What to know about Liverpool (1st)
Manchester United vs Liverpool game preview 2019 take on the Reds for EPL Matchday 9 2019:
This is arguably Liverpool’s strongest team over the last few decades and these few months have been almost like a fairy tale for them. Liverpool have won their last 17 league games and they clearly don’t look like stopping anytime soon. A win in this one would mean they’d be level with Manchester City’s record of 18 league wins.
Barring the game against Sheffield United, each of their games has had 2.5+ goals in it. If we consider the xG (expected goals for) and xGA (expected goals against) stats from understat, they’ve outperformed in both offensive and defensive department.
Their xG is 17.43 while they have found the end of the net 20 times. On top of that, their xGA, which is 7.38 shows they should have conceded seven goals by now but they’ve only conceded six. Numbers and their recent form reflect towards adding another win to their 17-wins tally.
What to know about Manchester United (12th)
Manchester United vs. Liverpool game preview 2019 take on the Red Devils for EPL Matchday 9 2019:
Contrary to their rivals, everything has been wrong with Manchester United lately. The sale of their attacking players in the summer transfer window has bereft their manager off significant attacking pedigree and injuries since the start of the season has made life worse for Ole Gunnar’s men.
The only positive for them would be the return of Luke Shaw, Anthony Martial and Aaron Wan-Bissaka from injuries after the international break.
They’ve underperformed massively in terms of attack. Although, xG-wise, they’re still the 5th best team in the division but they’ve been poor at taking their chances. The number below would give you a fair idea of that.
Manchester United have been in an awfully shocking lately and there’s a fear around at Stretford that this game could inflict a heavy defeat for the hosts.
Red Devils have only managed to win once in their last 7 games and this game doesn’t look to end that woeful run either.
- Liverpool have won their last 17 league games.
- Liverpool have averaged 2.50 goals in the 2019/20 season.
