Liverpool’s renaissance? Manchester United visit Anfield, where they have not won since 2016

Date: February 27, 2024 Time: 05:53:36

Team form and positions


Until recently, Liverpool’s tournament situation was as deplorable as possible, in which not only the Champions League was smelled, but even next year’s Europa League. The complete reincarnation of the team is still some way off, but Jurgen Klopp has finally started to revive the team, which is especially clear in small segments.

For example, a month ago, the Liverpool players seemed insignificant against the background of the Wolverhampton midfield, which left no chance for the Premier League runner-up with a score of 3:0. And on the first of March, the Reds, not with the same score, but with no less confidence, were able to respond, having won at Anfield against Wolves – 2:0.

Liverpool is still far from Manchester United – 10 points, but nothing in the top five – 2 points. If the Merseysiders manage to crack a main competitor, it will be a powerful psychological advantage at the end of the season.

“Manchester United”

Well, Manchester United have long been in a serious crisis and are now enjoying their best segment of the season, and perhaps even of all recent years since the SAF era.

Manchester United won the League Cup, easily entered the quarterfinals of the FA Cup (won against West Ham – 3: 1), and in the Premier League standings they surpass Tottenham by four points (also in the game in reserve), and only Manchester City with Arsenal is superior.

estimated compositions


Liverpool’s main victory at the moment is not even over rivals, but over itself, or rather over injuries. Luis Diaz, Thiago and a couple of other players have yet to recover, but all the other players are in the ranks so Klopp no ​​longer has to reinvent the wheel.

Even Fabinho, who was criticized by Jürgen in press conferences, started to look like his old self, and that is very important for the midfield. The attack began to work. Cody Gakpo finally adjusted to the league, Salah started scoring and conceding, and Darwin Nunez stopped losing moments (although he’s still far from ideal).

“Manchester United”

Manchester United head coach Erik ten Hag is also doing very well. The rich composition allows the Dutch to even rotate the composition. For example, in the last cup game, Marcus Rashford stayed on the bench, whose exploits in 2023 you all know.

Alejandro Garnacho stands out with a pleasant and fast gait, who goes from being a youth player to an important part of the main team. This season he has 5 + 6 goals + ass in 1260 game minutes (14 complete games). The 18-year-old winger may also start against Liverpool.
