Premier League

Opinion - Man United vs Liverpool preview and prediction

One of the standout fixtures of game week nine (9) will take place on Sunday evening as Liverpool travel to Old Trafford to face Man United. Both teams were in action in mid week for the Champions league as Liverpool and Man United beat Atletico Madrid and Atalanta respectively.

Man United are currently on a poor run of form in the league heading into this fixture as they are winless in their last three games losing two and drawing one. However, in the Champions league, they came from 2-0 down at half time to beat Atalanta courtesy of goals from Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo.

They are currently sixth (6) in the premier league table due to a devastating 4-2 defeat against Leicester at the King Power stadium last time out. They'll be seeking to get back to winning ways against Liverpool, as a defeat will inflict more pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Liverpool meanwhile beat Atletico Madrid in the Champions league 3-2 at the Metropolitano stadium to remain top of their group.Mohammed Salah scored a brace in that game and he has currently been Liverpool's inspiration to success so far this season. In what was a dominant performance at Vicarge Road, they cruised past Watford 5-0 to sit second in the premier league table. 

The corresponding fixture last season ended in a 4-2 Liverpool win. The last time Man United beat Liverpool on home soil was in the 2018/2019 Premier league season when Jose Mourinho was still in charge. Also, before last season's Liverpool win, they last beat Man United at Old Trafford in the 2013/2014 Premier league season.

Score Prediction: Man United 3-1 Liverpool

Normally, Liverpool are the likely winners of this fixture. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have been known to get incredible result when his job is under speculations. Despite the fact that Man United will struggle in that game, I fancy Man United to inflict Liverpool's first EPL defeat of the season.
