Manchester United will still be smarting from their 2-0 loss to great rivals Liverpool in the Europa League on Mar, 10, but this is the perfect way to get revenge by beating them at Old Trafford 3-0 to progress to the quarter finals of the Europa League. The game kicks off at 4.05 p.m., and you’re not going to want to miss a minute so click down for the live stream!
United were feeble in their first match-up, hardly creating any chances as they succumbed to goals from Daniel Sturridge and Neymar‘s Brazilian teammate Roberto Firmino for this hunky Liverpool team. So, United know they can’t afford to slip up in the second leg, and will be looking for an early goal.
Manchester United will throw the kitchen sink at Liverpool after stuttering to a tie in their FA Cup quarter final match-up against West Ham, which gives them a difficult away replay. Realistically, the Europa League gives them their only chance of a trophy this year.
United are likely to rest teenage sensation Marcus Rashford for this game after his star performances against Arsenal and FC Midtjylland, with lanky midfield star Marouane Fellaini favored to start upfront as the Red Devils will use his aerial presence to play the long ball game.
Liverpool’s trusted 6’3″ central defender Martin Skrtel is likely to miss out for the reds, which means United’s tactic could be the right one with their opponents struggling against bigger opposition players this season.
However, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp is ready for the challenge ahead. “I don’t know! I am absolutely optimistic. I always have the best feelings before the game! he said at a press conference on Mar. 16. “It’s football. Since I have been here, this is the third time we play United, and we have always been in the game in all three games. The world doesn’t change overnight. There is a chance for United, 100%, but we know that we know how to play them. That doesn’t mean it is easy. We have to be brave, concentrated, aggressive in a legal way. That is all clear. I don’t think too much about what will happen. We have time to prepare. Tomorrow is Man United day, with training and the meeting and the game. At the end we will be prepared.”
This is a tough game to call, with United on song they could beat anyone. And with the fans behind them, they will be roared on.
