After completing a solid 5 game winning run in the Premier League, Manchester United will need to prove that they can do what they did in their recent rounds in front of the big teams. They will be hosting Liverpool at the Old Trafford in the go-to game of the 21st round of the Premier League.
The hosts have been in the best possible form in their last 5 league games. Manchester United midfield and attack have finally found their chemistry and the new signings have settled well. The team have collected all possible 15 points in their last 5 league matches. Their last game was against West Ham away from home where they won 2-0.
Manchester United are currently sitting in the 6th place in the league table with 39 points from 11 wins, 6 draws and 3 losses. They have scored 31 goals and conceded 19 since the start of the season.
Eric Bailly is with the Ivory Coast squad at the Africa Cup of Nations and won’t feature for Manchester United until next month. Zlatan Ibrahimovic missed their 2-0 win over Hull in the first leg of their League Cup semi final due to illness but Jose Mourinho expects him to recover in time to feature against Liverpool.
The visitors are also in a very strong form at the moment, something that will make this game a must watch for all football fans. Liverpool have won all but one game in their last 5 games in the Premier League. The team have collected 13 points from a possible 15 in that same period. Their last game finished in a 2-2 draw to Sunderland away from home.
Liverpool are sitting in the second place in the league table with 44 points from 13 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses. They have scored 48 goals, more than any team in the Premier League so far this season, and conceded 23 since the start of the season.
Philippe Coutinho returned to action in midweek after two months out injured and he is expected to start here after getting just less than 30 minutes of game time under his belt against Southampton. Sadio Mane is away on international duty with Senegal ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations and will not be free to play for the next month. Jurgen Klopp may also be without Joel Matip and Jordan Henderson, who are struggling with ankle and heel injuries respectively.
