Today, we have one of the most exciting match ups of the season due to the rivalry between both teams. Liverpool has been playing great football, winning 4 consecutive EPL matches. They’re currently ranked 4th overall in the standings, which is why they are favoured to win today’s contest. Manchester United drew against Stoke City at home 1-1. They’re currently ranked 7th overall in the standings but a win could help them climb into the top 5.
Jose Mourinho’s team hasn’t been playing up to par. Good news is Liverpool hasn’t registered a clean sheet this season. This definitely helps Manchester. The last two meetings between the two teams resulted in 2 wins for Manchester United. This year is a little different.Liverpool has been playing with an aggressive attack. Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have been impressive. Mourinho can’t get his team to play consistently. During the Stoke game, they played well for about 1/4 of the game, while the other 3/4 it didn’t seem like they were going score anything. Mourinho needs to find his best team sooner rather than later.
Knowing how aggressive Liverpool is offensively, I don’t know if Manchester can keep up. Although Manchester has history on its side, this year is different. I like Liverpool to get a convincing win at home.
Prediction: 3-1 Liverpool
