Manchester United v Liverpool - Premier League Boot Preview

It is no surprise that Adidas and Nike heavily dominate tonight's selection with 19 of the 22 expected starting players. However, especially Manchester United's Boots XI stands out - 9 of 11 players wear the Nike Mercurial.

Meanwhile, Liverpool's expected front three all wear the same boot - the Adidas X Speedportal. 1.

Overall, Liverpool's and Manchester United's squads are more or less split between Adidas and Nike. There are just six players who do not wear boots from the big two, of which four wear Puma and two a "small brand" (Trent Alexander-Arnold - Under Armour and Harvey Elliott - New Balance).
