@JuanMataTouch writing about the big clash between Manchester United and Liverpool. As is obvious from the twitter handle @JuanMataTouch is a Manchester United fan.
I predict a 2-0 win for Manchester United at Old Trafford this Saturday. We have Juan Mata to destroy Liverpool again like last season. He bagged a brace as we beat them at Anfield. And what do Liverpool have? Lovren, who was given the steps last year at Old Trafford and then passed to Mata, who then assisted Manchester United’s final goal in a 3-0 mauling of Liverpool at the theater of dreams. Martial may get his debut vs LFC and we’ve already seen him wreck arsenal in the CL. Liverpool and Liverpool fans should already be scared seeing as you have Mignolet as your first choice goalkeeper. On the plus side Gerrard’s left so at least you can play with 11 men this time.
My team for the match would be De Gea; Darmian, Smalling, Blind/Rojo, Shaw; Carrick, Schneiderlin; Mata, Herrera, Depay and Rooney. Tactics would be to do the exact same thing we did last season when we did the double over them, and possibly sub in Martial because we’ll shut the game down before half time anyways. Bastian can come in too in the second half to control the game and De Gea should be in a fit mental state to play as well. But as we all know, it’s a process.
