This Sunday morning, we will get to see two clutch clashes in the Premier League between Liverpool and Manchester United. Just reading that on paper is exciting as both matches always deliver the goods — always.
At 8:30 a.m. EDT, Liverpool will be hosting Manchester United in the first of two league meeting with both sides looking to make a statement against one another. Liverpool have six points while United have four, therefore, if the home side (L’pool) wins, they will jump up to nine points for a perfect three-for-three start. United, on the other hand, will remain at four.
The way Liverpool are playing makes it hard to see them losing this one. The worst result they should receive is a draw with United missing chances but Liverpool outplaying them. Both sides will give the other problems, but when it comes to possession, L’pool will have more fun while United will look straight to the final third where they hope Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie can score aplenty.
Brendan Rogers is in charge for the second-straight season for the Anfield club, and finally they are playing very well under his 4-3-3 system. With two wins already under their belts, winning against United convincingly will automatically put fear into opponents. This is a team that used to be respected in the title fight, but recently they have been considered lucky to finish in the top five. The time for that to change is right now.
Let’s remember that in 2005, they defeated AC Milan to lift the Champions League trophy and lost to the same opponents in the final two years later. Those glory days have been gone for awhile now. The time is slowly but surely returning.
