Manchester United who are currently bottom of the Premier League table, having lost their opening two matches to Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford will today welcome bitter rivals, Liverpool to Old Trafford. 

Last season’s runners-up Liverpool who are 12th, having drawn their first two games of the campaign against Fulham and Crystal Palace will look to kickstart their season against the Red Devils.

Man United opened their 2022-23 Premier League campaign with a 2-1 home defeat to Brighton on August 7 before suffering a shock 4-0 defeat at Brentford penultimate weekend, with all of the home side’s goals coming in the first half of the contest.

The two defeats, coupled with the already-poor goal difference, have left the Red Devils at the bottom of the division, and another loss on Monday evening would lead to more pressure on the manager, Eric Ten Hag, who has been tasked with helping to rebuild arguably the biggest football club on the planet.

Man United were embarrassed by Liverpool in their two Premier League games last season, suffering a 5-0 loss at Old Trafford and a 4-0 defeat at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have actually won each of their last three league meetings, with the Red Devils not beating their rivals in England’s top flight since March 2018.
