Liverpool vs Manchester UnitedAnfield8:00pm
It’s an emotional night at the Anfield Stadium on Tuesday night following the news of the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo’s son and unconfirmed rumors say the Anfield supporters will honor the Portuguese on the 7th minute mark.
Liverpool have the quadruple dream and what better way can they go about it that to beat Manchester United to move ahead of City on the log? The Kops beat Manchester City in the semifinals of the FA Cup on Saturday to book a place in the final against Chelsea.
The top four race is still up for grabs and Manchester United were handed a lifeline last weekend with Tottenham losing to Brighton at the London Stadium, closing the gap on fourth and Arsenal also lost yet again at St. Mary’s Stadium.
Manchester United showed the weaknesses we’ve all seen all season yet again in their 3-2 win over Norwich on Saturday, bottom club with almost no hope of survival, yet held United by the jugular and if Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t play the game, the result could have been different.
Speaking of Cristiano Ronaldo, the mega super star struck hist 30th hattrick after clocking 30, same number he had before he clocked 30, what a man, what a phenomenon and we can’t be grateful enough to witness his reigns.
Liverpool have just one job, to beat Manchester United and you can bet on them that they would without breaking much sweats. Liverpool might not be able to replicate the 5-0 annihilation of United that they pulled off in the first leg but nothing stops them from beating the Red Devils on Tuesday night.
United will rely on Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba to create magic on Tuesday night but they cannot afford to set out without handbrakes like they did against the bottom club, they must drive with caution but you wonder if Nemanja Matic can come through in the absence of Scott McTominay and Fred.
Liverpool will go hard on United with Mohammed Salah, in-form Sadio Mane and Luis Dias, Thiago Alcantara is enjoying his football these days, he will have Fabinho and Henderson to rely on as well… It will be a long evening for David De Gea.
