xG Manchester United vs Liverpool 2022 | Expected Goals Stats MUFC 2-1 LFC August 22

By Soccer Blog | Aug 23, 2022

Here is a look at the xG (expected goals) stats from Manchester United vs Liverpool on 22 August, 2021. United won 2-1 to move off the bottom of the league table- a much needed win for Erik Ten Hag’s side after losing to Brighton on the opening day of the season and being demolished 4-0 by Brentford in Week 2.

Liverpool dominated the stats (see below), but created fewer clear-cut opportunities- the two Man United ones where they nearly put into their own net (the almost Bruno own goal v Liverpool and the almost Martinez OG against LFC saved by De Gea) were probably closer chances than any the Reds themselves created. Both of those near own goals would obviously not count for xG though.
