Liverpool (LIV) travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United (MUN) in their upcoming Premier League 2022-23 clash on Tuesday, August 23. The match will start at 12:30 AM IST (Indian Standard Time).
MUN vs LIV Dream11 prediction
Liverpool and Manchester United, who have a celebrated rivalry in English football, have endured frustrating starts to their 2022 Premier League campaigns.
Liverpool, for starters, were held to a 1-1 stalemate by Crystal Palace after they drew 2-2 against promoted side Fulham in their opening match of the season.
Jurgen Klopp’s men, unbeaten in their last 21 Premier League games, haven’t lost a league meeting against MUFC since March 2018 and will look to extend the run against their struggling rivals.
Manchester United’s 0-4 defeat to Brentford last weekend meant the Red Devils have now lost their opening two Premier League matches for the first time since 1992-93.
Despite not being the obvious favourites to win the upcoming game, United will fancy their chances of a surprise win given their advantage in the head-to-head in the Premier League (28 wins in 60 meetings) and Liverpool’s current injury crisis (six players injured, including Diogo Jota).
MUN vs LIV Dream11 team tips for Premier League 2022-23
Top tip: Best forward
Mohamed Salah will lead the Liverpool attack against Manchester United on Tuesday, given the absence of Diogo Jota (injury) and Darwin Nunez (suspension). The Egyptian star, with seven league goals against MUFC, will be eager to be on the scoresheet.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes will continue to be the Red Devils’ trump card in big-team clashes. With 36 goals and 25 assists in 89 PL games, the Portuguese star will aim to perform against an injury-struck Liverpool. Bruno's presence at the centre of the park will be a constant threat to the Liverpool defenders.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold can be an ideal selection. The English full-back will look to dominate the right flank and contribute with forward passes for Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino to find the net against Manchester United.
For a goalkeeper, LIV’s Alisson Becker is an outright pick. The Brazil international is more likely to keep a clean sheet than his MUFC counterpart David De Gea, who has been error-prone in the first couple of matches.
MUN vs LIV probable playing XI
MUN playing XI (probable): David de Gea (goalkeeper); Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martínez, Raphael Varane, Diogo Dalot; Christian Eriksen, Fred, Bruno Fernandes (captain); Marcus Rashford, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho
LIV playing XI (probable): Alisson Becker (goalkeeper); Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson; Jordan Henderson (captain), Fabinho, Harvey Elliott; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Luis Diaz
