The Premier League is finally back after two weeks of international football and what better way to commence action than with a battle between two Premier League giants. Manchester United will host Liverpool in their Matchday 9 clash at Old Trafford. Liverpool are currently in a rich vein of form this season after sealing a win in all their PL 2019-20 games so far. Manchester United, on the other hand, have experienced the worst start to a Premier League season with just nine points in eight games. The match is scheduled for October 20, 2019, 9 PM onwards (IST).
Although Manchester United are not the dominant force they once were especially since Sir Alex Fergusen retired, they still are undefeated in their last five Premier League home games against Liverpool (W3 D2). Only Manchester City (7) and Chelsea (6) have won more Premier League games at Old Trafford than Liverpool (5). Manchester United and Liverpool have shared the spoils in four of their last six Premier League meetings. This will be the first time since October 1996 that Liverpool will face Manchester United in the PL as table toppers.
Manchester United have been awarded more penalties against Liverpool (10) than any other side. After a brilliant 4-0 start against Chelsea on the opening matchday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have failed to score more than one goal in their last 10 games in all competitions. Liverpool's superstar Mohamed Salah has been quiet against Manchester United the four times he has faced them. The Egyptian King has failed to register a single goal or assist against the Red Devils in the Premier League.
