Man United and Liverpool clash three weeks on from FA Cup epic

Following their recent clash in the FA Cup quarter-finals, Manchester United and Liverpool are set to renew their rivalry at Old Trafford in the Premier League this Sunday.

In their previous encounter, Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United emerged triumphant with a 4-3 victory. However, Manchester United endured an unexpected setback midweek, suffering a rare defeat in a match where they conceded seven goals.

As they prepare to face each other again in the Premier League, both teams will be eager to secure a vital win. The anticipation surrounding this fixture is heightened by the longstanding rivalry between the two clubs, promising another enthralling and fiercely contested match for fans to enjoy.

On March 17th, Amad Diallo’s electrifying last-minute goal propelled Manchester United into the FA Cup finals, leaving Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp’s aspirations shattered.

However, Manchester United’s fortunes took a drastic turn on Thursday night. Despite holding a 3-2 lead against Chelsea, they suffered a stunning defeat as Cole Palmer’s second penalty and an extraordinary 101st-minute winner sealed a historic comeback for Chelsea. This collapse saw Manchester United setting an unfortunate Premier League record, becoming the first team to lose a game in the tournament after leading so late.

This defeat adds pressure on Erik ten Hag, especially with Sir Jim Ratcliffe closely monitoring the situation. With limited time to recover, Manchester United, currently sixth in the table, face a nine-point gap behind Tottenham Hotspur and an 11-point deficit to Aston Villa, albeit with a game in hand.

Despite a strong start in February with four consecutive Premier League wins, Manchester United’s recent form has been underwhelming, with only one victory in their last five league matches, earning just four points in that period. Nonetheless, their ability to upset top teams, as seen in their victory over Liverpool earlier in 2024, offers a glimmer of hope amid their current struggles.

Ten Hag’s defensive problems increased as they lost lost Raphael Varane and Jonny Evans, to injury against Chelsea. It is uncear whether either will be available against Liverpool. 19-year-old Willy Kambwala is likely to come in alongside  Harry Maguire. Victor Lindelof (thigh) and Lisandro Martinez (calf) are also out. Casemiro is also doubtful, while Tyrell Malacia (knee), Luke Shaw (thigh), Anthony Martial (groin) and Altay Bayindir (muscle) remain unavailable.


Liverpool’s dreams of FA Cup glory were dashed last month following a thrilling quarter-final loss. However, despite this setback, they remain firmly in control of their destiny in the Premier League title race. Their anticipated victory over Sheffield United did not come as easily as expected, but it ultimately secured three crucial points.

The match against Sheffield United saw a humorous opener from Darwin Nunez, followed by an unfortunate own goal from Conor Bradley, briefly putting Liverpool on the back foot. However, a stunning piledriver from Alexis Mac Allister injected new energy into the Anfield crowd, with Cody Gakpo sealing the win.

With their third consecutive home victory across all competitions, Jurgen Klopp’s team heads into the weekend maintaining a two-point lead over Arsenal and a three-point lead over Manchester City. Both title rivals have the opportunity to leapfrog Liverpool in the standings with victories on Saturday.

Liverpool’s away form has been formidable, with six of their last seven Premier League away games resulting in victories. Moreover, it has been over a year since they failed to score in a top-flight away contest, highlighting their attacking prowess on the road.

In 2024, Liverpool have been unmatched in Europe’s top five leagues, boasting an impressive record of 16 victories and 59 goals across all competitions. Despite being held to a goalless draw by Manchester United earlier in the season, Liverpool has historically been successful in finding the net in Premier League meetings with their rivals.

As Liverpool prepares for an immediate opportunity for vengeance against Manchester United, their strong performance and scoring prowess suggest they are well-positioned to maintain their lead in the Premier League title race.

Wataru Endo missed the Sheffield United game due to the knock he picked up against Brighton & Hove Albion, but he could return at Old Trafford.  Joel Matip (knee), Ben Doak (knee), Stefan Bajcetic (calf) and Thiago Alcantara (muscle) all miss out.  Diogo Jota (knee), Trent Alexander-Arnold (knee) and Alisson Becker (thigh) are all closer, but Sunday will come too soon for them. 


Liverpool were superior for long periods during their cup defeat at Old Trafford. However, they failed to capitalise on this and once Man United took them to extra time it gave the Old Traffiord outfit extra impetus. We don’t expect Liverpool to make the same mistake again. We expect them to leave Old Trafford with the three points. Away win.
