5 reasons Liverpool will destroy Manchester United in the third week of the 2022-2023 Premier League, will be discussed by Okezone. As is known, the match will take place at Old Trafford, Manchester, Tuesday, August 23, 2022, early morning WIB.
Both teams entered this match limping. Liverpool have drawn twice and Man United have lost twice. However, Liverpool is still the favorite in this match. Here are five reasons Liverpool will destroy Man United in Week Three of the 2022-2023 Premier League:
5. Manchester United’s defense is fragile
Man United have lost twice this season. Most recently, Man United were slaughtered by Brentford 0-4. The crushing defeat illustrates how fragile Man United’s defense is.
This problem has existed since last season, but has not been resolved until now. The fragility of Man United’s defense will be a weak point when they meet Liverpool who have Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz.
4. Liverpool Have a Clear Game
Since Jurgen Klopp took charge of Liverpool on October 8, 2015, Liverpool’s game has slowly transformed. Now, Liverpool has played like a machine that automatically carries out Klopp’s tactics and game philosophy.
Although two draws at the start of this season, that does not mean Klopp’s tactics and tactics and game philosophy are not working. Because, Liverpool dominated the previous two matches, but the results were not in their favor.
Against Man United, Liverpool is predicted to play even better. Because, an evaluation will be carried out by Jurgen Klopp in order to minimize the shortcomings in Liverpool’s performance.
3. Manchester United has not been able to carry out Erik Ten Hag’s tactics
Erik Ten Hag came up with a tactical and philosophy of the game, but it has not been applied well by the Man United players. Erik Ten Hag’s tactics and playing philosophy went well in pre-season as there was no pressure on the Man United players.
When the season started, the Man United players had not been able to apply Erik Ten Hag’s tactics and game philosophy under pressure. Man United players need adaptation because they are not used to building attacks from behind.
2. Liverpool’s mentality is more mature
Liverpool have shown their mental strength in recent seasons. Liverpool have almost always competed for trophies since the 2018-2019 season, except in the 2020-2021 season when a storm of injuries hit them.
Along with the experience of competing for the title, Liverpool’s mentality has also been trained. After two draws, Liverpool is believed to have the mentality to get up even though they have to play at Old Trafford.
1. Chronic Manchester United Problem
Man United are trying to get up under Erik Ten Hag after slumping in the last few seasons. The hope of rising had appeared because of the pretty good results achieved by Man United in the 2022 pre-season.
However, Man United’s journey when the season actually started, actually said otherwise. Man United slumped with two defeats to weaker teams, namely Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford.
The defeat showed that Man United’s problems were more chronic than initially thought. Despite having received a playing philosophy from Erik Ten Hag, Man United have not been able to apply it properly. In addition, the slow recruitment of new players has also made Man United’s game not level up from last season.
The urging of supporters against the Glazer family, the owners of Man United, to step down is even more heated. Management problems that also clouded the condition of Man United.
