- 4:30pm: Manchester UTD v Liverpool
Manchester UTD v Liverpool Betting Preview
Manchester UTD have picked up just one point from the last nine available in the league, also losing their imperious 29-game unbeaten run away from home in defeat to Leicester (4-2) last time out. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have dropped to sixth in the table amid their poor run of form. The Red Devils conceded two goals in a sloppy first half against Atalanta in midweek's Champions Lague actions but managed to win the match 3-2 courtesy of a Cristiano Ronaldo's late header.
Liverpool find themselves one point adrift of leaders Chelsea. They head into this fixture in rampant form, having followed up their 5-0 demolition of Watford with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano in Champions League. The Reds have extended their unbeaten run to 21 matches in all competitions, their longest sequence without defeat since a run of 24 from January to May 1989.

Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes, Pogba; Ronaldo
Raphael Varane will miss the visit of Liverpool while there are doubts surrounding Marcus Rashford (dead leg), Fred (hamstring), Bruno Fernandes (knock) and Anthony Martial (knock) heading into Sunday's showdown. Paul Pogba has often been used in a wider role against Big 6 clubs under Solskjaer but may be needed in the double pivot if Fred misses out, with Nemanja Matic another option in the engine room. Mason Greenwood is likely to start in the offensive midfield trio behind the lone striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Harvey Elliott and Thiago Alcantara remain out but Curtis Jones has returned to full training and will come into contention for this clash. Fabinho was surprisingly named on the bench in midweek but is sure to replace either James Milner or Naby Keita in the XI here. Elsewhere, no changes are expected as Roberto Firmino is expected to get the nod over Diogo Jota in attack. The four man backline will remain unchanged with Joel Matip and Virgil Van dijk at the heart of the back, Trent-Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson as full backs.
Our Manchester UTD v Liverpool Predictions
Liverpool look so dangerous going forward and even when they do concede goals, they look like they can outscore their opposition. Manchester United haven't kept a clean sheet at home since April and it looks most unlikely they are going to snap that trend against the Reds. Tuesday's success over Atletico marked the ninth game in a row that Klopp's side have chalked up at least two goals. The Merseysiders banged in four goals in this fixture last season and it's almost impossible to see the visitors not cashing in on United's defensive deficiencies once again.
