There aren’t many bigger games in the context of historical significance than the Manchester United and Liverpool game. The two most successful clubs in England always meet in a spectacle watched by millions around the globe.
Manchester United are not easily defeated at the Old Trafford. There are not many teams who have achieved the coveted feat in recent years. As a matter of fact, Liverpool have not registered a win at Old Trafford in almost 5 years. The last time they won on United’s turf was in March 2014, when they emerged victorious by a scoreline of 3-0.
If Liverpool are to win at the fortress of Manchester United, they will have to play at their very best. The Reds’ coach, Jurgen Klopp, acknowledges that too. The German said, ” It’s a big one. They are in a good moment, physically strong, defend and attack well. Full of confidence. We will try everything to get a result there.”
The visitors know that they can not afford to lose this clash as Manchester City are pouncing to get an advantage in the title race. Manchester United, on the other hand, have much to lose if they lost this match. Arsenal and Chelsea are only a point behind and any slipups could see one of those teams get in top 4.
Manchester United are on a good run recently and they have won 11 matches out of 13 since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over. The former Manchester United player has enthused new confidence in the team and the Red Devils look a tough opponent.
