Gary Neville believes it would be "impossible" for Manchester United not to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the job of the permanent manager if he were to beat Liverpool.
The two sides face off at Old Trafford on Sunday (kick off at 2.05pm, live on Sky Sports Premier League) with Solskjaer who has only been able to defeat once since he took Jose Mourinho's provisional position in December.
The Norwegian won 11 games out of 13, including victories over Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal – the only defeat against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Speaking Sky SportsGary Neville said: "Two or three months ago he would have been hopeful of getting the job, but if he beats Liverpool on Sunday, I can not see in any way that he can not get it.
"It should not be defined by a match, but beating Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal and then Liverpool would make it almost impossible not to get the job done.
"It's an incredible set of results and it would make it much harder to stop him if he keeps beating team after team."
Partner Sky Sports The pundit, Jamie Carragher, also believes it would be "very difficult" for anyone else to receive the work of Old Trafford.
"It must be given the job now, for what it did," said Carragher. "It would be very difficult for another manager to take work in the summer now.

"The pressure on a new manager to get the performance of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is becoming difficult.
"Players will be desperate because he too enjoys their football and the games he won, games that were not winning at the start of the season, which means he is now a cert."
