- 5:00 pm: Manchester UTD vs Liverpool
Manchester UTD vs Liverpool Betting PreviewManchester United remained top of the table with a narrow victory at Fulham on Wednesday. They have now lost just one of their last 12 outings since being knocked out of the Champions League. The Red Devils kicked off their FA Cup campaign with a workmanlike 1-0 home win over Watford. The last direct encounter with liverpool came last Sunday and the match ended 0:0 - their third stalemate in four encounters.
Liverpool slumped to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of relegation-threatened Burnley on Thursday night, meaning that they have lost a league game at Anfield for the first time since April 2017. In that period, Liverpool played 68 games. Plus, Jurgen Klopp's men are in the midst of their worst goal drought for almost 20 years. Prior to the Burnley game, the Reds recorded goalless draws against Man UTD and Newcastle, a 1-1 home draw against West Brom and a 1-0 defeat at Southampton. Their only victory in the last 6 outings was a 4-1 FA Cup third round win over a weakened Aston Villa side.

Probable Line-UpsManchester United (4-2-3-1): Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Telles; McTominay, Matic; Rashford, Fernandes, Pogba; Cavani
Manchester United will continue to be without centre-back Phil Jones and Argentine defender Marcos Rojo. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to shuffle his pack a bit, with Alex Telles, Dean Henderson and Nemanja Matic expected to start. Eric Bailly, Edinson Cavani and Scott McTominay are also likely to play from the off. Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood are the other offensive options. The youngster Amad Diallo could make his Manchester United debut in this game, but he will definitely not start.
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Williams, Phillips, Fabinho, Tsimikas; Milner, Thiago, Jones; Salah, Firmino, Minamino
The likes of Naby Keita, Joe Gomez, Diogo Jota and Virgil van Dijk are still ruled out while Joel Matip and Kostas Tsimikas are fully recovered. Mo Salah was initially benched against Burnley and is expected to lead the line alongside Takumi Minamino and Roberto Firmino. At the back, Neco Williams and Nat Phillips are expected to feature from the off. Trent Alexander-Arnold has performed poorly for a number of weeks now and should be given a rest. In the middle of the park Thiago Alcantara should be flanked by Curtis Jones and James Milner.
Our Manchester UTD vs Liverpool PredictionsLiverpool are at their lowest ebb in recent years. It may be another tactical battle for long spells, but we expect the Merseysiders to bounce back and progress through to the fifth round.
