Manchester United hosts Liverpool at the Old Trafford in the big derby of the English Premier League. Now it’s time to preview this match in our soccer predictions for this week. Are you ready to start?
Manchester United approach this game from second place in the standings. The Red Devils are second in the league, but 10 points behind the leader Manchester City. This comes to tell us that United could hardly beat the Cityzens for the title. But what they can do is keep the second place as they have 5 points advantage in front of Leicester City.
For Manchester United this game comes just three days after facing Roma in Europa League. Because of this we expect to see the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rotating his line-up. Few of the players who got benched against Roma could start against Liverpool on Sunday. United’s chances of winning the title are very small, but beating Liverpool is always important for the club and the fans.
Liverpool’s situation is not the brightest as well because the Reds could be missing Champions League football next season. At this moment the current champions are 6th in the table with 54 points and this puts them 4 points behind the 4th Chelsea. Nobody expected such a slump in Jurgen Klopp’s team performance, but the truth is they got too many injuries during the campaign.
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last five games, but they made two draws in the last two. In the previous round the champions faced Newcastle United and only got a point after a 1-1 draw at the Anfield. Mohamed Salah scored an early opener for Liverpool, but Joseph Willock equalised in the 95th minute.
That’s our soccer predictions for this week for the Premier League derby between Manchester United and Liverpool. We are pretty sure it’s going to be a great game, so be sure to watch.
