Liverpool will be taking on fierce rivals Manchester United for their Next EPL fixture and former Man United striker Wayne Rooney has made his prediction.
Wayne Rooney has predicted what would happen in Monday night’s crucial match between Manchester United and Liverpool.
The season has begun off poorly for both teams. As Liverpool came drawing its first two games against Fulham and Crystal Palace.
The results for Manchester United have been much worse, with defeats to Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion.
Both clubs have a lot riding on Monday night’s encounter at Old Trafford, which Manchester United lost 5-0 the year before.
Wayne Rooney on Liverpool vs Man United
According to Wayne Rooney, if United’s performance against Brentford were to be repeated, it might result in a humiliating home defeat similar to last year.
According to Rooney, by seeing United’s performances, fans can expect a much worse result. But he believes it won’t happen, and there will be a reaction. And United might lose by a slim margin or might even snatch a draw.
Despite playing two embarrassingly awful games to start the season, Manchester United will enter this matchup with Liverpool confident of a victory.
Just over a month ago, United beat Liverpool 4-0 in preseason play. While this victory doesn’t actually mean much, it was important for the players’ mindset. It was important as they had lost to Liverpool 9-0 on aggregate over two games last season.
This, along with Liverpool’s own subpar campaign debut, will give the team some confidence. Erik ten Hag’s team will be going for all three points. Even if Rooney believes it will be at best a draw for United.
While for Liverpool, they would want to get all three points. Liverpool is already on the losing side of the title race. As Man City have taken an early 4-point lead over the Reds.
