Greetings my SunSport family, I hope you are all well and are staying Covid-19 free.
Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls stop whatever you’re doing because it’s time for Sunday’s main event!
Football is a much more even sport these days in terms of quality and financial power (unless you are Newcastle United of course) but once upon a time, there were only two clubs who used to dominate the English game.
Our live blog this afternoon covers two of the most decorated teams in the division and two sides who arguably have the fiercest rivalry in world football.
People put your hands together for the showcase match which is happening at the Theatre Of Dreams…
Manchester United vs Liverpool.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer contributed to some of the Red Devils’ success as a player and it was his goal which famously helped Manchester United clinch the treble back in 1999, but the Norwegian’s managerial career has hit a few stumbling blocks.
The 4-2 defeat by Leicester last week was United’s third consecutive Premier League fixture without a win resulting in them falling further in the table and the pressure rising on Solskjaer.
However, the Red Devil’s somehow managed to turn a 2-0 deficit on its head and beat Italian outfit Atalanta 3-2 in their midweek Champions League fixture.
As for Liverpool, they are in sensational form this season. Jurgen Klopp’s men hit Watford for five last weekend and they remain the only team in the Premier League to have not suffered a defeat yet.
In addition to that, Liverpool did the unthinkable in their mid-week Champions League fixture which was to go to the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium and beat Atletico Madrid 3-2 in what was one of the ties of the round.
However form tends to go out the window when it comes to huge fixtures such as this one so strap on your seatbelts people, we could be in for the ride of our lives.
Kick-off is scheduled for 16:30pm but before that we will be bringing you all the latest gossip, injury news, quotes and the highly anticipated first eleven’s so make sure to stay locked in.
