Sunday’s Premier League match between Manchester United and Liverpool will be an intriguing one, as both teams are trying to find themselves back at the top of the table. United will be looking to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Chelsea on Feb. 18, while Liverpool also have a loss under their belt, losing 2-1 to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City last weekend.
United will definitely need to be in form to get past Liverpool at Old Trafford, but their biggest problem might be replacing Paul Pogba, who is struggling to fill the massive shoes left by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was released from his deal with the club earlier this week. United will also be without David De Gea, who is nursing a minor injury, while Liverpool will have Ragnar Klavan, Joe Gomez and Mamadou Sakho all back in the lineup after injury.

The Red Devils have spent close to $300 million on four signings this season, signing Alexis Sanchez, Fred, Lee Grant and Diogo Dalot. They’ve also brought back Romelu Lukaku from their long-time rivals Chelsea, but the move to bring back Lukaku didn’t please United fans, as Lukaku looked very focused on English football in his first season with Chelsea before moving to United and scoring over 20 goals.
Nevertheless, United is still the more dangerous team this season, and Liverpool, while currently second, has a lot of work to do to get back in contention for the title. But with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane still on the pitch, United’s title hopes could just go up in smoke against the Merseyside team.
