Liverpool tipped to exploit Man United’s defensive woes - get Premier League fantasy tips and prediction
Manchester United (MUN) play host to Liverpool (LIV) in Gameweek 9 of the English Premier League 2021-22 season at Old Trafford on Sunday, October 24. The match will kick off at 9:00 PM IST.
MUN vs LIV Dream11 prediction
It is no surprise that Liverpool, who have not lost in 18 matches in the Premier League, are well-positioned to win the match, due to two factors in their favour. One, United have won only one of their last 10 league matches against Liverpool; and two, Liverpool are in good form at the moment. At least three goals have been scored in each of the team's last five away league matches.
This run of form coincides with a leaky Manchester United defence that has shipped in nine goals in their last five matches across all competitions. Moreover, United have failed to win in their previous two Premier League home matches (D1, L1), giving the Reds a slight advantage on Sunday.
MUB vs LIV Dream11 teams tips for Premier League 2021-22
Best forward: Mohamed Salah
Mohamed Salah simply loves scoring against Manchester United. Last season, the 29-year-old Egyptian forward netted three goals against Manchester United in two matches, and a goal on Sunday would make him the first Liverpool player to score in three consecutive games against the Red Devils.
Top tip: Best midfielder
If there’s anyone who can salvage anything positive for Manchester United, it’s Bruno Fernandes. The 27-year-old Portuguese has been involved in six league goals (G4, A2) so far and will be looking to add more to his tally, given that he has provided four assists in his last four outings.
Top tip: Best defender and goal-keeper
In his last three encounters with Manchester United, Trent Alexander-Arnold has provided two assists. Despite a decline in his form this season, United can expect him to be a threat on the right flank.
Contrary to Manchester United’s David de Gea, Liverpool’s Alisson Becker is most likely to keep a clean sheet on Sunday given the quality defenders he has in front of him. It thus makes sense to pick him.
MUN vs LIV probable playing XI
MUN playing XI (probable): David de Gea (goal-keeper); Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire (captain), Luke Shaw; Fred, Paul Pogba; Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford; Cristiano Ronaldo
LIV playing XI (probable): Alisson (goal-keeper); Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Andrew Robertson; Jordan Henderson (captain), Fabinho, James Milner; Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane
