Match preview

A strident Anfield atmosphere waits for to welcome old enemies Liverpool as well as Manchester United on Sunday afternoon - a renewal of hostilities with significant effects on the particular Premier League title and also top-four faces.

Both behemoths get in the face-off on a high, with the Reds seeing off Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 in the leading trip, while Erik 10 Hag's males came from behind to sink West Ham United 3-1 in the FA Mug.

While conferences between the acquainted faces of Liverpool and Manchester United are constantly excitedly prepared for, Liverpool as well as Wolves need to have been sick of the sight of each other by the time that Wednesday rolled about, as they participated in their 4th on-field battle because the turn of the year.

Adhering to a controversially refused goal for Darwin Nunez - with ex-Wolves man Diogo Jota ruled to have fouled Max Kilman - two quickfire Liverpool strikes from Virgil van Dijk as well as Mohamed Salah got Jurgen Klopp's side back on course complying with dissatisfactory outcomes versus Crystal Palace and Actual Madrid.

Slowly but certainly approaching the ranks and also threatening to distress the top-four apple cart, an extremely inconsistent Liverpool - who have simply 4 success to flaunt from their last 12 video games - have actually risen to 6th area in the table and also are 6 factors adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, albeit with a suit in hand.

Even with their powers subsiding, one constant that has not changed this season is Liverpool's Premier Organization document at Anfield, with the Reds shedding just one of their last 35 top-flight games before their very own supporters and also taking 13 factors from the last 15 available - maintaining clean sheets in their newest three such video games.

Keeping Wolves at bay made it four successive shutouts in the Premier League for Klopp's plant, who have actually also gone unbeaten in their last seven Anfield competitions against Big 6 sides, but taking a leaf out of Genuine Madrid's book would not go amiss for their title-challenging enemies.

Seeking to imitate Liverpool's EFL Mug as well as FA Cup double from the 2021-22 period, a Man United side that have actually already obtained their hands on the previous were at danger of collapsing back down to earth when Said Benrahma placed West Pork in advance in their FA Cup fifth-round connection.

However, a Nayef Aguerd own goal sparked a late rally from the Red Devils, that struck with Alejandro Garnacho and Fred in the dying coal to reserve a quarter-final day with Fulham as well as maintain their hopes of a Premier League, Europa League, FA Cup and also EFL Cup quadruple alive - Liverpool will be in no mood to provide any kind of pointers in that pursuit, though.

Not since placing Leicester City to the sword 3-0 have actually Male United required to the lend a hand the Premier League, yet their third-placed standing is still safe for the time being, and also each of their last four video games - all in four various events - have ended in victory.

For every one of Liverpool's staunch protective activity - domestically a minimum of - Guy United travel to Anfield having racked up at least twice in each of their last 12 games across all competitions, as well as their tally of 23 factors taken given that the World Mug is one of the most in the Premier Organization.

Nonetheless, instability on the road is still bedevilling the Red Devils - that have actually acknowledged extra Premier Organization goals (20) than they have actually scored (17) far from residence this period - as well as they have actually stopped working to beat a 'Huge Six' side in a Premier League away game in their last 7 attempts.

Following a trio of embarrassing defeats in which they acknowledged a minimum of 4 objectives each time, Man United ended their Liverpool hoodoo with a 2-1 win over the Reds at Old Trafford back in August, however not since the earliest days of Klopp's reign in January 2016 have they left Anfield with all three points in the bag - former Evertonian Wayne Rooney racking up the only goal that day.

Not a surprises must be sprung relating to Liverpool's injury scenario right here, with all of Thiago Alcantara, Luis Diaz, Joe Gomez and Calvin Ramsay set to miss out, while Naby Keita's knock will certainly require evaluating, but the future free agent was never ever most likely to make the initial XI right here.

Arthur Melo's wait for his maiden Premier League appearance additionally takes place as he accumulates his match health and fitness, yet Klopp is still faced with a variety of healthy choice dilemmas - none extra so than in strike, where Diogo Jota was a livewire versus Wolves yet may not be thought about for a third successive begin in the room of a week - ex-Man United target Cody Gakpo may consequently return.

Severe demotions can also come the way of Harvey Elliott and also Kostas Tsimikas as the knowledgeable pair of Andrew Robertson as well as Jordan Henderson return, while Salah is simply one goal far from equalling Robbie Fowler's all-time Premier League record of 128 for Liverpool.

Meanwhile, Guy United have several verified absentees of their own in Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek as well as Christian Eriksen, while Mason Greenwood is still not being considered for a go back to first-team activities either.

Neither Jadon Sancho (illness) nor Luke Shaw (knock) were associated with the FA Mug win over West Pork, however the duo must not be sidelined for long and will press to return for the trip to Old Trafford - the latter will certainly come in for Tyrell Malacia ought to he show his health and fitness.

Every One Of Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, Casemiro, Fred, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford are primed to go back to the first XI after being named on the bench in midweek, as the latter goals to end up being simply the 4th Man United gamer to rating in 6 succeeding Premier Organization games after Eric Cantona, Cristiano Ronaldo as well as Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Liverpool feasible beginning lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Bajcetic; Wrong, Gakpo, Nunez

Manchester United feasible starting schedule:
DeGea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Fred; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Weghorst

We claim: Liverpool 0-1 Manchester United
In spite of Liverpool's commendable residence document against Large 6 clothing in current memory, beating relegation-threatened Everton, 10-man Newcastle United as well as a goal-shy Wolves is not comparable to facing Man United, and their current touch of tidy sheets may not serve them well versus a Male United side with a penchant for multiple-goal showings.

Keeping up their two-goal streak may be too large a request Male United, but with each participant of their first-choice backline well-rested alongside the indispensable Casemiro and also Rashford, fresh legs might just work for Ten Hag's group.
