Liverpool‘s recent run of games has been mixed in terms of results. They suffered a defeat against Real Madrid in the first leg of the Round of 16 in the Champions League, followed by a goalless draw against Crystal Palace and a 2-0 victory against Wolves in the Premier League. Their most recent win has propelled them to the sixth spot in the Premier League standings. To have a chance of competing for a place in the top 4, they must secure a win in their upcoming match against the in-form Manchester United.

In contrast, Manchester United is in red-hot form, having recently won their first trophy in six years by clinching the League Cup. In addition, they have progressed to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup after a victory against West Ham. They have also secured their place in the Round of 16 in the Europa League by defeating Barcelona in the playoffs. Currently sitting in the third position in the Premier League, Manchester United’s impressive form suggests that they will provide a tough challenge for Liverpool.

Player to watch

Liverpool: Mohamed Salah

After netting a goal against the Wolves earlier this week, Salah has now scored a total of 19 goals across all competitions this season. Despite not being in the best form, he remains a key player for Liverpool and will be eager to find the back of the net in their upcoming match against Manchester United.

Manchester United: Marcus Rashford

Throughout this season, Rashford has been Manchester United’s primary player, enjoying the best form of his career so far. He has already netted 25 goals across all competitions, including 14 in the Premier League. Given his exceptional form, the winger will undoubtedly be hoping to continue his golden streak and score against Liverpool.
