After falling behind 1-0, Liverpool got the equalizer from their famed striker Mohamed Salah at the 63-minute mark. Sadio Mane then got the injury time winner for Liverpool from the penalty spot. With a win over the EPL champs, Liverpool will be riding high into this one against Manchester United.
Manchester United What to Watch
The 20-time English Premier League champions are a pragmatic team that likes to capitalize on individual opponent’s weakness rather than stick to one particular set of tactical weapons. Although manager Jose Mourinho is labeled as a defensive minded coach his squad has proven time and again to have the ability to counter with devastating attacks when warranted. As a result, Manchester United is one of the more balanced squads that can be found in this tournament.
Liverpool What to Watch
Liverpool is right behind Manchester United when it comes to a tradition of excellence and winning. As a matter of fact, they have posted a total of 18 EPL titles while boasting the most UEFA Champions League titles of any English club (five). Liverpool is one of the most appealing teams in the world to watch thanks in large part to the leadership of manager Jurgen Klopp. The German coach is heralded for his counter press tactics that put devastating pressure on opponents while creating multiple scoring opportunities each match for his team.
The Difference Maker
Liverpool possesses the one man that can make a huge difference on the pitch in Mohamed Salah, who became the first player on their team to score more than 40 goals in a season in 31 years. Salah is the perfect fit to finish the quick precession counters of his exhilarating club. He’ll be the most impactful player on the Big House pitch!
