Liverpool vs Manchester United, LIV vs MUN Live in the Premier League, Squad News, Predicted Line Up, Dream 11 Prediction, follow for Live Updates. The most fiercely contested rivalry in the Premier League is here with the Reds and the Red Devils locking horns.
Liverpool will be playing Manchester United at 12:30 AM (IST). The game will be played on 20th April 2022 at the Anfield stadium.
The match will be available for the viewers on the Star Network. It will also be streamed LIVE on Jio TV and on the Disney+ Hotstar application.
Although the Reds have managed to widen the gap to the Red Devils, however, they are aware that Manchester United can still hurt them. Jurgen Klopp’s side are still very much in the title race. Manchester United despite their poor form are capable of hurting the Reds’ chances of a league title. The Reds are likely to be at the top of their game.
While Ralf Ragnick’s side despite not being at their best will hope that they can turn things around this season. They are very much alive in the race for the top four after slip-ups from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. A major concern for the Red Devils will be their defence. Even Norwich City who have the lowest tally of 22 goals in this Premier League managed to score two past them on the weekend.
Considering their defensive woes, Ralf Ragnick would unlikely want to give more space to Liverpool attackers. They will try to sit in a low block and try to hit on counterattacks. While the Reds will try to press them higher up the pitch and swing in crosses inside the box to create chances. The likes of Mohammad Salah and Saido Mane will also try to run at the United fullback and further push them back.
Currently, Jurgen Klopp has no injury or suspension concerns ahead of the game. He has a fully fit squad available at his disposal.
Things don’t look very good for the away side. They will be without Edison Cavani, Raphael Varane, Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay and Fred. While Burno Fernandes is available for the game.
Liverpool: Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota.
Manchester United: David De Gea; Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Alex Telles; Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic; Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford; Cristiano Ronaldo.
The two Germans have faced each other 13 times. Out of the 13 times, Klopp has won only twice. While Ragnick has won six times. The rest of the five games ended in a stalemate.
The former Southampton winger will be keen to continue his goalscoring streak. He has recently been in fine form. Thus considering the Red Devils’ defence, Mane based on current form is very much capable of opening them time and again.
The Red Devils will be hopeful that the Spaniard can produce a performance where he was almost unbeatable. With Maguire’s poor form, De Gea will have to be the defensive linchpin for his side. Till the time they don’t concede they will be very much in the game as Cristiano Ronaldo is very much capable of getting them a goal. Thus keeping the defence tight will be the priority.
Goalkeeper: David De Gea
Defenders: Trent Alexander Arnold, Virgil Van Dijk, Alex Telles, Diogo Dalot.
Midifelders: Jadon Sancho, Sadio Mane, Thiago Alcantara, Fabiano,. Burno Fernandes
