Nobody needs to be reminded of the bitterness of the rivalry between Manchester United and Liverpool, but the scenes witnessed in England training today is definitely some next level stuff when it comes to the animosity between the two sets of players.
During a Rondo in training, Jesse Lingard took the rivalry too far after hitting Adam Lallana in a place where no man should be hit.
Just kidding though, only a miskick from the United man but definitely a painful one for his Liverpool counterpart. Watch the mishap below, it comes after the 2.55 mark in the video.

Napoli & Senegal player Kalidou Koulibaly has been heavily linked with Premier League outfit and Arsenal rivals Chelsea for quite some time now with the reports of Blues boss Antonio Conte being a big fan of the defender.

Rangers took on Celtic this weekend as the famed Old Firm derby returned to the Ibrox for the first time in five years.
Kenny Miller opened the scoring within 12 minutes, but Celtic rose back through Moussa Dembele’s 39th minute strike. Scott Sinclair scored the winner on the 65th minute to cap off another memorable derby win for the visitors.
Moussa Dembele was one of the standout players for the Hoops as he has been for the length of the season. The Frenchman has been compared to Didier Drogba for his scoring prowess and strength and both the attributes were on display during the match.
He opened the scoring for his side, and as the match stretched into injury time he was seen using his strength to wind the clock down. In the video below, the starlet is seen holding off Rangers’ defenders for more than half of the allotted injury time of four minutes – over the course of 3 corners and a free kick. Check it out the sequence below!
The pressure was on Liverpool as the Reds took on Stoke City on Tuesday night at Anfield. All their title rivals had notched up wins on Boxing Day, and anything other than a victory would have put them behind on the title race.
Liverpool coped up admirably and even though Stoke opened scoring through Jonathan Walters, the Reds went into the break with a 2-1 lead courtesy of Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino. A Giannelli Imbula own goal and a smart finish from substitute Daniel Sturridge ensured the victory, with an emphatic 4-1 scoreline.
The man of the night though was the skipper, Jordan Henderson. The midfielder dictated the tempo of the game, with his slick passing and tenacious defending.
He even pulled out some brilliant long range passes from the hat, especially an eye-catching cross field through ball in the 76th minute.
