Liverpool vs Manchester United Match Details
Liverpool vs Manchester United kicks-off at Anfield at 16.30 on Sunday 19 January. The match is being broadcast live on Sky Sports.
Liverpool have gone 38 matches unbeaten, and Anfield has been a fortress this season with wins against Norwich, Arsenal, Newcastle, Leicester, Tottenham, Manchester City, Brighton, Everton, Watford, Wolves, and Sheffield United. That means they’ve already beaten six of the teams that currently sit in the top half of the table at home.
What could be even more important is Liverpool were regularly leaking goals earlier in the season, but they’ve now conceded just once in 11 games, and that was against Monterrey in the FIFA Club World Cup Final.
Manchester United Form
Fifth place in the Premier League isn’t good enough for United fans and, with 16 games to go, Ole Gunner Solskjaer will be hoping his team can overhaul Chelsea and claim a Champions League spot.
But United are a tough team to weigh-up, having beaten Manchester City away from home this season, whilst they’ve also lost their last two away games 2-0 against Arsenal and Watford. Their 0-0 draw at Wolves in the FA Cup means they’ve now failed to score in their last three away games.
Liverpool vs Manchester United Head-To-Heads
Liverpool vs Manchester United is one of the Premier League’s box-office clashes and the pair have played each other 55 times. United have dominated with 28 wins to Liverpool’s 14. United have also dominated at Anfield, with 12 wins to Liverpool’s nine, whilst six games have been drawn.
The last two games between the two sides have been draws at Old Trafford, but it’s worth remembering that Liverpool won last year’s corresponding fixture 3-1. Mane opened the scoring for Liverpool before Jess Lingard equalized. Liverpool then found an unlikely hero in Xherdan Shaqiri who scored two second-half goals to seal the win.
