Man united vs Liverpool : Lineup | live score | Result
Manchester United will be going in search of their first victory of the season when they lock horns with arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Monday evening.
United, who beat a much-changed Liverpool side 4-0 in their pre-season opener in Bangkok last month, will be determined to bounce back from last Saturday’s 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Brentford and secure their first competitive win of the Erik ten Hag era.
Defeat in the capital left United bottom of the Premier League table, meaning they are already under intense pressure to get their campaign up and running.
Man united vs Liverpool Lineup
Arguably the biggest fixture on the English football calendar will take place in Manchester on Monday evening, as Manchester United welcome bitter rivals Liverpool to Old Trafford.
- Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia; Fernandes, Fred, Eriksen; Sancho, Ronaldo, Rashford
The Red Devils finished sixth last season, 13 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, which is an indication of the turnaround that needs to occur for the club to return to the Champions League spots; Casemiro’s arrival is a huge step in the right direction, but more signings are needed before the end of the window.
- Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Elliott, Fabinho, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Diaz
Man United were embarrassed by Liverpool in their two Premier League games last season, suffering a 5-0 loss at Old Trafford and 4-0 defeat at Anfield; Jurgen Klopp’s side have actually won each of their last three league meetings, with the Red Devils not beating their rivals in England’s top flight since March 2018.
Live scores will be updated once game kick start.
The Cristiano Ronaldo transfer saga continues to dominate the headlines, and it will be fascinating to see whether the Portugal international is again in the starting lineup for this match; the fixture could represent his final game for Man United at Old Trafford, with an exit before the end of the month still a huge possibility.
Such is the level that has been set by Liverpool and Manchester City in recent seasons, the back-to-back draws for the Reds at the start of the new Premier League season are far from ideal, especially considering that Man City have won their opening two matches and already sit four points ahead of the Merseyside giants.
Liverpool twice had to come from behind against Fulham on the opening weekend of the campaign to claim a point in a 2-2 draw, while they also conceded first against Crystal Palace on Monday through Wilfried Zaha, before Luis Diaz levelled the scores just before the hour.
Darwin Nunez picked up a red card in the match with Patrick Vieira’s side, ruling him out of the trip to Old Trafford, while the Reds have injury problems, and they need to be careful that Man City are not allowed to open up a healthy advantage in the early stages of the campaign.
Even a defeat on Monday would not make it panic stations for Liverpool, but Man City only dropped points in nine of their 38 Premier League matches last season, and two points from their opening three matches would be a poor return for Klopp’s team considering their level over the last few years.
While Man United have lost their last four Premier League matches, including their last two fixtures of the 2021-22 campaign, Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 21 league games; the statistics point to an away victory on Monday, but there are certain circumstances surrounding the match that will give Man United hope.
So wait and watch for this upcoming, exciting match-up .
