Manchester United are set to face close rivals Liverpool this weekend in what could be a game that sees the Reds equal Manchester City’s consecutive wins record and United drop into the relegation zone.
It’s no secret that United are struggling. Despite chief Ed Woodward recently emerging from his swamp to announce that Old Trafford is back on the right track under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and that the Norwegian shares the club’s three core values – winning trophies, playing attacking football and giving youth an opportunity, he failed to acknowledge that United are currently somersaulting their way through their worst run in 30 years.
Liverpool, on the other hand, arrive as the champions of Europe and frontrunners in the Premier League having won every single one of their games this season. Massacre pending.

Senior football writer at ESPN Mark Ogden said: “I see no reason, no x-factor whatsoever, that they can beat Liverpool at the weekend.
“It’s only going one way, and I think it could be quite messy for Manchester United,” he added.
Liverpool haven’t won at Old Trafford since 2014, long before their collapse, but with David de Gea and Paul Pogba missing from United’s squad, and an average of just 0.7 scored in all competitions since the opening day slaughter of Chelsea, it’s looking increasingly likely they’ll get the three points on Sunday.
