Home Team: Manchester United

Manchester United suffered their first defeat under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer against PSG last Wednesday, and many onlookers were wondering how they would bounce back, after an experience which was a reality check for the side. However, this Manchester United showed their true character, by going to Stamford Bridge and performing excellently to win 2-0 in a tactically astute performance. Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera were both in scintillating form, and both managed to get on the score sheet with two fantastic headers.

The slim chances of winning the Champions League have all-but-ended, but Solskjaer has put Manchester United in a solid position to claim top four this season, as well as a decent cup run in the FA Cup. Manchester United may be without Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard for this fixture, but other than that, have no worries with injuries. They’ll want to win this match so gravely, to prevent Liverpool from winning the Premier League.

Away Team: Liverpool

Liverpool are one game behind Manchester City, but they have this match as their game in hand. It’s possibly the toughest fixture for Liverpool on paper, but a win here would send a resounding message to Manchester City. Avoiding defeat for Liverpool would put them top again but considering they have had the chance to be 7 and 10 points ahead of Manchester City this calendar year, they’ll be disappointed if their lead at the top is only 1 point come Sunday evening.

Liverpool have some positive news regarding injuries, as they have almost an entire squad to choose from, and even Alex Oxlade Chamberlain will be back to the starting line-up in a month’s time after a lengthy lay-off. Liverpool had dropped four points to West Ham and Leicester recently, but managed to get back to winning ways against Bournemouth. Can they go to Old Trafford and pick up a famous victory?

Head to Head Manchester United vs Liverpool

Liverpool defeated Manchester United in the reverse fixture back in December, which was Jose Mourinho’s last game in charge. That 3-1 win was Liverpool’s first Premier League win against Manchester United since 2014. Since then, Manchester United had won 5 and drawn 3 in the game at Anfield and Old Trafford. Liverpool have only won twice at Old Trafford in the last 15 seasons, and both have been emphatic victories – a 4-1 win in 2009 and a 3-0 win in 2014. In this current decade, Manchester United have dominated this fixture at Old Trafford, winning 6 out of 8 occasions. In last season’s fixture, Marcus Rashford scored two as Manchester United won 2-1.

Manchester United vs Liverpool Predictions and Betting Tips

bet now betting on football Perhaps for the first time in Premier League history, Manchester United go into this match as slight underdogs, being backed at 2/1 to get the victory, with Liverpool at 5/4. A draw for the sides is priced at 5/2. It must be noted that Manchester United haven’t won their two most recent home matches, but I believe that they can get a result here. I think we’ll be in store for an entertaining game, finishing 2-2 (12/1).

For goal scorers, Mohammed Salah has yet to score against Manchester United, but he is at 7/5 to score at any time which shouldn’t be ignored. For the hosts, the one player who will definitely start in an attacking position, Marcus Rashford, is at 15/8 to score at any time, but it could be a game that Alexis Sanchez is the star, and he is at 23/10 to score at any time.

 History shows that both teams usually score in this fixture at Old Trafford, so that is at 4/6, but to boost your odds, back there to be more than 3.5 goals priced at 7/4. Finally, I believe Manchester United will lead at half time, only for Liverpool to come back in the second half and show their character, so a half-time/full-time bet of Manchester United/Draw would be my tip, priced at a generous 14/1.
