What channel is Man Utd v Liverpool Premier League match on? Kick off time, live stream and latest team news

Manchester United renew their rivalry with Liverpool in a crunch game for the visitors on Thursday.

Man Utd v Liverpool

Manchester United’s clash with Liverpool has been rescheduled following the original game being postponed due to protests at Old Trafford last weekend.


Liverpool are in desperate need of a result when they rock up at Old Trafford on Sunday seeking to end a winless streak that has put their top-four hopes for this season into severe jeopardy.

The Reds come into the clash sixth in the table and four points off the Champions League spots, with just five Premier League fixtures remaining.

West Ham and Chelsea stand in Jurgen Klopp’s way of nailing Champions League football for next season – and Manchester United would dearly love to deny their rivals that privilege.

United drew at Leeds last time out to end a five-game winning streak in the top flight that has all-but secured them a second-place finish to the season.

But boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will likely have to tinker his XI somewhat as he grapples with the newly-reshuffled schedule. United play Leicester on the Tuesday, just two days before this clash, but have the weekend off.

Our prediction: Man Utd v Liverpool

United have a busy schedule ahead given the rescheduling. Expect a steady game akin to the 0-0 draw played out between these sides back in January.

The hosts don’t need to risk too much as they are comfortable in second place. The impetus is on Liverpool to attack and take the game to United. How much free rein Klopp gives his troops remains to the seen, but at this stage of the season Liverpool need to take risks.

That strategy could pay off or work in United’s favour, depending on how clinical the likes of Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota are. Solskjaer will likely be the more conservative tactician and salvage a point.

Our prediction: Man Utd 1-1 Liverpool (13/2 at bet365)
