Manchester United VS Liverpool: Preview and Predicted Line-ups

Manchester United VS Liverpool

The FA Cup returns for the fourth round this weekend, with a big clash between Manchester United and Liverpool.

Manchester United will host Liverpool in an FA Cup fourth-round tie at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The FA Cup fourth-round sequel can only be an improvement after the anticlimactic goalless draw in the Premier League.


It’s going to be a mouthwatering fixture between the two most successful clubs in English Football.

The Reds are in the middle of an awful run of form at the moment. They are now winless since their last 5 fixtures in the Premier League.

Since hitting Crystal Palace for seven before Christmas, Liverpool have scored just once in their last five league games. They have failed to find the back of the net in any of their last four – their longest drought since May 2000.

Liverpool also lost their proud unbeaten home record in the Premier League against Burnley on Friday.

The Reds are six points behind United in the Premier League title race and a top 4 finish seems likely.

Meanwhile Manchester United have not lost in the Premier League since their 1-0 loss to Arsenal in November.

They are currently 1st in the Premier League and come into this game after a superb 2-1 away win against Fulham .

Ole Gunner Solkajaer is expected to make changes, one of which will see Rashford return to the starting XI after he sat out against Fulham.

Dean Henderson and Alex Telles could probably be given chances.

Solskjaer is unlikely to weaken his starting XI too much, though, so the likes of Bruno Fernandes, PogbaHarry Maguire and Edinson Cavani could all start.

Meanwhile Liverpool are expected to be without their Skipper Jordan Henderson due to muscle strain.

Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino were both dropped to the bench for the visit of Burnley and should be returning to the starting lineup.

Liverpool Right-Robertson could be given a rare rest due to the return Kostas Tsimikas back on the bench.

Manchester United 1-0 Liverpool

Manchester United are favorites to win the North West Derby. Liverpool seem to be clueless and can’t seem to find solutions to their goal scoring problems. Meanwhile Manchester United have a number of attacking players in much better form than those of Liverpool and that could ultimately prove to be the difference in this tie.
