Key players

Analysis:
Manchester United have been quite impressive this season and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been a terrific manager. United are coming on the back off a thumping 6-2 win against Roma in the Europa League semi-final leg 1 and there are high chances that Ole’s side will reach the finals. Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandez had scored 2 goals each and were the architects of that resounding victory.

Liverpool on the other hand have some issues on their plate. They have been winless in their last 3 games and clearly, they are lacking momentum. They are coming on the back off an immediate draw against Newcastle United and the only goal-scorer for Liverpool was their premier striker, Mohammad Salah. Liverpool need to bring about their A-game in order to win against an in-form Manchester United.
