Erik ten Hag’s side have defied odds to comfortably sit third in the Premier League standings – not something many anticipated at the start of the season.
Liverpool will be keen to enact revenge on Manchester United when these two sides take on each other in a blockbuster Premier League contest on Sunday. This fixture is undoubtedly the match of the weekend. With a lot riding on this game for both sides, neither would want to be on the losing side when the full-time whistle is blown by the referee. The hosts, however, will be eager for payback following their 2-1 loss to the same opponent earlier in the season at Old Trafford. With the two-most successful English giants going against each other, neutrals can expect to witness fireworks at Anfield on Sunday.
They both had their ups and downs this campaign, however, it is Manchester United who can be happy with how this term has turned out to be. Erik ten Hag’s side have defied odds to comfortably sit third in the Premier League standings – not something many anticipated at the start of the season. It is Liverpool who will be disappointed with how their season has panned out so far. Jurgen Klopp’s boys were not able to live up to pre-season hype, as they slumped into mid-table positions.
However, the recent run of good form has helped Liverpool get closer to the Champions League places. Both sides have an identical record of late, having won three of their last four league matches and are both unbeaten in all of those games. As things stand, Liverpool are sitting at the sixth spot in the Premier League table with 39 points from 24 games. On the other hand, Manchester United are three places and 10 points above the hosts in the table with 49 points from the same number of matches.
