Manchester United don’t have positive result and they have to beat the Premier League rivals with 3 goals difference in order to qualify in the next phase of Europa League. Liverpool was better side in the first leg and beat them 2-0, so it will be hard for home side to get back in the game. Despite the big 2-0 from the first leg, their coach Louis van Gaal still believes that they can go through. “I have spoken only with the players about the victory and we have to believe in it. We owe the fans a big result.” – said van Gaal. They have already managed to get back this season against Midtjylland 5-1 (first match 1-2), but Liverpool are much stronger and it won’t be easy. Man Utd want to play in the UEFA Champions League, so they can do it through this competition, if they win the trophy. However, they are still in the race for the 4th position in Premier League, where they will have big match against city rivals on Sunday.

Liverpool made good result in the first leg and they could even make bigger difference, but De Gea was amazing on that match and save his team from bigger catastrophe. Visitors are in the great form with 3 consecutive wins in all competitions and they will be fully motivated to make another good performance and go through. Their coach Jürgen Klopp believes that home side have a chance, but he is not worried about it. “It is absolutely clear there is a chance for Man United – 100% – but we know how to play them. I am not worried.” – said Klopp. This will be the 3rd match between Manchester United vs Liverpool this season. Manchester United won two matches, while Liverpool have managed to beat them once.
