Manchester United vs Liverpool - 24/02/2019 Preview

Manchester United will face Liverpool at Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester, at 27th Round of English Premier League. Manchester United against Liverpool is always the match with big interest after their previous matches in English Premier League. Review our thoughts on this match here below.

 

Manchester United

Manchester United is looking great, despite the loss against Paris SG. They just search for the best football and need some time to stable their game. The team already stands at 4th position as they overtook Chelsea and Arsenal. In premier League now top teams are fighting in 2 different levels. Manchester City, Liverpool, and Tottenham are still fighting for the first place. While Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United fighting for the last place with promotion to Champions League. As a result, we see Red Devils better now and with bigger chances to get the ticket to Europe.

An. Valencia and M. Darmian will miss the next match, and that is a loss from the defensive flanks. Moreover, J. Lingard and A. Martial are doubtful but hopefully will join the team for this difficult match. Ole Solskjaer may start the match with the same first eleven that beat Chelsea with 2:0 result.

Manchester is very strong at shooting from direct free kicks, creating chances through individual skill, coming back from losing positions and attack down the wings. Very likely that in Old Trafford they will try to play possessional football. United have won 8 of their last 9 matches in Premier League. On average team scores 2 goals per game, pass with 82.9% accuracy and shots 13.9 times per game.

 

Liverpool

Liverpool now plays very beautiful and confident football. Win against Manchester will take them back to the first place of PL. They are a best defensive team in England this season, as they conceded only 15 goals in 26 matches. Liverpool lost only once in the road game and concede 8 goals in 13 matches. The Reds should prepare for the match strongly and show that they can be the winners of Premier League after a big break.

Central defender Joe Gomes will miss the match, moreover, Alex Chamberlain is out for a long time, and Dejan Lovren is doubtful. The best news is that Virgil van Dijk will return to Liverpool first eleven. In general, of course, the most important thing is that all three attacking players in Liverpool will be on the field and will show excellent football as always. M. Salah is repeating the last season and proves once again that he deserves the title of the best player in Europe.

This season Liverpool is great at finishing scoring chances, counter attacks, attacking and defending set pieces. Very likely that they will try to play accurate football, with short passes and counter-attacks down the wings.

 

H2H

These teams have met already in the middle of the season. Then Mourinho was the Head coach of Manchester, and Liverpool won at Anfield with 3:1 result. Liverpool controlled the game with 64% of possession and made 36 goal attempts, while United only 6.
