Manchester United and their arch-rivals, Liverpool will lock horns on Monday in what would have been the most exciting and biggest game of the new Premier League season so far.

But supporters of both giants may not expect so much from teams that have started the season very poorly, especially the Red Devils.

While the pressure is mostly on Liverpool with Jurgen Klopp’s side widely tipped to challenge Manchester City for the title this season, Manchester United, who have fired two managers under one year, were not expected to start the new campaign so helplessly with the coming of Erik ten Hag.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are languishing in the 12th position in the league table, already four points behind fellow title contenders, Manchester City, who have resumed their position in the league’s summit.

A defeat for both Manchester United and Liverpool would be an early confirmation that either of them may rather be fighting to avoid relegation instead of chasing the title. But it is still too early to draw up such conclusions.
