make changes for the second half

Manchester United and Liverpool have both made substitutions for the second half, with Manchester United replacing Ashley Young with Antonio Valencia, and Liverpool taking off Lucas Leiva for Daniel Sturridge.

United's change was partly a forced one, with Ashley Young struggling with a knock after colliding with Daniel Agger, but it appears Liverpool will be going 4-4-2. An odd decision to take Lucas Leiva off, because Joe Allen had really been struggling in the first half. For United, they'll be hoping Valencia can put his recent poor form behind him - he's not been enjoying the best of seasons.

Sturridge gives us a glimpse of what he can do straight away though, as he gets into a good shooting position but attempts the pass instead, and the chance disappears. Liverpool need to be braver in this second half, and take advantage of the fact they're only 1-0 down from the first 45 minutes.
