3 Reasons Why Manchester United Will Struggle Against Liverpool

Manchester United take on their age-old rivals Liverpool on Sunday at Old Trafford. The two sides know that once the whistle blows, their form goes out of the window. Ole Gunnar Soskjaer is under pressure at Old Trafford right now but the board still seem to be backing their manager. However, he is losing the support of the Red Devils worldwide and the Norwegian knows he needs a win at all costs. However here are five reasons why Manchester United Will Struggle against Liverpool.

1. Injury issues for Manchester united

Raphael Varane and Antony Martial are out of the Liverpool clash tomorrow. Manchester United might have more issues as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Bruno Fernandes, Fred and Marcus Rashford are also doubtful. Bruno will undoubtedly be the biggest miss for the Red Devils are they need him to create chances. Manchester united fans will be praying that the Portuguese star is fit to play at least in the second half.

2. Mohamed Salah is in form of his life

Mohamed Salah is in the form of his life and he is bound to do his best in the biggest game of the weekend. The Egyptian has been touted as the best in the world right now and even Jurgen Klopp could not stop himself from comparing his star forward with Cristiano Ronaldo. Without a doubt, Salah will be the man to keep an eye on and with the Egyptian playing from the right flank, Luke Shaw and Maguire will have their work cut out.

3. Liverpool pressing tactic

Manchester United have not done well when teams have pressed them and that is precisely Jurgen Klopp's main tactic. The German manager loves to see his team press together and they will be looking to win the ball high up the pitch.
