It is still early in the season in the EPL play and both of these teams are still in the mix, but the one big question for each is what is up with their attack?
Man U and Liverpool each had 7 points in league play and are in the top 10, but in 4 league matches the Reds have only scored 2 goals and United has only scored 3. Liverpool is the big betting underdog in this game on the road at Old Trafford and they were embarrassed at home in their last match losing 3-0 to West Ham.
These EPL play in=s back in swing after a week off because of European Championship qualifiers.
Man U had concerns for the offense with the off-season departures of Javier Hernandez, Robin van Persie, and Radamel Falcao and while they brought in 19-year old striker Anthony Martial to pair along with Wayne Rooney that duo has not looked sharp to say the least.
The Reds were hoping that Daniel Sturridge would be back in this match and he could spark the offense, but it looks like his return from an injury is still a few weeks ago.
Liverpool had played solid defense in their opening 3 matches to the league season when they kept 3 clean sheets, but then came the 3-0 drubbing at the hands of West Ham. This match will be won and lost in the midfield and Man U may have the slight advantage in that area of the pitch.
If there is any match where Rooney can snap out of his slump it is against the rival Reds and he will be counted on to pressure their defensive back.
Last season Man U beat Liverpool twice and even though they will play a cautious match I see the same thing happening this Saturday night.
