The rivalry between the Reds (Liverpool) and the Red Devils (Manchester United) has been going on for a very long time, and it will continue to do so in the future. Although in the last few seasons, Manchester United did not win the Premier League after being left by Sir Alex Ferguson, this season the Red Devils looks to have a very big chance to win The Premier League.
We could see that Manchester United are unbeaten in the last ten matches of the season, and currently they have the same points with Liverpool on standings.
I see that the Manchester United’s players are very enthusiastic to play any games this season. They seem to have found a great momentum under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Can they really win The Premier League this season? Probably. Because Liverpool seem a bit weaker this season than the last one since several pillar players suffered injuries, such as Virgil van Dijk.
If Jurgen Klopp doesn't buy a new central defender in January, it is highly likely that the Red Devils will win the league. I am not a paranormal, but seeing the fact on the field, Manchester United is a potential rival for The Reds to win the title this season.
I'm sure Man United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is very happy with his players' performances lately. Mostly after they won against Aston Villa at Old Trafford last Saturday. The victory brought the Red Devils to second place in the Premier League standings.
In my opinion, Liverpool must be aware of Manchester United's moves so far. This season, the Reds Devils have been stronger than the last one, while the Reds seem to have weakened somewhat. This weakness occurred because several important Liverpool players were injured, so they had to be out for a long time.
This situation is not that good for The Reds. As a loyal fan, I hope Jurgen Klopp may act in the market within this transfer window. Liverpool need to sign one or two quality central defenders. The management team should move quickly in the market.
However, I don't want to see Liverpool to slip and the top position of the table is taken by the Red Devils. Thus, Liverpool must strengthen their defense by buying new defensive players.
North West Derby
The rivalry between the Reds and The Red Devils will be even bigger in the match on January 17, 2021, where Liverpool will host Man United at Anfield Stadium. It is a derby known as the North West Derby. The match will determine who is most worthy to win The Premier League this season.
The match will be also a proving ground for the two managers, Jurgen Klopp and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Who among them is the most superior in leading their players. I can't wait for that match to happen. But for sure, I support Liverpool to win.
After all, rivalry is a panacea for increasing the strength of a team. Without a rivalry, progress will not happen. I look at the rivalry between Liverpool and Man United in a positive point of view. Rivalry has made these two teams very strong in The Premier League since years ago.
The rivalry between the two teams has grown the economy in various fields related to football. The rivalry between the Reds and the Red Devils has made football an exciting and thrilling spectacle. And let’s watch the North West Derby. Enjoy, and let’s support our team.
