Liverpool vs. Manchester United Match Analysis and Prediction

The biggest English fixture full of rivalry occurs on the most significant weekend in the Premier League in terms of the title race. Champions Liverpool host leaders Manchester United at Anfield this Sunday with kickoff at 7: 30 pm.

The two most successful clubs in English football history occupy the two first positions in the table. The sides are separated by three points heading into the clash in a mouth-watering Merseyside clash.

It marks exactly two years since these two sides met when Mohamed Salah scored a last-minute goal to give Liverpool a real chance of lifting the title after decades of drought. Twelve months later, things are very different.

It is a shame no fans will be able to catch this heated contest between two of the best rivals in English football history. The victory sent Liverpool 16 points clear of second-placed Manchester City and a whopping 30 above Manchester United.

The first time the Red Devils have been on top of the league as 17 games of a season since Sir Alex Ferguson led them to their 20th title in the 2012-13 campaign. The tally was moved back by Liverpool in their previous trophy triumph.

The visitors will undoubtedly travel to Merseyside full of confidence if they come away with a statement-marking win. Their away form has been impressive, with their last win dating a year ago.
