Manchester UTD v Liverpool Betting PreviewMan UTD have suffered humiliating losses to Brighton (2-1) and Brentford (4-0) in the first two matches of the Ten Hag's era. Their back-to-back defeats left them bottom of the Premier League for the first time since 1991-92, alongside West Ham and Everton. The Red Devils are struggling both at the back and up front, with their solitary strike of the season - against Brighton - going down as an own goal. Alarm bells are ringing in Manchester and Erik Ten Hag is now odds-on favorite to be the next manager to be sacked. Considering last season, Man UTD have lost four league games in a row for the first time since 1979 and lost seven consecutive away matches for the first time since 1936.
Liverpool have also made a stumbling start to the season, recording frustrating draws against Fulham (2-2) and Crystal Palace (1-1). Despite winning the Community Shield in their season's curtain raiser, the Reds will have to find last season's level relatively quickly if they are to stay in touch with Man City in terms of the Premier League table. Anway, considering how Man UTD Klopp’s side should extend their unbeaten Premier League run to 22 games.
As to direct encounters, Manchester United haven’t won in eight Premier League contests against Liverpool. The Reds have recorded three comprehensive victories on the bounce against United (4-0, 5-0, 4-2)

Man UTD (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Malacia; Martinez, Eriksen; Sancho, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo
The hosts have confirmed the signing of Real Madrid’s Casemiro but the Brazilian will not be available on Monday night. Victor Lindelof and Facundo Pellistri are still out but Anthony Martial, whowas in impressive form in pre-season, is back in training and could come into contention. Anyway, Ten Hag is expected to resist the temptation to make wholesale changes although Raphael Varane and Tyrell Malacia could replace Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire. Cristiano Ronaldo may have a stay of execution up top while Lisandro Martinez is likely to be moved in midfield.
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Elliott, Fabinho, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Diaz
Darwin Nunez will be out after receiving a three-match ban for inexplicably head-butting Crystal Palace’s Joachim Andersen. Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Caoimhin Kelleher, Ibrahima Konate and Curtis Jones are sidelined. As a result, Roberto Firmino will complete the front trio alongside Luis Diaz and Mo Salah while James Milner and Harvey Elliott are in contention for a starting berth in the middle of the park. At the back, Joe Gomez will partner Virgil Van Dijk at the centre.
Our Manchester UTD v Liverpool Predictions
Liverpool are facing a raft of injuries and have certainly not been at their best in the opening two fixtures but they have the potential to exploit United's defensive frailties and lack of balance. A 3-1 Liverpool win is our choice. The Both Teams To Score bet is an appealing bet too, since Liverpool haven’t kept a clean sheet in six matches. As to goalscorers, Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick at Old Trafford in the 5-0 win last season and we expect the Egyptian to find the back of the net.
