Whatever happens, you just know Jurgen Klopp’s side will outwork United at the very least. Maybe United’s players will run around a little bit more this week than they did against Brentford, but they need to find some heart. Unless something happens this week that triggers a change in attitude in the squad, I don’t see it happening. The home crowd will be willing them to take the game to Liverpool, and if they do that then they are in big trouble because that’s when Klopp’s side are at their best. They won 5-0 at Old Trafford last season and it is going to be a similar story this time, although I am going to give United a goal just to lift their spirits a little. Mohamed Salah is adamant Manchester United versus Liverpool retains its illustrious status in spite of their indifferent starts to the Premier League campaign.
Liverpool and United go in search of their first victory of the season when English football’s most-decorated clubs renew their rivalry at Old Trafford on Monday Night Football – live on Sky Sports. After Monday’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace and opening-day draw at Fulham, Liverpool have failed to win either of their first two Premier League matches for the first time since 2012. United, meanwhile, go into the weekend in unfamiliar territory, sat bottom of the Premier League having lost their opening two games for the first time since the inaugural season in 1992/93. Despite this, Salah insists a fixture of such magnitude will never lose its cachet and is relishing another special occasion under the lights at the Theatre of Dreams.
“Manchester United is always a special game for the city, for the fans and for everyone around the world,” he exclusively told Soccer Saturday. “Maybe the biggest two teams in England history-wise, so I think it’s a special game for everybody. “United, City, Chelsea, Arsenal – these top teams, you always want to play against them. It’s always going to be a derby. That competition between Liverpool and Manchester United is always going to be there because we’ve won the league a few times, they’ve won the league a few times. Arguably the biggest fixture on the English football calendar will take place in Manchester on Monday evening, as Manchester United welcome bitter rivals Liverpool to Old Trafford. Man United are currently bottom of the Premier League table, having lost their opening two matches to Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford, while last season’s runners-up Liverpool are 12th, having drawn their first two games of the campaign against Fulham and Crystal Palace. Erik ten Hag would have been under no illusions as to the size of the task facing him at Old Trafford when he took the job in May,
but the reality of the situation has become even more apparent to the 52-year-old in the early stages of his reign as Red Devils boss. Man United opened their 2022-23 Premier League campaign with a 2-1 home defeat to Brighton on August 7 before suffering a shock 4-0 defeat at Brentford last weekend, with all of the home side’s goals coming in the first half of the contest. The two defeats, coupled with the already-poor goal difference, has left the Red Devils at the bottom of the division, and another loss on Monday evening would lead to more pressure on Ten Hag, who has been tasked with helping to rebuild arguably the biggest football club on the planet.
Manchester United may be able to welcome back Anthony Martial, who is training after a thigh injury. Victor Lindelof is still unavailable, as is young winger Facundo Pellistri because of an ankle issue. Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez begins a three-match ban for his headbutt during the draw against Crystal Palace last Monday night. The Reds are boosted by the return of Roberto Firmino but Thiago, Diogo Jota and Joel Matip remain out. If Manchester United win this game, they leapfrog Liverpool in the table, but that is not going to happen. United aren’t able to press teams with the players they have got, and I don’t really know what Erik ten Hag can change with what he has got in his squad. Liverpool have started slowly too, and Darwin Nunez’s suspension won’t help on top of their injuries. That leaves them a bit short up front, although Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz looked lively against Palace.
