Liverpool - Manchester United Prediction and Analysis
The key match of the 26th round in the English Premier League will be at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
Where local Liverpool host Manchester United.
It is one of the greatest rivalries in the history of English football.
At the present moment, it will have an even greater charge.
As the two teams are pursuing different goals but have been playing strong lately.
After a poor start to this season, Poole gradually began to find his best form .
And at the moment they are only 6 points away from the Top 4.
Which is downright fantastic for them, given where they were in the rankings around Christmas.
Man United managed to break into the Top 3.
And they still haven't lost hope for the title, despite their serious lag behind the leader Arsenal.
The Merseysiders have a unique record - only 1 loss in their last 35 home games in the Premier League.
But the Red Devils are in very good current form – 9 wins and 2 draws in the last 11 matches.
It's as if the powers at this stage are even. And my prediction is to bet on an "X" here.
Moreover, the tie is missing in the last 6 editions of this derby, in which both teams won 3 times.
Liverpool are unbeaten in 4 games (3-1-0)
Liverpool had no chance at Selhurst Park last weekend. When they hit the crossbar in the goalless draw against Crystal Palace.
But they then got revenge in front of their fans, winning 2-0 in the postponed game against Wolves at Anfield on Wednesday.
In this way, the team led by Jurgen Klopp entered a strong series of matches in the English Premier League.
Poole are unbeaten in their last 4 Premier League games. By earning 10 points in that span (3-1-0).
Liverpool are on a run of 4 clean sheets
What Jurgen Klopp is perhaps most happy about is that in all 4 meetings his wards kept a clean sheet.
Something that was rare for most of the season.
And that's exactly where the problems came from for Poole in the opening stages of the 2022/23 campaign.
Manchester United won a trophy
6 months ago Man United suffered embarrassing losses to Brighton and Brentford at the start of the season.
And then few would have imagined the rapid transformation that took place in the team under the leadership of Eric ten Haag.
But he led the club to its first trophy after a 6 year drought.
Which became a fact after success in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday against Newcastle.
Man United are hungry for more titles
Ten Hag has restored the faith of the Old Trafford fans. And now they hope that their favorites will start a new era with success.
The Dutchman is tasked with keeping alive their audacious hopes of winning four trophies this season.
Just a few days ago, Manchester United advanced to the FA Cup after producing a complete turnaround against West Ham.
Mohamed Salah is just one goal away from equaling Robbie Fowler's all-time Premier League record of 128 goals for Liverpool.
Marcus Rashford will aim to become only the 4th Man United player to score in 6 consecutive Premier League games after Cantona, Ronaldo and Van Nistelrooy.
