Manchester United vs Liverpool: 3 reasons why the Man Utd could beat Liverpool at old Trafford this weekend in the Premier League.
Manchester United are in the midst of their worst run decades in the Premier League. After a brilliant opening match against Chelsea, the Red Devils have fallen to the wayside with the side looking beyond repair at the moment.
Manchester United’s plight have worsened by the fact that they’ve hardly had the services of all their top players with many plagued with injuries. United’s lack of goal scoring options has meant that the decision to allow Romelu Lukaku to leave has come to haunt them.
United have done fairly well in terms of possession. However, they have failed to convert their chances and now sit at number 12 with their top 4 ambitions looking like a pipe dream at the moment. Solskjaer himself looks lost and bereft of ideas.
Liverpool on the other hand are at currently at their best. They have won all their matches in the Premier League and look good to continue their run. In Jurgen Klopp they have arguably the best manager in the world right now.
Their front three is also the most fearsome in the League right now and in Robertson, Alexander-Arnold and Van Dijk they have a solid defence that can cut down any attack thrown against them. This Liverpool side is the most formidable they’ve ever been.
However, it would be a fool’s errand to count Manchester United out. Here are 3 reasons why the Red Devils could win against Jurgen Klopp’s side in their upcoming Premier League encounter this weekend at Old Trafford.
Sergio Romero, the impenetrable
Sergio Romero is an interesting case. The Argentine goalkeeper is his country’s most capped shot stopper and could very easily be the first-choice keeper of many teams around the world. Instead, he has chosen to be David De Gea’s deputy.
Romero is arguably better on the ball and its distribution than De Gea is. However, the Spanish keeper is a better shot-stopper. This has of course meant that Romero has to play second fiddle to De Gea. In spite of his limited chances however, Romero has stacked up impressive numbers.
In fact, Manchester United are yet to lose a match at the Old Trafford with Sergio Romero between the sticks for 90 minutes. In 22 games, Manchester United have won 17 games and drawn 5.
