Manchester United vs. Liverpool: Premier League – Match Preview

Manchester United will be looking to avoid further humiliation when they host Liverpool in the Monday evening Premier League fixture.

United sit bottom of the Premier League having suffered back to back losses, including an embarrassing 4-0 defeat at Brentford last time out.

Brentford battered Erik ten Haag’s men from the off and all four goals came in a 25 minute window in the first half.

Liverpool themselves have yet to win this league campaign, opening with frustrating back to back draws.

They were held at Anfield by Crystal Palace on Monday, with Luis Diaz cancelling out Wilfried Zaha’s opener.

Team news
Lisandro Martinez and Luke Shaw were both dragged at half-time in the Brentford humiliation and it’s probable neither start here.

Bruno Fernandes has made an awful start to the campaign and there is a chance he is dropped here with more defensively minded options preferred.

Darwin Nunez will start a three game ban following his ridiculous red card in the draw with Crystal Palace, meaning Roberto Firmino may be rushed back.

Joe Gomez will likely start in defence, with both Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate ruled out of the trip to Old Trafford.

Expected starting XI’s
Manchester United (4-3-3): De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Malacia; McTominay, Fred, Eriksen; Sancho, Ronaldo, Rashford
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Diaz


Result: Liverpool
Have you seen Manchester United?

Correct Score: 0-3
Hard to see United being as bad again, but even so a comfortable win for Liverpool is probable

Anytime Goalscorer: Mohamed Salah
He scored five in the two meetings last year, he’s going to score again isn’t he
