Manchester United vs Liverpool
Date: Tuesday, 12 July 2022
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Raja Mangala Stadium.
The Reds were actually on track to win a quadruple the previous season, but near the close of the campaign they received a reality check.
Their most recent match was the Champions League Final, which Real Madrid won 1-0 to claim the title of European champions.
Anyhow, they have returned with a vengeance and are ready to challenge all of Europe to settle a score. And they actually have the ideal foe with whom to open their new campaign.
Manchester United is not having a nice time at the moment. They were unable to get tickets for the current Champions League, and their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo also appears to be on strike.
They have not achieved any of their transfer goals, and they are definitely not ready for the start of the new campaign.
The team led by Jurgen Klopp will be eager to seize this chance and try to defeat their bitter rivals on Tuesday. And that is also the expected outcome.
Manchester United vs Liverpool Head to head :
- The latest encounter had finished in a 4-0 win for Liverpool.
- The meeting before that had finished in a 0-5 win for them.
- They had scored 4 or more goals in the past 3 clashes.
- In the past 4 years they have lost only once against this opponent.
Manchester United vs Liverpool Prediction :
Goal-fests are rare in matches between Manchester United and Liverpool, and this one shouldn’t be any different.
The hosts, who are keen to snap their Premier League losing streak, might shut down and wait to strike on the break, which could initially work in their favor.
However, Mohamed Salah is currently in seductive form and occasionally creates space out of thin air.
Additionally, Manchester United’s home record is not encouraging, as they have only won eight of their past seven league contests at Old Trafford.
However, Liverpool has the longest active winning streak of any team in England’s top four divisions with 18 Premier League games without a loss.
That streak should continue on Sunday against Manchester United with a 2-1 victory led by Mohamed Salah, which could put some pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Manchester United vs Liverpool Team News :
Ronaldo was noticeably absent from Man United’s 31-man squad that traveled to Thailand, but Malacia was included, and the new acquisition is set to play a role on Tuesday.
Anthony Martial might start in a front three with Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford because it is rumored that he will be given the chance to establish himself in the middle during preseason.
Donny van de Beek, who recently returned to the team after spending time on loan at Everton, might also start, and Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane are set to line up in the middle of the defense.
Many brilliant young people, such Alejandro Garnacho, Hannibal Mejbri, and Facundo Pellistri, have traveled to Thailand, and Ten Hag may decide to choose different XIs for each side of this competition.
As for Liverpool, Klopp has selected a 37-man squad, so the Reds will also undergo significant lineup changes throughout this game and the following several contests.

Nunez’s debut might occur from the sidelines, while Jordan Henderson, Thiago, and Naby Keita, a familiar midfield trio, might start the game.
