Liverpool vs Manchester United – English Premier League – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Manchester United put rest to allegations of ‘boring football’ during their high scoring draw against Newcastle United in the midweek, but the singular point didn’t help much in their conquest for the top four of the English Premier League standings as they conceded three goals. Louis van Gaal’s side now travel to Anfield to face Liverpool on Sunday.

Manchester United sit on the sixth position with thirty four points while Liverpool are three places and three points behind one of their greatest rivals of all time. The Kops will enter the match on the back of a 3-3 draw against Arsenal.

Team News

Joseph Gomez, Danny Ings, Divock Origi, Martin Skrtl, Philippe Coutinho, Jordan Rossiter, Dejan Lovren and Jon Flanagan continue to remain sidelined while Jordon Ibe and Daniel Sturridge are doubtful. Steven Caulker could make his full debut after joining on loan from Queens Park Rangers this month.

Michael Carrick joins the lengthy list of injuries for the visitors alongside Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo and Nick Powell. Louis van Gaal has conceded that Bastian Schweinsteiger and Phil Jones are doubts for this fixture as well.

Liverpool Possible Starting Lineup: Simon Mignolet, Nathaniel Clyne, Mamadou Sakho, Steven Caulker, Alberto Moreno, Joe Allen, Emre Can, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana.

Manchester United Possible Starting Lineup: David de Gea, Matteo Darmian, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind, Ashley Young, Ander Herrera, Morgan Schneiderlin, Juan Mata, Marouane Fellaini, Anthony Martial, Wayne Rooney.

Thoughts From Both Camps

“From the performance against Arsenal, we have to improve — see what we can do similar, what we can do better, what we shouldn’t do again. If we take the right information, we can do better – and we will need to do better. I enjoyed it against Arsenal but I think we can do better.”

– Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool.

“You can see Klopp plays a very aggressive and pressing kind of game and he already knows the difference between the Premier League and the German league. He is a very capable manager in the Premier League because he has always showed this kind of football and I think the fans will love it.”

– Louis van Gaal, Manchester United.

Contributor’s Pick

According to Head-2-Head statistics, the previous six matches between these two sides have resulted in five wins and a single loss for Manchester United, with the Anfield-based club losing the last four matches in all competitions. The last five encounters have also seen at least three goals, so this should be a high scoring affair.

Although neither club have covered themselves in glory this season, the momentum seems to be with Klopp’s side in spite of having a number of key players out injured. The hosts are likely to win tomorrow with 2-1 being the most probable scoreline.
