Manchester United will welcome Liverpool at Old Trafford

Man­ches­ter United have just won one of their last 10 Pre­mier league meet­ings with Liv­er­pool, loos­ing this ex­act fix­ture 4-2 last sea­son. Fol­low­ing their 4-2 win at Old Traf­ford in May.


Liver­pool is look­ing to se­cure con­sec­u­tive league vic­to­ries at Old Traf­ford for the first time since 2002. The last team to score 4+ goals in con­sec­u­tive top-flight vis­its to Old Traf­ford was Burn­ley in 1961-62.


Liv­er­pool are un­beaten in their last 25 Pre­mier League matches against “United” teams since los­ing 2-1 away to Man­ches­ter United in March 2018. Should they avoid de­feat on Sun­day evening, it would be the joint-longest un­beaten run against “United” teams. On the other hand, Man­ches­ter United is with­out a clean sheet in any of their last nine home league matches.


Mean­while, Liv­er­pool is un­beaten in 18 league games, the longest cur­rent run in the top four tiers of Eng­lish foot­ball. And away from home, the Reds have scored at least three goals in each of their last five Pre­mier League games.


How­ever, it is hard to fathom a sit­u­a­tion where one of these teams is not chas­ing the game at some stage as both, on cur­rent form, stand a much bet­ter chance of win­ning foot­ball matches by outscor­ing the op­po­si­tion rather than re­ly­ing on their de­fence.


This will be the tip­ping point for Ole Gun­nar Sol­sk­jaer and his fu­ture at the club. Sol­sk­jaer’s side, who face the Reds on Su­per Sun­day, are al­ready five points off lead­ers Chelsea af­ter eight games, and have not won in their last three top-flight fix­tures, with just one clean sheet to show from their last 13 games.
