Liverpool Vs Manchester United : Preview And Line Up
Liverpool Vs Manchester United

Manchester United face Liverpool away this weekend, in what is to be, Manchester United's biggest opposition since the start of the season.

The Red Devils are boasting an unbeaten record, which would have been all Wins, but for the 2-2 draw Against Stoke City, leaving them leveled with Manchester City at the top of the table with 19 points with only two goals conceded since the start of the 2017/18 season.

This cannot be said of Liverpool, who will actually expect to use the game as a moral boost after two 1-1 draws in their last two outings, trailing Manchester United with seven points after seven games.

Liverpool presently are the only ones with a history that seems to match that of Manchester United, with a rivalry that spans decades, but despite that Liverpool has failed to win the Premier League since it was made Premier League in 1992, while Manchester United has gone on to win the trophy many times since then.

Manager On The Match

Jose Mourinho said "When you are in a big club, when you are a big player, when you are a big manager, every game is important,"

"You cannot look at some matches as cup finals and other matches differently. For me, every match is a cup final and I've been like this all the time.

"It's three points not four. If we are at a moment in a season where the duel between the two teams ensures the result will mean more than three points, than yes. Sometimes a draw or even to lose by a certain goal difference is important. In this case, it is not important. It's just a three-point match. That's the way I approach it.

"It's good it's that way for me. It's good to do it without any added pressure or emotion. I have to do it always in a professional way. It's the right example for my players to prepare for the Liverpool game.

"Do I like to go to Anfield? Yes, I love it. Do I like to play against Liverpool? Yes. I like amazing stadiums, the best opponents but the preparation is not different. It's just a match."
