Manchester United face a daunting task as they welcome a rampant Liverpool side led by in-form Egyptian forward, Mohammed Salah to Old Trafford in a 4.30 pm Super Sunday clash.
The Red Devils also have injury doubts to worry about, as Bruno Fernandes, Marcos Rashford and Fred could all miss out.
The Reds have been in riotous form, scoring at least three goals in eight of their last nine matches in all competitions, while their opponents have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last nine home matches in the league.
Salah has led from the front this season, leading the goal chart with seven goals in eight games, while assisting four times. Salah dubbed ” The Egyptian King” by the Anfield faithful has also been explosive in the Champions League, scoring five goals in three matches so far.
Liverpool have been impressive so far sitting 2nd on the Premier League log with 18 points from eight games ( 5W 3D 0L), winning their three Champions Leagues ties, leading Group B with a maximum nine points so far, while their North-West rivals have had a topsy-turvy season, leading their champions league group with six points, but the Red Devils sit a disappointing sixth on the PL log with 14 points ( 4W 2D 2L).
The Red Devils have been found wanting defensively, conceding ten goals in eight games, recently highlighted in the 4-2 loss to Leicester City on Matchday 8, and could be in for a tough afternoon against Liverpool’s in-form attackers.
Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates scoring in Manchester United’s 3-2 win against Atalanta.
Both teams recorded impressive wins in the Champions League, Liverpool sealed a 3-2 victory over Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano despite throwing away a 2-goal lead, with Griezmann seeing red after scoring a brace, Man United showed resilience as they fought from two goals down to win 3-2 against Atalanta at Old Trafford, with Ronaldo popping up with a late winner.
Liverpool have the upper hand against Man United in recent meetings losing just once in their last ten matches, but form goes out the window when these two rivals clash.
