Since that match on Dec. 19 against Crystal Palace. Liverpool only managed to win one out of three last matches, and their goal drought is at 252 minutes. This is very serious for a team like Liverpool. They had eight shots on goal in that match against Palace but have just seven in their last 270 minutes of action. Their expected goals in those last three games is a total of 4.48 with 45 shots. But they only converted on of them. In simple words, they are creating enough but they are not finishing them.
Manchester United are in red home in Premier league currently. The Red Devils have gone 11 matches unbeaten, with five wins of their last six fixtures. The defence is still a problem for them because they conceded seven goals in their last 6 games. But they have conceded only one of those has come in their last three. Now, that was against some inconsistent attacks in Burnley, and Wolves, though the surprisingly potent Aston Villa was also in that mix. Against Liverpool, it could be much different. Though the Reds are struggling in attack, they are bound to bounce back at some point. To avoid it being here, Harry Maguire and company must limit the mistakes that saw them bounced from the Champions League in December. Playing the ball on the ground at the back, keeping it simple and being aware of their surroundings will be crucial
Two of the three leading contenders for the Premier League title are facing off. Yet neither side has quite clicked into gear on a consistent basis throughout this season. There are few greater indications as to how curious this COVID-defined campaign has been than the fact that neither Manchester United nor Liverpool quite seem to have their midfield working to the best of its abilities.
