Manchester United vs. Liverpool Match Analysis and Prediction

This coming Sunday will be a Super Sunday in the Premier League when Manchester United hosts their bitter rivals Liverpool at the Old Trafford. The match which is scheduled to start at 17.05GMT will see Manchester United trying to hamper Liverpool’s chances of lifting the title. Liverpool will also be trying to prove they are superior over Manchester United this season. Their rivalry will extend to all times high if Manchester happens to be the ones to make Liverpool miss lifting the EPL cup this season.

Since the coming of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s charge at Old Trafford, Manchester’s star has been on the rise and has not lost any league match so far. With the last match between Liverpool and Manchester United ending Jose Mourinho’s career at Old Trafford in December 2019, will they also spoil the party for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Manchester United? Despite losing recently at Old Trafford to PSG at Old Trafford to 0-2 in their Champions League round of 16, Man U rose above the occasion to see off Chelsea on Monday to a 0-2 win in their FA Cup 5th round.

The Reds are desperately eyeing their first premier league cup win since 1990 and they don’t want it to slip them this time. Knowing that they are at the bar with Manchester City, a slight slip will see them missing the silverware. Their last league fixture against Bournemouth was a must win for them and they did so with a 3-1 superiority. Mohamed Saleh was a man of the match after scoring his 17th goal of the season and he is a must watch for Manchester United.

Manchester United has come a long way this season. They are not going to Liverpool spoil the party yet. They are banking on the swift Pogba who has tremendously improved since the coming of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Red Devils expect to continue the party at Old Trafford as they revenge against Liverpool who beat them 3-1. Liverpool, on the other hand, is under pressure to be ahead of Manchester City who is at par with 65 points but has goal difference superiority but as well played one match more. However, we expect Manchester United to hold their ground and entertain their home fans to victory.
