Liverpool vs Manchester United – Premier League : Jurgen Klopp and José Mourinho are two very good examples of the diversity of styles that exists on this Premier League…
That is increasingly more globalized and especially the main stage of the best trends in modern football.
In Liverpool, Klopp maintains his vivacity and a playing style with intense pressure as trademark. That style provides a great show for the fans and ends up concealing the real problems on the team’s performance and results.
José Mourinho had very different problems in Manchester
When he took over at United, he found a team dismantled by management errors, and there wasn’t any better way to rebuild it than building from the back.
They are not always able to show exciting and beautiful football, but Mourinho’s teams are all about efficiency, and he has slowly been giving a new life to the Red Devils.
The 7 points that separate these teams are the difference between one of the leaders and a team that has dropped to 7th place
and has the need to step up before being definitively out of the race for the Champions League’ spots, which is kind of the Holy Grail for every team who has made a big investment on a season.
Still, this Saturday’s match might end up being marked by absences. Sadio Mané should be unavailable for Liverpool, while Fellaini and Pogba are also injured on Manchester United.
This aspect might hurt Liverpool’s offensive strength, since their attack relies a lot on the creativity of the Senegalese.
But the absences on United hurt them even more, because it will remove consistency on their midfield.
Liverpool vs Manchester United – Betting Tip and Prediction:
It is expectable to see Manchester United giving Liverpool some initiative, with the responsibility falling to Coutinho and Salah, who are the most creative elements.
Withstanding the clash with a less physical midfield and finding a way to score are the objectives of the Portuguese manager on a match he will want to win.
