After their draw in the Premier League (0-0), the two teams meet for the round of 16 of the FA Cup.
The two historic rivals of the Premier League never leave each other. After a tasteless “Derby of england “in the league, it is in the cup that Manchester United and Liverpool will explain themselves.
This time, there will necessarily be a winner and a loser at the end of the meeting. As a reminder, the “replay” in the event of a draw does not take place this season in the FA Cup, due to the health crisis.
Cup match requires, the two teams are likely to turn their workforce strongly, despite this prestigious poster. Reds and Red Devils have only the Premier League in mind, and will not want to lose valuable Cup strength.
A bench depth that will be important. In Manchester, Ole Gunnar Solskjær can count on a full squad. Apart from the absence of Marcos Rojo due to injury, but that everyone has forgotten.
On the other hand, it is more problematic for Jürgen Klopp. With the absences of Van Dijk, Gomez, Tsimikas, Jota and Keïta, the German coach does not have such great freedom of turnover. In defense, Liverpool are decimated, and will therefore have to trust young people.
