The Liverpool vs. Manchester United match will be played on Sunday, December 16, at the Anfield Stadium, Liverpool. This is the derby match of English Premier League round 17. After 16 matches played, Liverpool is the leader with 42 points, while Manchester United is 6th with only 26 points.


  • Liverpool is in a series of four victories in all competitions. During that period, they conceded only one goal, while they scored nine. In the league, Liverpool has five victories in a row, and they are the only undefeated team.
  • Manchester United won only two out of their last seven matches in all competitions. That wins came against Young Boys and Fulham, both at home. Their last league victory in away matches came against Bournemouth, in the beginning of November.


In their last ten meetings, Liverpool won only two matches, Manchester United had four victories, while four games ended in a draw. However, in the last seven matches they played against each other, Manchester United recorded only one win.


After Chelsea defeated Manchester City in the previous round, Liverpool climbed to the top of Premier League table. Only one week later, they have to win their derby match against the arch rivals to stay on the top. Liverpool has numerous injury concerns at the moment. Jurgen Klopp will have to start with a midfielder on right-back position probably, since Alexander-Arnold, Gomez and Clyne are all injured, while the perfect man for the job, James Milner, is doubtful.

Manchester United was defeated in Valencia in the last match of Champions League group phase, but they already secured the place in the knockout phase of the competition. It was clear they have the match against Liverpol on their minds already. Mourinho will probably send a defensive lineup on the pitch and wait for his chance to counter his rivals.
