The 206th meeting between Manchester United and Liverpool is set to take centre stage this weekend in the oldest football competition on the world. And of course the winner will not only take home he bragging rights but will also have the chance to increase their honours list by progressing further in the competition going a step closer to the final.
Manchester United’s run going into this game has been a little impressive as they have won 4 of their last 6 game. The other results were a loss against their city rivals and a draw against Liverpool not so long ago. The Red Devils have scored in all but 2 of their last 6 games and registered 3 shutouts in that run.
The Red’s season,however, has been ill-fated . They have a injury list that is longer than most footballers playing career. Liverpool has lost out on the services of their commanding centre back Virgil van Dijk and to make matters worse, their forward have been unable to convert chances. In their last 6 games Liverpool won once, drew 4 times and lost once. Their most recent defeat was inflicted upon them by Burnley at Anfield.
The last time Manchester United beat Liverpool was on 10 March 2018 and then drew thrice and lost once in their subsequent fixture against Liverpool.
