This is Liverpool’s first match since suffering heartbreak in the Champions League final against Real Madrid.
Darwin Nunez is the Reds’ most eye-catching pre-season arrival so far, with the Uruguay international seriously bolstering Jurgen Klopp’s attack following the departure of Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich. Nunez will link up with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino in what is sure to be another ruthless Liverpool forward line.
Manchester United, meanwhile, begin another summer rebuild, this time under Erik ten Hag. The Dutchman will be tasked with lifting the Red Devils from their miserable sixth-place finish from last season, back into the Champions League spots and in contention for cup titles.
It’ll be no easy task with Cristiano Ronaldo’s future up in the air and serious strengthening required in all areas, but Ten Hag comes with plenty of pedigree after leading Ajax to immense levels of success.

Liverpool vs Man Utd match stats
Liverpool have won their last three games against Man Utd by a 13-2 aggregate scoreline. In fact, the Red Devils have won just one of their last nine in this historic fixture.
Mohamed Salah was Liverpool’s top Premier League scorer last season with 23 goals, but he was backed up by the likes of Mane on 16 and Jota on 15, while Luis Diaz scored four times in just 13 appearances following his mid-season arrival.
By contrast, Cristiano Ronaldo was the only Man Utd player to score more than 10 goals, eventually reaching 18. The Portuguese icon is absent from this tour and may have played his last game for the club.
Liverpool have lost just 15 of their 152 Premier League games across the last four seasons, finishing no lower than third. That’s just three more than Man Utd lost last season alone, while they’ve finished sixth twice during the same period.
