Manchester United vs Liverpool Match Analysis and Prediction

Dethroned Champions Liverpool battle it out for a Europa League spot when they travel to take on Manchester United in the rescheduled encounter. The match schedules for Thursday at Old Trafford with kickoff at 10:15 pm.

City fans were full of smiles last time out when Leicester City sealed the victory against the Red Devils to lift the Premier League trophy. However, man United remain on course to finish in second place.

On the other hand, they might have fallen as Jurgen Klopp’s team fight for a spot in the Europa League. Instead, a 2-0 win over Southampton boosted their chances of a top-four finish.
