English Premier League: Gameweek 23 Preview

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero

Another week goes in the Premier League and not much has changed since the turn of the year. Liverpool are still well-clear at the top of the standings; Chelsea look to be in the driving seat for top four and Norwich seem destined for the drop after yet another demolition away from home. This weekend throws up more interesting ties with Liverpool’s humdinger against Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday being the biggest blockbuster. Elsewhere, there’s plenty of mouth-watering encounters which will draw us to our television screens, while we hope to make a bit of income while enjoying the best league on the planet.

Liverpool vs Manchester United Preview

Manchester United travel to Anfield on Sunday where they try to challenge an unbeaten Liverpool side who look like champions-in-waiting. The Red Devils face an uphill task of upsetting the Merseysiders, although they do remain the only side to stop Jurgen Klopp's men from winning this term. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were 8/1 outsiders heading to the Etihad last month, but defied the odds to claim an impressive 2-1 victory, and will hope to end Liverpool's unbeaten home run that now extends beyond two years.

Let’s see what gameweek 20 has in-store for us.
