Liverpool vs Manchester United Preview

Mohamed Salah and Bruno Fernandes aim to inspire their teams to victory on Sunday

Two of England’s biggest heavyweights take to the ring this Sunday, both in heavyweight form as Liverpool and Manchester United challenge strongly to separate themselves as contenders from the pretenders. Jurgen Klopp’s men come into this tie with the best home form in the division, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils have the best away record in the top flight. But can Solskjaer do what no club has managed to do since April 2017 and beat Liverpool at Anfield? The Norwegian boss has managed some unthinkable results in his tenure at United, but winning Sunday’s showdown would certainly top the charts, while it would also be a massive statement to the rest of the league.

DStv Premiership: Gameweek 11 Preview

Mamelodi Sundowns continue their journey to win four straight league titles


It was entertaining as usual in the DStv Premiership as plenty of upsets occurred last weekend, while some thoughtless refereeing decisions spoilt some of the heavyweight bouts last round, particularly in the tie between Orlando Pirates and Swallows FC. Their 1-1 draw at Orlando Stadium maintained Swallows’ unbeaten run, alongside Golden Arrows and Mamelodi Sundowns, who fought off Chippa United and Baroka respectively. This weekend, there’s plenty to feast our eyes upon. Saturday, SuperSport United and Sundowns lock horns in the Tshwane derby, while Cape Town City host Kaizer Chiefs later on the same day. On Sunday, Benni McCarthy gets another taste of local rivalry when AmaZulu host Maritzburg United in the KZN derby.

Big spenders Chelsea have taken themselves out of the title race after slipping down to eighth in the Premier League table, while Manchester United are now being talked about as contenders to Liverpool’s crown. The Red Devils are on a 10-game unbeaten run in the league having won eight and drawn two in that period.
