Man Utd vs. Liverpool: Preview
Man Utd bounced back from their defeat to PSG on Monday with a 0-2 win over Chelsea in the FA Cup. Herrera and Pogba were on target for the Reds who were missing both Lingard and Martial through injury.
It is expected that they won't play against Liverpool, although rumours have recently surfaced suggesting they may be deemed fit. If so, expect the odds to shift slightly.
Liverpool returned from their warm-weather break to play Bayern Munich in the Champions League mid-week. The match ended 0-0, with Liverpool only achieving two shots on target.
Although Liverpool are favourites to win this match, you can't ignore Solskjaer's current record of only one loss in thirteen games. His Man Utd have beaten Spurs, Arsenal and Chelsea and now he claims that beating Liverpool would make this Man Utd team “worthy of club history”.
Solskjaer also commented on Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial ahead of the match:
“Anthony will be OK. We still hope Jesse could be ready. Let’s see. We’ve still got a couple of days training left and they need to be part of it.”
Man Utd is the only team that Salah has not yet managed to net against since he arrived at Liverpool, but the Egyptian has his priorities set ahead of the clash:
“I hope I can score 50, 51, 52… but the most important thing is to win [our] game. We need to stay first in the table and that’s something very important for us.”
Michael Oliver will referee the match. He has currently dished out the same number of yellow cards (59) to both teams but four red cards to Man Utd compared to one red card to Liverpool, despite having officiated seven more Liverpool matches.
