  • Kenya’s betting giant, Betika, brings you an in-depth analysis of the Man Utd versus Liverpool clash, arguably the most-watched football match in the world. 

    What better time to watch this game than an early season English Premier League clash. Cristiano Ronaldo’s Man Utd welcome Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday, October 24, at 6:30 pm. 

    It is anticipated that the match may define the two teams early efforts to stamp authority in the 2021/22 season especially with Man Utd struggling while in-form Liverpool is enjoying an eight-game unbeaten run. The Jurgen Klopp coached team is the only unbeaten team this season. 

    Liverpool has W5 D3 L0 games while Man Utd has W4 D2 L2. 

    Despite Man Utd approaching this match motivated by its 3-2 comeback win against Atalanta FC in the Uefa Champions League, head coach Ole Gunner Solksjaer is cautious of their poor run in the Premier League. 

    Utd lost 4-2 to Leicester City and 1-0, drew 1-1 with Everton and lost 1-0 to Aston Villa in its last three league matches. Liverpool on the other end thrashed Watford 5-0, drew 2-2 with league champions Manchester City and 3-3 with high flying minions Brentford. 

    Liverpool also recorded a 3-2 win over Atletico Madrid in their Uefa Champions League clash which saw talisman Mohamed Salah score his 12th goal of the season. 7 goals in the Premier League and 5 in the Champions League. 

    Salah has scored 7 goals in Liverpool’s last 5 consecutive matches. This poses a headache for Man Utd who have struggled across all fixtures. Ronaldo has a paltry 6 goals only this season, 3 in the premier league and three in the champions league.
