They’ve both sustained long periods of success in English soccer in the ’80s and ’90s, but times have changed for both Liverpool and Manchester United. However, there is ALWAYS a bitter rivalry between these two giants of the English game. When they meet, goals fly in, red cards are dished out and rival fan chants go from playful sporting to hatred!
Liverpool’s iconic Anfield stadium is the setting for this exciting game, with their enigmatic coach Jurgen Klopp hoping to get one over on surly Dutch manager Louis Van Gaal and his Red Devils. The action kicks off at 9:05 a.m. EST. CLICK TO WATCH THE LIVE STREAM!
In an earlier match-up between the two teams on Sept. 12, 2015, Manchester United ran out 3-1 winners at Old Trafford, thanks to goals from Daley Blind, Ander Herrara and teenage sensation Anthony Martial.
And in the corresponding match-up last season, Manchester United were victorious again, winning on the road 2-1, so it’s up to Liverpool to exact revenge for their last two defeats. Their fans will be out for blood, that’s for sure.
Liverpool, who sits in 9th position in the Premier League, will be buoyed by a recent performance against title-chasing Arsenal after rescuing a late 3-3 tie. Roberto Firmino managed to score twice in that game, and he’s beginning to come into form.
Whereas Manchester United, currently 6th, is coming off a disappointing 3-3 tie themselves. They were pegged back in the final minute against relegation-threatened Newcastle in a pulsating match, despite a heroic performance by legendary striker Wayne Rooney.
