Welcome to this fantastic game and today we have Liverpool take on Manchester United! At Anfield and even though Leicester, Arsenal and Manchester City look like they are making it a 3 way race at the moment, this will still a very good game, even if neither team is in the top 4 of the Premier League at the moment, I am still really looking forward to watching this one, it’s always an exciting game and I can only imagine the atmosphere that will be at Anfield today!
Manchester United well, haven’t being impressing so much as of late, the majority of their games are 0-0 at the end of the first half but surely they will come alive for this game! It’s not just 3 points that matter today, it’s pride and bragging rights! Many say that Man United have been misfiring and not attacking as much as they would like and had an awful December but it’s a new year and despite barely scrapping past Sheffield United, they did score 3 against Newcastle, albeit they didn’t win that game but they have beaten Swansea this year…it’s a win!
Liverpool and Arsenal had a classic this week and as an Arsenal Fan, I’ll admit that Liverpool deserved the win! They were the better team and I hear a lot of people complain that Jurgen Klopp is an attention seeker when he celebrates….are you serious? Grow up people, their is nothing wrong with a manager being passionate about the game! I like how he celebrates and puts everything into the game! It’s fun and it shows how much it means to him…you’d rather he stands there and do nothing?
I think today will be a draw! Here are my reasons for that….mainly that Man United are very good at drawing games and despite Liverpool being the better team against Arsenal, they were still held to a draw in the end, it just looks like a draw is written all over this one in my eyes but I think it will have a few goals in it so…2-2 I’ll go for today
