For Manchester United and Liverpool, however, a show of cards was laid out in intriguing fashion among the melee.

We now know history will define yesterday's encounter as the game which never was.

We now know this is how both teams would've lined up: No Edinson Cavani, Diogo Jota or Gini Wijnaldum was enough to raise eyebrows on both sides.

That being said, and in a strange and complex weekend of hypotheticals and what-ifs, we've decided to playout the virtual battle of where the game would have been won and lost in three areas from those who would have lined up: An obvious one, but if United would've lined up in a 4-2-3-1 shape with Rashford operating alone, he'd have undoubtedly fancied his luck against Phillips — who was somewhat surprisingly passed fit for Liverpool, enabling Fabinho to slot back into midfield.

That leaves Thiago, who would possibly have been charged with getting Liverpool on the ball and playing through the lines with his penentrative passing.

As the game grew ever increasingly doubtful, the team news was strangely announced as both teams remained camped in their city centre hotels, seeking reassurance about when it was safe to come out.

They're all things we didn't get to see play out on Sunday, but all worth keeping an eye on for when the fixture eventually gets played.
