English Premier League: Manchester United vs Liverpool Match Preview
The English Premier League is slowly reaching such a stage where a win or loss could turn out to be crucial in the title race although we have a long way to go before we can think of the title at the moment. And the Manchester United vs Liverpool tie is one of those encounters which can provide the right momentum to either team which might just enable them to reach a better position as far as the title race is concerned.
The upcoming Manchester United vs Liverpool encounter is the return leg of the tie which is going to be held at the Old Trafford. The first tie at the Anfield ended with both teams sharing the honours as the fans witnessed a tactical stalemate. But this time the fans can expect an entirely different kind of an encounter as the scenario has changed a lot. Jose Mourinho’s side has managed to pick up a number of wins since that draw while Liverpool have also managed to reach the second spot on the table in the English Premier League 2016-17. Both the teams are on a role although Liverpool’s primary concern is going to be the sudden loss of form which has seen losing out points to lowly placed teams although they have managed to perform decently enough against the bigger names.
However, Liverpool will find it really difficult as the 75k strong crowd at the Old Trafford will be right behind the home side. In recent days Liverpool have found it difficult to force a result in their favour here at the Old Trafford. Also, Manchester United have shown some good form lately. So fans across the world should be ready for a fierce battle between two of England’s most coveted football club.
Yet another interesting clash that all the football fans across the world would come across is the one between Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp. Both the managers have been phenomenal over the years and are new to their respective clubs. While Mourinho is more experienced than Klopp as far as the English Premier League is concerned, things are not going to be easy for United manager. Klopp is one of those managers who enjoy a better head-to-head record against Mourinho. Klopp has lost one once in the six meetings they have had over the years winning 3 of those. Mourinho has managed to win only one out of those six. So things are going to be really interesting when Manchester United meet Liverpool at the Old Trafford as the Mourino will face an uphill task to put up a solid performance against Klopp’s tactical moves.
English Premier League: Liverpool vs Manchester United Team News
Liverpool will be boosted by the return of their talismanic Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho. Coutinho was the star performer for Liverpool when these two teams met each other last time round in the English Premier League 2016-17. James Milner is also expected to make a return to the first although concerns are still there regarding the availability of Jordan Henderson and Joel Matip. Jrgen Klopp will miss the services of Sadio Mane who would be away for the national duty in the Africa Nations Cup.
Manchester United do not have any worry as far as injuries are concerned as Jose Mourinho has got the luxury of a fully-fit squad to choose from while deciding the final playing eleven. It has been reported that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be making a comeback to the playing eleven after being rested for the midweek EFL Cup tie against Hull City. Wayne Rooney will also be in contention for a place in the first eleven. However, Mourinho has got a tough puzzle to solve, but he will definitely enjoy such a problem to have. This is because he will have to choose between Martial, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford regarding who will start in the attacking line-up beside Ibra and Mkhitaryan against the upcoming Manchester United vs Liverpool encounter in the English Premier League. United will also be without the service of Eric Bailly because of his national duty in the Africa Nations Cup. So expectations are high that Mourinho will hand a first eleven start to Chris Smalling alongside Phil Jones in the central defence.
Manchester United (probable line-up): De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Blind, Herrera, Carrick, Pogba, Mkhitaryan, Martial, Ibrahimovic
Liverpool (probable line-up): Mignolet, Clyne, Klavan, Lovren, Milner, Lallana, Can, Henderson, Coutinho, Mane, Firmino
