Liverpool vs Manchester United Match Preview and Team News
The hosts are second in the league but could be as low as fourth if Leicester and Tottenham win their earlier games. Liverpool is three points behind United and is looking to end a run of three league games without a win, which hasn’t happened since May 2018. Recent games have seen them held to a home draw by West Brom, another stalemate at Newcastle, and then defeat at Southampton. Away form is definitely something Jurgen Klopp has to improve in 2021. Results at home are still progressing well, though it was a big disappointment not to join everyone else and get a win over West Brom. That draw ended a run of eight straight home league wins for Liverpool. They have only lost one of their last ten games against Manchester United, though six of the previous nine have ended level. Georginio Wijnaldum plays well in the middle of the pitch, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Sadio Mane plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
Manchester United struggled early on in the season with seven points from their first six league fixtures. Being three points clear at the top in mid-January wasn’t expected at that stage. The calls to sack Ole Gunnar Solksjaer have gone a bit quiet of late, and United are now title challengers. Nine wins and two draws in their last 11 league games have seen them climb from the Premier League’s bottom half to its very summit. Home form was a big problem, but a run of six without a win at Old Trafford has been replaced by four wins out of five. Their away record was already impressive, with 12 wins and three draws in their last 15 league fixtures. A form guide for the last ten league games has United five points clear at the top and with nine points more than Liverpool. McTominay has excellent control of the ball, he can play in several positions, and every team needs a player like this. Marcus Rashford is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance.
