Manchester United face an immense amount of pressure after a tough start to the season. The squad will go up against Liverpool on Monday afternoon.
After an 0-0-2 start to the Premier League season, United sit tied for last place in the table, even with West Ham United on goal differential (-5). If it feels like the sky is falling in Manchester, that’s likely because it is.
Old Trafford will be the site of Monday afternoon’s game. United face a tough test against top squad Liverpool, which finished second place in last season’s table, just behind champions Manchester City. Jurgen Klopp’s side will not show mercy, especially when every point is valuable, even early in the campaign.
