So Many Stars On One Pitch
Liverpool have a very distinct style of play under Jurgen Klopp. It’s an all energy, full-on approach to football but for it to work well, every player must buy into it. That’s the key to Liverpool’s success under the German coach.
To have the managerial skill to motivate, Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane to close the ball down high up the pitch, underlines the respect the players have for Klopp. However, they are still allowed to express themselves and have an enormous amount of creative talent. The sort of talent which can hurt any team.
While Liverpool have big name players like those mentioned above, Manchester United have some incredible talent of their own to call upon. Big things are expected of Paul Pogba this season and what better game in which to produce the goods than Liverpool vs Manchester United?
The Frenchman can do a bit of everything so don’t be surprised to see him make a good tackle, roll over the ball majestically with his feet and fire it into the top corner from 30 yards out.
Add Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Rashford to the mix and you have a tremendous amount of goal scoring capability.
With so many world class players on the pitch at the same time, be prepared for a match which is sure to live long in the memory and go down as one of the great Liverpool vs Manchester United encounters.
Interestingly, in the past seven Premier League meetings at Anfield, Manchester United have lost only once. So if you are interested in making a bet on this match, the double chance draw or Manchester United win is tempting.
Premier Title Chase
With this fixture coming in October, both teams will be challenging for the Premier League title. This only adds to the tension of the rivalry between the cities, the fans and the players.
Liverpool vs Manchester United is a football match every fan should experience at least once in their life time. There is nothing quite like it.
