Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Buoyed by the FA Cup triumph over Manchester City, Liverpool will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Manchester United to their Anfield on Tuesday evening. The Reds have been scoring goals for fun of late, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Matip is widely expected to replace Konate in the starting XI, with Diogo Jota pushing for a start as well.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 3-2 victory over relegation strugglers Norwich City at the weekend, with Cristiano Ronaldo completing a hat-trick in the dying minutes of the match. Man Utd, though, will have a much bigger fish to fry at Anfield, and seeing that Jurgen Klopp has a full squad to choose from, home win should be considered. As for the visiting side, both Fred and Scott McTominay are sidelined with injuries, as well as Edinson Cavani and Luke Shaw. Raphael Varane, though, should be recalled to the starting XI.
Highlighted Player (Sadio Mané):
Sadio Mane is a Senegalese footballer who plays for Liverpool as a winger. Mane was born in Sedhiou Senegal on April 10, 1992, but he made his senior debut at French club Metz. In 2012 he moved to Red Bull Salzburg, with the pacey winger scoring 31 goals in 63 appearances for the club in the Austrian Bundesliga.
Mane then decided to take a step forward in his career as he joined famous Premier League club Liverpool for a fee of £34 million, signing a five-year contract with the Reds. The Senegal international quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Liverpool and, no doubt, he helped the Anfield outfit make it to the 2017/2018 Champions League final.
Speaking of trophies, Sadio Mane won the Austrian Bundesliga with Salzburg in the 2013/2014 season. In 2017 he was named Liverpool player of the year for the 2016/2017 season. Sadio Mane made his Senegal debut in 2012 and he was part of the Senegal team that participated at the 2012 Olympic tournament.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
