One of the most historic matches in England and one of the biggest rivalries in European football is ready to kick off on Sunday afternoon. In Liverpool vs Manchester United the motive is not only based on winning the three points, but also on proving which is the best team in the country. Liverpool will try to keep up with a top-four Premier League finish in 2022-203, while Manchester United needs the win to hope for the title a little more.
Liverpool vs Manchester United
Date: Sunday, 5 March 2023
Venue: Anfield Stadium, Liverpool
Liverpool managed to take advantage of its game in hand, beating Wolves on Wednesday by 2-0. The Reds played very well (not at the standards that we are used to though) and added three more points in the Premier League standings. The team is out of every other major goal this season, being eliminated from EFL Cup and FA Cup early and trailing in the 2-5 loss against Real Madrid in the Champions League. So a fight for a top-four spot is the only thing that’s left in Jurgen Klopp’s squad, but the chances are higher than a month ago. Liverpool is just six points behind 4th placed Tottenham, having played a game less than the Spurs.
Luis Diaz, Thiago Alcantara and Calvin Ramsay are the only sidelined players for the hosts. The Colombian is on track to return from his knee injury, but Klopp couldn’t risk it yet. Alcantara’s hip problem will keep him out until the last days of March and Ramsay had knee surgery and will be out for the season. Joe Gomez is not fit yet, while Arthur started again to train, but he can’t help the team at this point.
Manchester United’s fans can’t stop smiling as the team continues to win every game possible. The Red Devils eliminated Barcelona from the Europa League, facing Betis in the Europa League round of 16. They will also compete against Fulham at Old Trafford in the FA Cup quarter-finals but most importantly they won the EFL Cup last Sunday at Wembley, beating Newcastle. On Wednesday night, they faced the danger of elimination against West Ham, but Casemiro, Garnacho and Fred were ready to step up once more and help their team to qualify, as everyone on the club sees the quadruple chances still open.
Erik ten Hag can’t count on Anthony Martial, Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek for the Liverpool vs Manchester United matchup. Only van de Beek will be out for the season, while the first two are in recovery and will not be risked. Martial’s hip ingury left him unavailable for a almost a month and the team would not risk another setback. Eriksen sustained an ankle injury some time ago and will be oute for a couple of months. Jadon Sancho had a fever midweek and he is a minor doubt, as the Dutch coach will be happy to see Luke Shaw back in the squad after his knock.
Liverpool is offered at 2.45 and Barcelona at 2.80, with the draw set at 3.70.
The over/under line is set at 2.5 goals, with the over at 1.67 and the under at 2.20.
The Both Teams to Score Option is valued at 1.56, and the “No” is at 2.40.
