Liverpool v Manchester UTD Betting Preview
Liverpool failed to move above league leaders Manchester City as the two sides played out a pulsating 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium eight days ago. Prior to that, the Merseysiders recorded 10 consecutive victories in the top-flight. Anyway, the Reds booked their ticket for the FA Cup final beating the Cityzens 3-2 at Wembley over the weekend, keeping their hopes of a historic quadruple alive. Jurgen Klopp's men are scoring for fun - 11 goals in the last four outings - but they have conceded 8 times in the process.
Man UTD's bid for a Premier League top-four finish appeared to evaporate following a disappointing 1-0 defeat at Everton less than a fortnight ago. However, the Red Devils beat Norwich 3-2 in a home game on Saturday, whilst their rivals were dropping points. Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick and helped his team leapfrogging Arsenal into fifth place in the Premier League table. The victory over the rock bottom Canaries was just a second win from eight in all competitions during an underwhelming spell for Ralf Rangnick's men.
The last time these teams met was for a Premier League match, last October, Jurgen Klopp's men hammered Man UTD 5-0, with Mohamed Salah scoring a brilliant hat-trick. The Red Devils have not defeated Liverpool in the Premier League since March 2018 when they won 2-1, recording three draws and four defeats since. Furthermore, in their last five trips at Anfield, Manchester UTD has drawn two and lost three games, managing to score a solitary goal.
Team News & Probable Line-Ups
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, L. Diaz, Mane
Jurgen Klopp is expected to be working with a fully-fit squad once again but the front trio should remain unchanged with Luis Diaz favourite over Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota, who was not 100% fit against Man City few days ago. Elsewhere, Joel Matip could take the place of Ibrahima Konate as centre back while Naby Keita could make room to Jordan Henderson in the middle of the park. Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott provide further options in midfield.
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Matic, Pogba; Rashford, Fernandes, Sancho; Ronaldo
Manchester UTD have several players currently nursing their injuries - Fred, Scot McTominay, Edinson Cavani and Luke Shaw. They will surely miss this clash while Raphael Varane remains a major doubt. The Frenchman should be replaced by Victor Lindelof, while Alex Telles is expected to start as left back. Aaron Wan-Bissaka should get the nod over Diogo Dalot on the other flank. Up front, Bruno Fernandes will play as number ten behind Cristiano Ronaldo, while Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford will be the offensive wingers.
Our Liverpool v Manchester UTD Predictions
Liverpool are playing the most brilliant football in the world while Manchester UTD is struggling in terms of consistency and continuity. Jurgen Klopp's men have struck twice or more in a league-high 25 of 31 fixtures. Having seen Norwich expose the Red Devils' defensive frailties with relative ease, we expect the Merseysiders to win by scoring more than two goals.
