The match at Old Trafford is crucial for both sides, and United will still be haunted by last season’s 5-0 defeat, and a 4-0 loss at Anfield.
A 4-0 win in pre-season doesn’t count for much, but psychologically it will give this side belief that the team can get all three points tonight.
Man United vs Liverpool Prediction
As for United, it will be bolstered by the return of French striker Anthony Martial, who suffered a hamstring niggle and missed the opening two matches of the season.
In contrast, defender Harry Maguire could be replaced by Raphael Varane, while Tyrell Malacia might get the nod ahead of Luke Shaw.
However, a who-scale change is unlikely from the Red Devils’ head coach Erik ten Hag, with Fred, Bruno Fernandes and Christian Eriksen likely to start in the midfield.
In contrast, Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Cristiano Ronaldo start in forward. Brandon Williams, Facundo Pellistri and Victor Lindelof are likely on the bench.
Considering Liverpool, Roberto Firmino is back and could replace Darwin Nunez, with the latter being suspended. Naby Keita is also back after illness, while Joel Matip, Thiago Alcantara, Ibrahima Konate, Curtis Jones, Diogo Jota, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsay and Caoimhin Kelleher remain injured.
Joe Gomez could start for The Reds, with skipper Jordan Henderson also expected to return. Luis Díaz and Mohamed Salah will headline the forward line-up, while Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson will dominate in the defence.
Manchester United’s devastating start doesn’t get any easier as they get set to host rival Liverpool on Monday at Old Trafford. A humiliating 4-0 loss to Brentford last Saturday raised major alarms for Manchester United, coming on the heels of a 2-1 setback to Brighton in the opener. Liverpool also are off to a tough start after finishing just one point behind champion Manchester City last season. They opened with a 2-2 draw with Fulham before being held 1-1 by Crystal Palace on Monday.
The Reds are hoping their talented attack can overwhelm the floundering Manchester United defense, but United will have a real sense of desperation and the backing of the Old Trafford faithful.
Liverpool have won three straight against the Red Devils, including a 5-0 victory in their meeting in Manchester last October.
