One of the biggest fixtures in world football takes place tomorrow at Anfield when Liverpool host Manchester United.
Both teams are in good form. United most recently won 3-1 against West Ham in the FA Cup after late goals from Alejandro Garnacho and Fred sent them through to the Quarter-finals. Also, last weekend saw Manchester United win their first trophy in 7 years winning the Carabao Cup in a comfortable and dominant 2-0 victory against Newcastle at Wembley Stadium.
United sit 10 points ahead of Liverpool with both teams playing the same amount of games. Coming off 8 games without a loss United are in great form emphasising their consistency all season.
In the reverse fixture at Old Trafford, Liverpool looked easy to play against and lost 2-1. However, besides the disappointing defeat to Real Madrid, Liverpool haven’t lost in their last 4 games keeping a clean sheet in them all.
Although Liverpool did not play the most exhilarating football in these games, they showed defensive solidity and other positives were on display, such as Núñez and Van Dijk finding form.
Liverpool look up for challenge and are more than capable of damaging Manchester United’s title hopes. United have failed to win at Anfield in 6 years.
Liverpool will still only be without Luiz Diaz, Thiago Alcantara and Joe Gomez whilst Man United will be without Donny Van de Beek, Christian Eriksen and Anthony Martial. Luke Shaw and Jadon Sancho are doubts.
