(($LIVE-SCORE$)) Man United vs Liverpool Live Free Online on 17 December 2023
Liverpool is going head to head with Manchester United starting on 17 Dec 2023 at 16:30 UTC at Anfield stadium, Liverpool city, England. The match is a part of the Premier League.
Liverpool welcome Manchester United to Anfield on Sunday where the Red Devils were taken apart 7-0 last season by a rampant Reds side. Jurgen Klopp's men host Erik ten Hag's side with the visitors at arguably their lowest ebb after crashing out of Europe altogether following their UEFA Champions League loss at home to Bayern Munich in midweek. Liverpool could set a Premier League attendance record now that part of the Anfield Road Stand is open a month earlier than planned which could see a surge in numbers close to 57,000 for the game. The Reds benefitted from Aston Villa's win over Arsenal at the summit and now lead the Gunners by one point and the Villans by two so there is a possibility that Klopp's side will be playing catchup by the time this one kicks off. A loss to Union SG in midweek was not damaging given that a last 16 berth in the UEFA Europa League was already locked in while it is seven EPL wins on the bounce for Liverpool at Anfield. Not exactly welcoming reading for United who lurch from crisis to crisis at present and are in a terrible state following their European adventure coming to an end just days after a chastening loss at home to Bournemouth. If there is a positive, perhaps it is that United do not have to face Old Trafford for this one given the anger generated by the latest turn of events.

Liverpool: Mohamed Salah, Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold all missed the trip to Belgium on Thursday due to Klopp resting them so expect them to return. However, Joel Matip, Stefan Bajcetic, Andrew Robertson and Thiago Alcantara are all out until 2024 while Diogo Jota and Alexis Mac Allister will likely miss this one and another week or so. Salah now has 150 Premier League goals to his name and his 12 goals against United is his highest tally against a single team across his entire career.
Potential Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Szoboszlai, Endo, Gravenberch; Salah, Nunez, Diaz.
Manchester United: Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw both picked up injuries against Bayern although Ten Hag expects Shaw and the ill Marcus Rashford to make it for this one. Maguire is out along with Anthony Martial, Mason Mount, Jadon Sancho, Amad Diallo, Christian Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro and Tyrell Malacia. Victor Lindelof has a knock while Bruno Fernandes is suspended so Kobbie Mainoo or Hannibal Mejbri could start unless Donny van de Beek back is given a rare chance.
Potential Manchester United XI: Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Evans, Varane, Shaw; McTominay, Amrabat, Mainoo; Antony, Hojlund, Rashford.
Marc Skinner's side were expected to challenge for the WSL title after finishing second in the 2022/23 campaign, although a mixed bag of results so far sees them sitting four points off Chelsea at the summit.
Liverpool, who won the WSL in 2021/22, are making encouraging progress in their bid to bounce back from last season's disappointing seventh-place finish, and a victory at Leigh Sports Village would see them join their rivals on 18 points.
It is the second meeting of the season between the two teams, as United forward Nikita Parris scored the only goal of the game in last month's WSL Cup clash.
Liverpool head into the match in a winning mood after getting the better of Everton in that competition in midweek, while United scored a comfortable victory at home to Leicester in their cup tie.
With United having crashed out of Europe during the week, Jurgen Klopp ’s high-flying Reds will be keen to inflict more pain on Erik ten Hag. The majority of those in attendance will hope to see a repeat of the 7-0 thrashing Liverpool inflicted on United back in March as they seek to maintain their place at the top of the Premier League.
As they top the Premier League, Liverpool also are leading the way in terms of form and have taken 14 points in their past six matches with four wins and two draws. United have also fared well in the league lately, but last weekend’s 3-0 defeat at home to Bournemouth put an abrupt end to what had been a strong run of form.
Ten Hag is now under extreme pressure, with United’s Champions League exit meaning they will not compete in any European football for the remainder of this season and any hopes of silverware hinge on their FA Cup performances. Liverpool, meanwhile, are in a very different position and are in contention to win every competition they entered at the start of the season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side thrashed their bitter rivals 7-0 in the corresponding fixture last season and will be out to make another statement about their title credentials.
Liverpool moved top of the table with their late 2-1 win at Crystal Palace last weekend and can move six points clear of Manchester City after their 2-2 draw with Palace on Saturday.
