United’s woes seem to have no boundaries. Last season, they finished the league with their worst point tally in EPL history. This season, after playing against Brentford and Bournemouth, they defeated both matches while they have yet to open their scoring chart. As a result, they sit at the bottom of the league.
Erik ten Hag took charge of the club, however, a lack of business in the transfer window so far didn’t help the club. They indeed signed Casemiro and are in a talk with Ajax to sign Brazilian winger Antony. Liverpool is the bitter rival of the Red Devils and it would be best for them if they can beat the Allreds.
Under Klopp, Liverpool became the team that they once were. After waiting for 30 years, they won the premier league in 2020. In the last season, they played on all fronts till the last day nonetheless they lost the UCL final to Real Madrid and Man City became victorious in the league competition by a mere one point.
However, Allred started this season on a poor note. A hard-fought draw against Fulham and another disappointing game against Crystal Palace saw Liverpool earn just 2 points from the opening two games. Therefore, it’s a must-win game for them too to get the mojo back.
