Liverpool at Manchester United isn’t called off, as of yet, but it’s obviously significantly delayed right now. Originally scheduled to kick off about 30 minutes ago, Old Trafford is still being secured, after a massive security breach, so that a match can actually proceed.

It’s a must win for Liverpool on Sunday when they travel across northwest England to face Manchester United. After dropping two points in injury time last Saturday, the Reds sit sixth in the table, four points adrift of fourth place and only one ahead of seventh.

Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Liverpool FC

Manchester United can bring a very relaxed attitude to the run-in right now as they have a top four finish secured. They haven’t completely locked down a runner-up finish, but they’re closing in on it. Sunday brings the second of the two annual Liverpool rivalry clashes and United do have a special motivation here- spite.

They don’t have much left to play for domestically, but they can do their part to see that Liverpool finishes outside the top four, and no doubt that will get them fired up for Sunday.

Manchester United Team News, Updates vs Liverpool FC

Manchester United have to be feeling really good as they enter the weekend clash against their most hated of rivals, Liverpool FC. Last night they crushed AS Roma 6-2 in the first leg of their Europa League semifinal tie. Yes, they were down 1-2 at the break, but the way they responded after halftime was indeed inspiring.

United got a brace from both Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani while long time Red Chris Smalling played for the other side in a manner that very much benefitted his former club. His dreadful performance led to a lot of funny jokes on social media. Below are a couple:

Liverpool Owner John W. Henry Says He’s at Fault for Super League Mess

john-w-henry-hot-wife

As much as there is to dislike about Real Madrid President Florentino Perez, and the European Super League he spearheaded, at least he was out there publicly defending it. The other ringleaders, like the Glazers at Manchester United and John W. Henry at Liverpool FC, were silent.

Yes, Perez didn’t say anything in interviews beyond easily debunked misinformation and really self-serving verbal garbage, but at least he was out there, standing up for his position. Meanwhile United CEO Ed Woodward took accountability for his mistakes by resigning. Finally, on Wednesday, Henry faced the music and issued his mea culpa.
