In the Liverpool attention is drawn to the context of the 26th “turn” of the Premier League, where on Sunday (5/3, 18:30) the team of the same name welcomes the Manchester United in the great derby of England.
The hosts returned to winning ways the previous matchday with a 2-0 win over Wolves. However, they are still outside the top 4 (6th, 39b.), where they are making an effort to catch up. On the other hand, the “red devils” are in excellent form coming from two consecutive wins in the league (against Leeds and Leicester) but mainly having celebrated the victory of the League Cup over Newcastle – their first title since 2017 – and taking the qualification over Barcelona for the “16” of the Europa League. They are in 3rd place with 49 points, being at -6 from Manchester City and at -11 from Arsenal who have one match more.
As far as the battle of the top is concerned, the Arsenal – an impressive (4-0) midweek performance against Everton – is now at +5 from the “citizens”. Both have domestic obligations. The “gunners” welcome her Bournemouth (4/3, 17:00), while his team Pep Guardiola the Newcastle (4/3, 14:30), in the very interesting match that opens the program of the competition.
She will look for her return to victory Chelsea opposite to Leeds (4/3, 17:00), with Graham Potter on the… ropes, while at the same time the Tottenham has a difficult task at home Wolves. Important battle to stay between Nottingham Forest and Everton (5/3, 4:00 p.m.).
