Premier League: Manchester United vs Liverpool preview


Manchester United and Liverpool star in a new edition of the North-WestDerby when they clash on Sunday at Old Trafford. The reverse fixture in October ended 0-0, while earlier last year the two teams met in the Europa League and Liverpool pulled through with a 2-0 home win after a 1-1 draw in the first leg. Liverpool have not won at Old Trafford since 2014, when former captain Steven Gerrard scored twice in a 3-0 victory.

Manchester United are on a hot streak, they have not lost a Premier League match since October, when Chelsea defeated them 4-0. They have won their last nine matches in all competitions, including this week's 2-0 victory over Hull City in the League Cup semi-finals. Zlatan Ibrahimovic was not able to play in that match due to illness but he is expected to recover before Sunday's big match. Eric Bailly is away on international duty, while Marcos Rojo has a slight muscular injury.

Liverpool got beaten 1-0 by Southampton in the League Cup semi-final this week, that was the third competitive match without a win for the Reds and the second consecutive match in which they were unable to score. The good news is that Philippe Coutinho finally made his return from injury, he played for 30 minutes against the Saints and is expected to be in the starting line-up for the derby. Sadio Mane is away at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Probable line-ups:

Man United: De Gea - Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Darmian - Herrera, Carrick - Mkhitaryan, Pogba, Young - Ibrahimovic

Liverpool: Mignolet - Clyne, Lovren, Klavan, Milner - Lallana, Henderson, Can - Firmino, Origi, Coutinho

My prediction: 1-1 draw.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Man United win - 2.15
Draw - 3.40
Liverpool win - 3.75

    I saw just the first half but from what I've seen then and the highlights, I could say that it wasn't heck of a game, certainly below expectations.
    First half Pogba by far was the worst player on the field and had really great issues defensively marking Lovren in a set pieces situations.
    He handed the ball for the Liverpool penalty, missed United most clear chance in attack and as a whole he played like a player which doesn't cost a penny not a hundred mill...
    But as a whole United weren't good enough to beat Liverpool and I think the draw was fair result.
