The unpredictable nature of the English Premiership teams makes tonight’s make-or-break encounter between Liverpool and Manchester United worth your time.
Recall that the last time the two teams met in the Premier League, Manchester United suffered a humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.
Are we going to experience a repeat of the Old Trafford nightmare or a different story will be told after the encounter?
Despite United’s drop in form this season, a resurgent Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick helped his side to a 3-2 victory over underdogs Norwich City.
Importantly, United need a victory against Liverpool in pursuit of a top-four finish to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Also contending with Manchester United for a top-four finish are Arsenal and Tottenham who have been tipped by many football pundits and enthusiasts to finish ahead of the Red Devils that are struggling to hold the ace.
Liverpool being in great shape, having last lost a match in December 28, 2021, against Leicester City, is in a hot chase to snap the Premier League title from favourites Manchester City.
Spectacularly, Christiano Ronaldo bounced back with a hat-trick against Norwich City instigating many United fans to become optimistic that United will send Liverpool to the cleaners until the news broke that he lost his son.
However, the question on the lips of everyone right now remains ‘will the death of Ronaldo’s son have any negative impact on the performance of the United side going by the fact that Christiano Ronaldo may not be playing as he mourns his loss?
With Luke Shaw, Edison Cavani, Raphael Varane, Scott McTominay and talismanic midfielder Fred all injured and Mason Greenwood facing suspension, the possibility of Manchester United beating an energetic Liverpool side aiming for a quadruple remains a difficult task.
Despite the fact that anything is possible in football, the stats obviously are grossly in favour of a Liverpool win tonight.
