The prediction of Manchester United and Liverpool comes before the match of the 3rd round of the Premier League. This game will be played on August 22nd, at Old Trafford, England. In this match overview, we bring you betting tips and accurate predictions of results based on the analysis of these two sides.
Manchester United vs Liverpool Match Preview and Team News
When Manchester United and Liverpool face off in what used to be a major Premier League derby, there will be so many expectations at Old Trafford. Liverpool is currently a better team than Manchester United, who are still having trouble in the new season. The Red Devils lost humiliatingly to Brentford 4-0 at the weekend after losing to Brighton 2-1 in their season kick-off. Given the atmosphere in the locker room at the moment, a home victory should not be expected. Jadon Sancho 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. Scott McTominay found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. Anthony Martial (Hamstring Injury) and Facundo Pellistri (Ankle Injury) won’t be playing for Manchester United coach Erik ten Hag.
On the other side, Jurgen Klopp’s team is in dire need of their first victory of the campaign after surrendering four points in back-to-back draws against Fulham (2-2) and Crystal Palace (1-1), respectively. In addition to being suspended for the game, summer acquisitions Darwin Nunez, Konate, Matip, and Diogo Jota are all injured and cannot compete. We don’t think Liverpool will have a better opportunity than this to turn things around after dominating Manchester United 5-0 in their most recent encounter at the Theatre of Dreams. Naby Keita has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Diogo Jota plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Thiago (Hamstring Injury) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Hamstring Injury) will not be playing here. Darwin Núñez will not be able to play in this game after being suspended.
