Manchester United faces off against Liverpool in an encounter between the two winningest teams in the history of the league
MIAMI – AUGUST 30, 2013- The Barclays Premier League is on Telemundo, the new home of English soccer, live on Sunday, September 1 at 8:25AM ET/7:25C with a clash of giants between Manchester United and Liverpool, two title contenders that face off in Week 3 of the tournament. Andrés Cantor will be narrating the play-by-play action that will take place at Anfield Road –Liverpool’s home stadium– alongside Sammy Sadovnik, who will provide the color commentary and analysis of a star-studded affair that includes stars such as Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie for the Red Devils and Steven Gerrard for Liverpool, all of them national team caliber players that can change the complexion of a match with their presence on the pitch. .
Manchester United will feature two of the world’s best players in Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie. Rooney is an all-time Manchester fan favorite and the fourth highest scorer in the history of the club, while Van Persie was the Barclays Premier League’s highest scorer last season with 26 goals. United’s bench will feature a unique sight this Sunday when Sir Alex Ferguson won’t be in the visiting bench for the first time since 1986, having retired after last season. David Moyes will be there instead as the new Red Devils’ manager.
Liverpool also has a Hispanic star in its squad, Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez, and they are perfect in the Barclays Premier League so far with two wins in the same amount of matches. Their standout players this weekend will be Steven Gerrard, an indispensable part for both his club and England’s national team, and Daniel Sturridge, a lethal striker that is currently playing at his best level having scored back-to-back game winning goals.
