Liverpool vs Manchester United Match Preview
Liverpool have started the season as genuine title contenders but poor form after the previous international break have left the Reds seventh in the Premier League. It has been a hugely disappointing September for Liverpool who were eliminated from the EFL Cup and were left without a win from two Champions League matches. Three wins, three draws and one loss is good enough only for 12 points and seven off the table-topping Manchester clubs. It is not yet a must-win for the hosts because they have lost only once this season and are not yet out of the title reckoning. But, a loss at Anfield will be detrimental to their title challenge.
Mourinho’s Manchester United started off the blocks positively, setting the early pace along with local rivals City. The addition of Romelu Lukaku seems to have given them new power upfront as can be seen from the 21 goals scored in seven matches. But, it is the addition of Nemanja Matic that added steel to their midfield and solidity to the defence. They have conceded only two goals so far in the campaign helping them to a 10-match unbeaten streak across competitions, that includes nine wins. But, to say that this is their biggest test of the season is an understatement and the match against Liverpool could have repercussions on his side’s ability to challenge for the title.
