On Monday night, Manchester United will face off against rival Liverpool to continue their Premier League assault.
Erik ten Hag and his United teammates were humiliated against Brentford, their next opponents, and things won’t get any easier for them at Old Trafford after being beaten by Brighton on the first day of the season. However, their rivals have yet to record their first triumph of the year.
With two wins in as many games, Jurgen Klopp and his talented but injured Liverpool team cross the M62. What the experts predict will occur on Monday night is listed below (8pm).
In his most recent BBC Sport column, analyst Sutton wrote: “Manchester United would overtake Liverpool in the standings if they won this game, but that is not likely to happen. With the players they have, United can’t press opponents, and I’m not sure what Erik ten Hag can do to change things with his current roster.
In addition to their injuries, Darwin Nunez’s ban won’t help Liverpool, who have also started off badly. They are quite lacking in the front, despite the fact that Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah appeared active against Palace.
“Whatever happens, you can be sure Jurgen Klopp’s team will at the very least outwork United. Compared to their performance against Brentford, United will move around a little more, but they still need to show some passion. I don’t see it occurring until something occurs this week that causes a shift in the squad’s mentality.
The home crowd will want them to play aggressively against Liverpool, but if they do, they are in serious peril since it is when Klopp’s team performs at their best. They defeated United 5-0 at Old Trafford last year, so expect a similar outcome this time around. However, I’ll give United a goal simply to boost their morale a little.
Merson shared his Sportskeeda forecast and continued, “After Manchester United were humiliated by Brentford, I wondered how many they’d concede in their game versus Liverpool. But after seeing Liverpool play Palace, I gave Manchester United a chance right away, and I mean it.
“Erik ten Hag and his team have a huge chance to make things right with this. The outcome isn’t as predetermined as it is made out to be, even if it’s the biggest game of the Premier League season and no one expects them to win.
