Liverpool vs. Manchester United Preview

The biggest rivalry in English football is going down, featuring two of the most successful football clubs in England as Manchester United goes head-to-head with Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday.

Both teams have had lasting periods of success and, as a result, are located in England’s Northwest, and the rivalry between their fanbases has grown over the years. Whether at Old Trafford, Anfield, or a neutral ground, it has made their meetings one of the most anticipated in English football.

Date, kick-off time, and venue

Liverpool vs. Manchester United is scheduled for an 8 pm BST kick-off on Tuesday, April 19, 2022. You can watch the game live online via soccer streaming sites.

Head-to-head

Liverpool have an unbeaten record vs. United in their last Premier League matches. They have recorded four wins and three draws in that span.

United has failed to score an away goal in this fixture since December 2018. Jesse Lingard scored the last away goal in a 3-1 defeat.

Liverpool Preview

This season, Liverpool is unbeaten at home in the league with 12 wins and three losses. Ten of those wins were consecutive.

They are ranked second in the Premier League table.

Mohammed Salah has seen the back of the net seven times against United in their last five meetings in all competitions.

Manchester United

United won two of their last eight games and kept only one clean sheet in their previous ten games in all competitions.

They are fifth in the Premier League table.

Christiano Ronaldo has lost only once in his last six appearances at Anfield but has failed to score in all five of his away games for United in 2022.

Injury news

Liverpool have no major injury concerns beyond fatigue, but United are missing many players (see the Premier League injury table). Bruno Fernandes is a doubt after being involved in a car crash on Monday morning. Scott McTominay (foot), Edinson Cavani (calf), Luke Shaw (leg), and Fred (hip) are out, while Raphael Varane (muscle) hopes to return at some stage this week.

Prediction

All manner of results come from derbies, but a confident Liverpool team at Anfield is a test United’s defence cannot overcome.

A 3-1 Liverpool win.
