Manchester United vs Liverpool: Build-up
Manchester United host Liverpool in gameweek 3 of the Premier League on Monday. As always it is one of the most anticipated matches in the English league calendar. Both clubs did meet in pre-season, with Manchester United winning that match by a 4-0 margin. To add more flames to the fire, both clubs have had a horrible start to their 2022-23 Premier League campaign. Erik ten Hag’s team head into the clash off the back of two successive humiliating defeats in the league.
While Liverpool have only managed to draw their first two league fixtures. Jurgen Klopp’s men have also been hit with a number of injuries to key players. Club record signing Darwin Núñez has received a three-game ban and is ruled out of the clash. If Manchester United manage to beat Liverpool, they will go above them in the Premier League table. Last season Liverpool beat Manchester United 5-0 at Old Trafford and it was the start of the downfall of Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s reign. While during the 2020–21 season. The clash at Old Trafford had to be postponed due to a stadium invasion and subsequent pitch invasion by the Manchester United fans protesting against the Glazer ownership.
This season yet again, Manchester United fans are planning a walkout of the match against Liverpool in protest against the current owners. Taking all the points and situation into notice, it looks set to be another firey contest between the two long-standing rivals.
