MUFC VS LIV: 3 Things To Expect From Man United Clash Against Liverpool Tomorrow

Manchester United will be clashing against Liverpool at Old Trafford tomorrow, as the Reds and the Red Devils will face each other, for the continuation of their Premier League fixtures for 2020-2021. However, it's not going to be an easy match for the two sides, because they are both hoping to win the EPL title this campaign. As a result, it's going to be an interesting game tomorrow, at 6:30pm in the evening.

Meanwhile, there are three things to expect from the match tomorrow, mainly because Manchester United and Liverpool don't usually go easy on each other. Statistically, the Ole Gunnar Solskjær's men only had one win in their last five meetings against the Reds, while the Jurgen Klopp's men had two wins. With that being said, it's obvious that one of these three things below would happen at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah would want to score. 

Apparently, both the Portuguese and the Egyptian are scoring for fun this season, which means they will want to score a goal on Sunday. Mohamed Salah has been involved in 7 Premier League goals, while Cristiano Ronaldo already has 3. With that being said, both players will look dangerous and hungry against the opponent at Old Trafford. In addition, the Egyptian has been making waves since the beginning of the season, as regards his performance against Atletico Madrid, Watford and the rest. Meanwhile, the Ballon D'or winner has been the Red Devils' messiah for this campaign, and that's the main reason they will both play to score tomorrow evening. Salah and Ronaldo are goal-driven, so it's understandable to expect that they will want to score against each other on Sunday. 

Manchester United will play defensively.

In the absence of Raphael Varane, the Ole Gunnar Solskjær's men will play to defend, because Harry Maguire can not handle Liverpool's frontline alone. Apparently, the Reds' front-three are very dangerous this season, having seen how they played 2-2 against Manchester City. As a result, Manchester United wouldn't want to open their defense line, because of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. That being said, the Norwegian manager could play two defensive midfielders, with Bruno Fernandes as an attacking midfielder. As a result, the DM will retreat to protect their defense line in the event of a Liverpool counterattack. Since the Red Devils' backline has been a little bit sloppy recently, they would plan to play a defensive game, so as to accommodate the Jurgen Klopp's men pressure. 

Jurgen Klopp could start Diogo Jota ahead of Roberto Firmino.

Another thing to expect at Old Trafford tomorrow is the Portuguese starting ahead of the Brazilian, for Liverpool to be more clinical against Manchester United. Jurgen Klopp would definitely want to seize the opportunity of the Red Devils' imbalanced defense line, as he knows Aaron Wan-bissaka won't be able to handle Sadio Mane, and Maguire+Lindelof will struggle with Salah. As a result, Diogo Jota will play because he's more dangerous than Firmino against high-level defensive setups. Of course, the Portuguese may not even score tomorrow, but the German manager believes he's able to frustrate Manchester United at the back, which will result to creating chances for his wingers.
