Liverpool vs. Manchester United: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool will be confident of inflicting more misery on Manchester United and their under fire manager Erik ten Haag when the two sides meet on Sunday.

Liverpool moved top of the Premier League last weekend when they recovered from a goal down to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park.

The game turned on a Jordan Ayew red card with Palace leading 1-0 at the time, with Mohamed Salah and Harvey Elliott scoring late goals.

Manchester United were embarrassed 3-0 at home by Bournemouth last weekend, their seventh league loss in just 16 matches.

Their week went from bad to worse when they were eliminated from European competition on Tuesday evening, losing 1-0 at home to Bayern Munich, meaning they finished bottom of their Champions League group.
