Manchester United vs Liverpool
England – FA Cup
Date: Monday, 25 January 2021
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.
The Reds are going through one of their worst stretches in recent memory, and have been dropping points in the league at an alarming rate. A wide consensus is that their title defense is almost over, and now the actual grind would be to finish in the top four.
It’s no wonder that the plethora of injuries the team has suffered has come back to haunt them – especially the loss of Virgil Van Dijk.
Anyhow, this is welcome news for the rest of the title contenders in England, and especially for their arch-rivals – the Red Devils.
For the past few years, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men had grown tired of the dominance of Jurgen Klopp’s men, and now the time has come to settle scores.
The Reds are at their weakest, and as if it had been written in the stars – the Devils are the best team in England at the moment. They are at the top of the PL table, and have been in terrific form lately.
This is a great opportunity for Solskjaer’s men to script a famous win over their arch-rivals. Expect a Manchester United victory this Monday.
Manchester United vs Liverpool: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The previous three wins were recorded by Klopp’s men.
- They were unbeaten in 11 of the past 12 overall fixtures.
- It’s been six years since the hosts have lost at this venue.
- The home team had recorded 13 of the former 15 wins at this stadium.
Manchester United vs Liverpool Prediction
Klopp’s men are winless in their past five league games in a row, and they remained so in seven of their former ten overall fixtures.
They had also failed to score in their previous four PL games, and the only goals they have scored in 2021 so far have come against an injury-ridden Aston Villa, who had almost fielded their juniors.
On the road, they have won just twice since the first week of November, and one of these victories had come against the Villa.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 11 of their former 12 overall fixtures, and they had also won eight of these games.
At home, they had also won four of their past five appearances, and their sole loss during the stretch had come against Manchester City.
By the looks of things, expect the in-form Manchester United to defeat the struggling Liverpool this Monday at the Old Trafford.
