Manchester United are playing at home against Liverpool in a match of round 27 of the English Premier League. The Red Devils are outsiders according to the bookmakers, although they are in good form.
The last week Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s team failed on the European scene against PSG, but several days later the young manager refuted his momentary criticism with success over Chelsea for FA Cup. His colleague Jurgen Klopp also didn’t start the spring with a victory in the Champions League, which wouldn’t be underserved in the game versus Bayern Munich at home. This match was a confirmation of the busy schedule and the difficulty in the attack in the past weeks of The Reds.
Both sides need the three points, which will make them more cautious in defence. Liverpool are the favourite and undoubtedly have a more skilled and quality squad, but hosts have David de Gea and Paul Pogba, who are in a fantastic form. The forwards of both teams look respectful, but we think that the defences will prevail in this dispute.
