The oldest and most glamorous derby of England is back here! Today Manchester United is going to host Liverpool at the “Theatre of Dreams”. The match is set to start at 16:30 GMT 0.
Can Manchester United handle the derby match
Allfootballpredictions has discussed Man Utd performances many times before this season but let’s summarize what we could expect from the Red Devils. There is no doubt that the team plays miserable football and a few of even the most hardcore fans of United can expect a win over the eternal rivals of Liverpool. Anyway, that is a derby match and all outcomes are possible. That’s why our team is going to view this match under a different angle – the perspective of scoring goals on behalf of both teams.
What’s next after the 8 wins in a row for Liverpool
Man United will accept the draw as a satisfactory result. The same is valid for Liverpool considering its flawless form so far. It is more than obvious that there won’t be many goals in this match as United does not have the resources to score more than 1 goal in this match. On the other side, Liverpool will not give too many free spaces to United and instead will prefer firstly to secure their defense. United desperately needs a creative midfielder and a striker with a constant form. They do not own them at this particular moment, unfortunately. All Liverpool needs is to maintain their excellent form as City already made some mistakes before their direct match. Considering all of this and the potential absences of Pogba and Martial, the attacking potential of United is hardly damaged. Perhaps Liverpool could take the 3 points today but it is far easier to predict that the match will be under.
