In the end, football was forced to take a back seat on the day that the English game's biggest fixture was scheduled.

And for Diogo Jota, the team news provided confirmation he would not be starting the Reds' most important league fixture of the season.

Both Liverpool and their hosts named their starting XIs for a game which, at that point, they still hoped would take place on Sunday, May 2.

Jota had, of course, gone five games without a goal prior to the trip to Old Trafford – a barren run for a player who had averaged a goal every 97 minutes in league and Europe prior.

With the likes of Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri available for the right price, the Reds' recruitment staff are keen to add to their frontline options when the transfer window opens.

But, while Manchester United fans' protest against the Glazer family's ownership has rightly dominated the headlines since, observers were still given a small hint as to what might have been on the pitch.

It is telling that Roberto Firmino has started every game since then, and was given the nod for the weekend's abandoned Old Trafford clash.
