Liverpool – Manchester United headlines This Weekend’s Soccer on TV

Much will be learned about Manchester United’s credibility in what looks like a return to the Premier League title conversation on Sunday.

For the first time under his leadership, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men look to be title contenders after taking care of business in league play en route to winning seven in the 11-game unbeaten run they’re on; positioning themselves nicely for the event that Liverpool was to slip.

Slip they did. Again, and again. The Reds have gone three consecutive Premier League competitions without a win, punctuating the streak with a loss to Southampton last week. The loss handed Manchester United the lead in the title race, but the defending champions can take it back and send a clear message that the fight isn’t over on Sunday when the two square off.

Here is a look at This Weekend’s Top 5 Matches to Watch, along with a full rundown of the soccer viewing options available this weekend:

Top 5 Matches to Watch

  1. Liverpool vs Manchester United –  A six-pointer for control of the world’s biggest league, enough said.
  2. Barcelona vs Athletic Club – Things do not look great at the moment for Barca’s La Liga title hopes, but it can salvage the year with raising the Supercopa de España. It goes without saying, but it may also be Lionel Messi’s last trophy day performance for the team.
  3. Inter Milan vs Juventus – Second vs fourth respectively, neither of these Italian heavyweights can afford to lose ground in their hurry to catch up to AC Milan in the Serie A title picture.
  4. Porto vs Benfica – The most famous rivalry Portugal has to offer, Friday’s O Classico will see the winner as the last likely credible threat to Sporting CP’s runaway act in Primera Liga.
  5. Monterrey vs América – After a supremely disappointing 2020 in terms of league play, Monterrey needs to show its fans something to get excited about. A statement win, and possibly staying perfect through two in the new season would be just that.

  1. “Liverpool vs Manchester United – A six-pointer for control of the world’s biggest league, enough said.”
    .
    No.
    .
    It is absolutely NOT enough said, if you fail to acknowledge that this key game is NOT on TV, even though the NBC networks have absolutely no other sports to broadcast during that time, only …
    .
    … wait for it …
    .
    .
    .
    cheesy car auctions.

    .
    Nothing to do with sports, and a huge slap in the face to all US soccer fans, who would have really enjoyed the game, and raised the network’s ratings.
    .
    But no. The NBC executives apparently want to play dog in the manger, even when they have nothing else to broadcast at all.

    .
    For heaven’s sake, everyone, don’t reward them by giving them all your data cheaply in return for intrusive, invasive advertising on a tiny screen with lag time. This cheapskate bait and switch has got to be stopped in its tracks.

    • great comment! all folks would have seen is Paul Tierney blowing his whistle BEFORE stoppage time had expired while Sadio Mane was in on goal vs. MU…LOL

      we all missed the EPL cheating for MU again as if Fergie was still on the sidelines. I won’t watch another EPL game again. Eunuchs
