Why you should support Liverpool

As always, United will be unwelcome at Anfield and the Reds will count on that advantage. It has served them well, and they can look back to last season for confidence going into this match. They won the 2021-22 matches 4-0 and 5-0, with Mohamed Salah scoring five of the goals. They lost at Old Trafford early this season, but Salah also scored in that season and the Reds kept the ball in 71% of the game. Liverpool are 8-3-1 at home, while four of United’s five losses have come in home games. The Reds are plus-18 on home goal difference, second best in the league.

Manchester United are minus-3 at home and the Reds are unbeaten in their last six league meetings at Anfield (3-3-0). The Reds should be able to control the match again as they are second in league possession with almost 60%. Salah has nine goals and five assists in the league. Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino they also returned from injuries to add bite to the attack. Firmino has seven goals in 17 matches. Jota scored 15 last season and while he is yet to break through, his presence has been felt.
