After two back-to-back opening defeats in the English Premier League , Manchester United will be aiming for their first win when they face Liverpool in a mouthwatering clash on Monday night (12:30 AM IST, August 23) at Old Trafford. (More Football News)
So far, Manchester United have conceded six goals and only scored one. That, too, was an own-goal. Oh, and to top it off, the Eric ten Hag-coached side are sitting 19th in the table.
If the 2-1 opening weekend loss at home to Brighton was rough, the ensuing 4-0 thrashing by Brentford last Saturday was one of the worst results in Manchester United's recent history.
What has cost Manchester United so far? While goalkeeper David de Gea and the backline were at fault for some defensive errors, a misfiring Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes have added to the misery of the former champions. This is also the first time Manchester United find themselves at the bottom of the table in 30 years.
On Friday, Manchester United reached a deal with Real Madrid for defensive midfielder Casemiro but the Brazilian is unlikely to feature against Liverpool. The good news is Anthony Martial is back in training, but Victor Lindelof is still unavailable.
On the other hand, Liverpool will be missing the services of Darwin Nunez, who was sent off against Crystal Palace. Although Roberto Firmino has returned to training and is a natural replacement for Nunez, he remains a doubt due to a lack of match sharpness.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Thiago Alcantara are still nursing hamstring issues while Ibrahima Konate’s knee problem is likely to keep him out for a while. Centre-back Joel Matip will still be out for another week to recover from a muscle strain.
