Manchester United suffered a rough 1-0 loss away to West Brom in their last Premier League game. The loss dropped them out of the European football positions in the table and has them just three points ahead of Liverpool.

The Red Devils were beaten 2-1 by FC Midtjylland in the first leg of their matchup in the last round, but promptly throttled the Danish side 5-1 in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford.

Liverpool was not exactly exempt for a bit a scare either. The Reds drew 0-0 with Augsburg in the first leg and managed a 1-0 victory in the second leg to ensure that they advance to the Round of 16.

United is still without a slew of players like Wayne Rooney and Ashley Young, and youngster Jesse Lindgard will miss out here due to suspension.

These two clubs certainly despise one another, but It’s been a one-sided affair in recent matchups. Manchester United has won four-straight meetings with Liverpool in all competitions heading into Thursday’s meeting.
