MANCHESTER, England (AP) " With Manchester United on its longest winning run in eight years, it's tempting to conclude that a giant of English soccer is starting to resemble the force of old. Bigger tests lie in wait for United and they start with the visit of Liverpool in the league on Sunday. Win at Old Trafford and United would close to within two points of Liverpool, which heads into the 21st round of games in second place. First-place Chelsea has a 10-point cushion over United with half the season gone, and plays champion Leicester away on Saturday. It will be interesting to see how United manager Jose Mourinho approaches the game against Liverpool.
