English Premier League this week will witness the next chapter of inarguably the biggest rivalry in the league history. Perennial traditional rivals Manchester United and Liverpool face each other at Old Trafford on Sunday in a crucial match. United need a win to stay in charge of their top-four fortunes, while Liverpool need to stay ahead of Manchester City in the title race.
Manchester United Preview
United bounced back from the disappointment of a loss to PSG in the Champions League with a 2-0 win away at Chelsea. Caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has overseen nine matches unbeaten (W8, D1) since taking charge.
At home, the Red Devils have lost only once in the Premier League. They have won four of their last five league matches at home (W4, D1) and look to avenge a 3-1 loss in the reverse fixture.
Manchester United have won seven of their last nine home league matches against Liverpool (W7, D1, L1). With Arsenal and Chelsea hot on their trail in the top-four race, United can’t afford to drop points against their arch-rivals.
Liverpool were held to a goalless draw by Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday. This is their game in hand over Manchester City and they can take the outright lead at the top if they can pick up at least one point.
The Reds have won three of their last five league matches (W3, D2) after losing 2-1 to Manchester City. Away from home, Liverpool have won just one of their last three matches (W1, D1, L1) in the Premier League.
The visitors are winless in their last seven away matches against sides starting the day in the top-four of the Premier League. A win is crucial to keep hopes of title win, considering Manchester City are going neck-to-neck.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Paul Pogba has eight goals and five assists in his last nine Premier League games. A goal against Liverpool will make him the first United player to score in five home league games in a row since Robin van Persie in 2013.
Sadio Mane has scored in his last four Premier League matches. He could become the fifth Liverpool player to score in five league matches in a row.
Mohamed Salah has scored 49 Premier League goals in a Liverpool shirt. Should he score against United, Salah will have 50 in 63 games, making him the fastest player to do so.
