Match Preview

This is a huge game for both sides and will be a tough fixture with both sides missing key players. Liverpool are already 7 points and 5 places behind today’s opponents after struggling for form. The side sits 7th in the table on 12 points after 7 league games with a goal difference of +1. They have failed to address their defensive concerns and the lack of form for both Sturridge and Firmino is blunting their impressive attack. They have drawn 3 and won just 1 of their last 4 fixtures, that was courtesy of a missed Vardy penalty at Leicester. Mane was injured on international duty and could be out of 6 weeks. He will join Clyne and Lallana who are also sidelined for this fixture. They are yet to lose at Anfield this season with 2 wins and a draw, scoring 6 goals and conceding just once. It’s likely Salah will be the most dangerous on the break for Liverpool, especially against a reasonably slow back line. Coutinho will need to be instrumental here and his 2 goals have showed that he will still put in a performance for this Liverpool side. They’ve scored 13 and conceded 12 this season, those 2 clean sheets coming at home. This is Man United’s first real test this season and come into the game having won the last 5 consecutive fixtures. They are 2nd in the able on goal difference with 19 points from a possible 21.  They are missing a raft of key players including Fellaini, Carrick, Pogba, Zlatan and Rojo. Lukaku has a slight knock but is expected to feature here. They’ve not struggled for goals with all of their forwards pitching in. The side has scored 4 goals in 4 out of their last 5 competitive fixtures. Away from home they have won 2 and drawn 1. The win over Southampton was tight but they got the job done, the draw at Stoke was disappointing, and the win over Swansea emphatic. They’ve scored 7 goals in 3 away league fixtures and have conceded 2, both in the draw against Stoke. 2 clean sheets and an average of 3 goals per game. This will likely be tight. Man United have the much better form, Liverpool have the home advantage. Mourinho may sit back and frustrate Liverpool just has he did last season, this year they have the attacking options to make it count.
