Liverpool vs Man Utd: The Premier League match between Liverpool and Man Utd is taking place on Wednesday, April 20 at 12:45 AM Nepali time.
On Tuesday night, two English football behemoths competing for separate end-of-season goals face off at Anfield in the Premier League, with Liverpool hosting Manchester United.
Jurgen Klopp’s side comes into the game having just qualified for the FA Cup final, while Manchester United owe their 3-2 league victory to a present and former hero.
Another trip to Wembley awaits this rampant Liverpool side, whose fans are growing more optimistic about a possible quadruple with each passing week. One domestic title is already in the bag, they are potentially only 270 minutes away from a seventh Champions League crown, and another trip to Wembley awaits this rampant Liverpool side, who are potentially only 270 minutes away from a seventh Champions League crown.
In their FA Cup semi-final, the Reds blew Manchester City out of the water with three early goals – two from Sadio Mane and another from Ibrahima Konate – and Pep Guardiola’s side couldn’t muster a miraculous comeback despite Bernardo Silva and Jack Grealish restoring parity.
The Easter weekend has not been kind to Liverpool’s swollen legs, but the AXA treatment room is almost empty, and Klopp’s team is still within touching distance of reigning Premier League champions City after salvaging a 2-2 draw at the Etihad last week.
With City not playing again until Wednesday, a win in front of their own fans might dethrone the league leaders for at least 24 hours, and an eight-game winning streak in all competitions is surely a formula for success ahead of Tuesday’s clash.
The Reds have also scored at least two goals in each of their last five games on the continent and domestically, and have won 10 games in a row at Anfield in the Premier League – no English top-flight side has performed better at home this season – so their opponents will have their work cut out for them to add to Klopp’s side’s meager seven home goals in the league this season.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been dubbed the problem at Manchester United this season, was very much the solution when Norwich City came to town, responding to the Portuguese’s early double with Kieran Dowell’s header and Teemu Pukki’s near-post finish in front of a disgruntled Old Trafford crowd.
With 76 minutes on the clock, Ronaldo poised over a free-kick with his trademark posture before unleashing an unstoppable attempt into the net, earning his 60th career hat-trick and saving Man United’s bacon in the process.
While manager-elect Erik ten Hag may not have been thinking about the 3-2 win as he prepares for Ajax’s KNVB-Beker final, Ralf Rangnick, the current man in charge, has seen his side leapfrog Arsenal into fifth place in the Premier League table, despite Tottenham Hotspur’s three-point lead and superior goal difference.
The defeat of relegation favorites Norwich is only Man United‘s second win in eight games in all competitions, and they haven’t maintained a clean sheet on the road in the Premier League since December, losing two consecutive games on rival turf to Manchester City and Everton.
No Red Devils fan needs reminding of the 5-0 humiliation they suffered at the hands of Liverpool back in October, so vengeance will undoubtedly be on the visitors’ minds this week. However, they have failed to win at Anfield in any competition since 2016, and have only scored once in their last six meetings.
