Manchester United vs. Liverpool Match Analysis and Prediction

All roads will be headed to Old Trafford this weekend when the win-starved Manchester United takes on Liverpool in their Premier League derby. This much-awaited fixture will take place on Sunday 20th October 2019. The match is scheduled to start at 16:30 GMT.

The Red Devils have had a shaky season with just 2 points to spare from the relegation zone. In their last match before the international break, the Red Devils had an unimpressive match when they lost 1-0 to Newcastle. Seeing that they will be facing the fired up Reds and knowing that they will be playing without their key midfielder, Paul Pogpa, Manchester United are thus geared to a rough Sunday.

The Reds had a flying start to the season and nothing seems to contain them sooner. They will be looking to keep their 2019/2020 record clear when they travel to the “Theatre of Dreams”. Liverpool will have a boast owing to the fact that Mohamed Saleh is expected to have recovered by then and ready to test the ground at Old Trafford. Jugen Klopp’s troops did well to beat Leicester City 2-1 in their last premier league match at Anfield.

Jugen Klopp’s men seem unstoppable currently and seeing that Manchester United only depends on a random whim of fate to win their matches, we believe that the Reds are geared for a great Sunday. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops had a very slow start to the season and lack proper coordination and confluence and readiness to score, we believe that they stand little or no chance against Liverpool. We thus believe there is great value in betting for the travelers to win the fixture.

Team News

The injury-threatened Manchester United expects Luke Shaw and Phil Jones to have recovered in time to play home. However, they will miss the services of most of their key players such as Paul Pogba (ankle injury), Eric Bailly Bertrand (knee), Anthony Martial (thigh), David De Gea (leg) and Jesse Lingard (hamstring).

Liverpool will be more than happy to welcome Mohamed Saleh back after nursing his ankle injury. Alisson who has been seen back in training will also be in good form for the match. However, the services of Nathaniel Clyne, Xherdan Shaqiri and Joel Matip will be missed due to injuries.
