Man United vs Liverpool: Premier League preview

Manchester United host old rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Liverpool were held to a 0-0 draw by Porto on Tuesday night in the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie. To be fair to the Reds, the tie was already over after Liverpool won the first leg that finished 5-0.

The draw extends Liverpool’s unbeaten run to seven matches.

Manchester United had the week off, with their Champions League second leg coming up next week.

On Monday, Jose Mourinho’s side came from 2-0 down to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 at Selhurst Park. Chris Smalling began the comeback in the second half before Romelu Lukaku levelled the scores. An absolute screamer from Nemanja Matic secured the win deep into stoppage time.

Liverpool begin the weekend two points below Manchester United and require a win to leapfrog the Red Devils in second position.

Manchester United boast the second best home record in the league this season as well as the best defensive home record, having conceded just six league goals at Old Trafford this campaign.

Jurgen Klopp’s side, meanwhile, have the second best away record in the division.

The two sides played out a 0-0 draw in October’s reverse fixture at Anfield.
