Liverpool vs Manchester United: times, how to watch on TV, stream online | Premier League
Liverpool host Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday 5 March, with kick-off at 11:30 a.m. ET / 8:30 a.m. PT.
Liverpool put nine goals past Manchester United without reply in last season’s Premier League, which makes how the two teams have fared in 2022-23 all the more surprising. Erik Ten Hag’s Red Devils are the team going into the clash at Anfield desperate for a victory to keep their slim hopes of a league title alive, while the Merseysiders, 10 points behind their rivals in the table, need the points to stay in the race for a Champions League spot.
A goal for Mohammad Salah against United will see him tie Robbie Fowler as Liverpool’s all-time top Premier league scorer.

Reds back in the hunt for the Champions League
It’s safe to say that this season has not gone as well as Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp would’ve hoped, although things could be worse were it not for a recent upturn in fortunes. The Reds’ results in the last few weeks has been dominated by their 5-2 home defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 but their domestic form has turned around drastically in the last few weeks. Liverpool started 2023 by taking just one point from a possible 12 in the league, which severely dented their hopes of a top-four finish. But Klopp’s side have now taken 10 points from the last 12 available, which has brought their back into contention; they currently sit six points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur with a game in hand. The game is expected to come too soon for Luis Díaz and Thiago Alcánatara, while Joe Gomez, Naby Keita and Arthur Melo are all fitness doubts, although none will likely start in any case.
Manchester United have been England’s form team since the World Cup break but will be cursing a last-gasp defeat to league leaders Arsenal, which leaves them looking at the top of the table with hope rather than expectation. The Reds go into the weekend 11 points behind the Gunners, which could be extended before they kick off at Anfield. Ten Hag’s side will, however, have two games in hand once the Mikel Arteta’s men have faced Bournemouth on Saturday. Bizarrely, eight of the Red Devils’ last 10 matches have been played at Old Trafford, where they have won 18 and drawn two of their last 20 fixtures. Their form on the road has been rather less impressive, with two victories in their last five away matches. Left-back turned centre-back Luke Shaw is the main fitness doubt, while there are also question marks over the fitness of Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial. Christian Eriksen is still unavailable due to an ankle injury.

Liverpool vs Manchester United prediction
Liverpool completely tore United apart in both matches last season but Ten Hag has already started turning the tide with a victory in the reverse fixture in August. The hosts’ improved recent form and the fact that the game isn’t at Old Trafford means it’s a close one to call.
Prediction: Liverpool 1-1 Manchester United
