Manchester United v Liverpool Preview, Betting Tips And Enhanced Odds

Betting preview, tips and enhanced odds for the big Premier League game of the weekend between Manchester United and Liverpool.

Form Labs

Much has changed at Manchester United since they were thrashed 3-1 by Liverpool in mid-December! In fact, it was this result that brought about the changes with Mourinho getting the boot and Solsjaer coming in, the Norwegian subsequently guiding them to just the one loss in his first 13-games. There might still be 14-points separating the two teams, however this United team will believe they can narrow that gap by a further three at Old Trafford, come the final whistle on Sunday. For Liverpool this is a must win game if they want to keep the heat on Manchester City and not let their title challenge fade. Form Labs give their verdict ahead of the clash with their betting preview and tips and don’t forget we have plenty of value with our selection of enhanced odds available in our FanBoosts section.

Man United in Top Domestic Form

The fixtures are coming thick and fast for both teams now. United’s unbeaten start under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ended against PSG in their last outing at Old Trafford, but they can still cling to a great domestic record with the Norwegian at the helm (W11-D1) following their superb performance on Monday night.

However, although an overdue victory at Stamford Bridge maintained the feel-good factor, Chelsea are seemingly a club in crisis while Liverpool should provide a much sterner test – especially with a manager that’s willing to make changes to plan A if it goes awry.

Liverpool Nerves Starting To Show?

Jurgen Klopp and his charges will be desperate to make use of their game in hand to re-establish a three-point lead over Man City, as the Citizens turn their own attention to the League Cup final instead.

However, the Reds have shown signs of nervousness recently with three tense stalemates across their last four in all competitions, while their previous outing saw them make life hard for themselves in a 4-3 triumph over regular bogey team Crystal Palace.

Liverpool are only W3-D3-L2 from their last eight in all competitions and with the victories against bottom-half outfits Brighton, Palace and Bournemouth, they’ll need to pick themselves up quickly after failing to breach Bayern’s defence at Anfield on Tuesday.

Although Liverpool kept a clean sheet midweek in the absence of suspended key man Virgil van Dijk, the Bavarians felt threatened enough to curb their usual attacking instincts and Klopp’s side can only boast two shut outs in seven league outings.

The German has been forced to frequently chop and change his line-up depending on availability, though he’ll be glad that Trent Alexander-Arnold has made a successful comeback from injury after the right-back slot has proved problematic in recent outings.

United Will Look To Pogba And Rashford

There were fears United would miss in-form duo Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard following groin and hamstring problems respectively, though they demonstrated their attacking prowess without them against Chelsea, with Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford running the show.

However, the former will find a more athletic challenge from Liverpool’s midfielders than provided by Jorginho, while the latter won’t be able to trouble Alexander-Arnold with pace as he could with Cezar Azpilicueta on the counter.

United should fancy their chances of getting onto the scoresheet at home given they have netted in each of their six games domestically under their new manger, but they may have to settle for the single strike with van Dijk back in the starting XI.

Indeed, Liverpool have conceded more than once in just two of 26 league matches the Dutch captain has started this season.

The visitors might be a reasonable W3-D3-L1 against fellow ‘Big Six’ sides this term for a title-chasing outfit, but aside from a goalless stalemate with Man City at Anfield, each of these games saw both sides find the net and United certainly have the weapons to hurt them.

However, Pep Guardiola’s reigning champions were the only one of these to breach Liverpool’s backline more than once in a single game, while United have only scored more than once against them on a solitary occasion in their last eight head-to-head meetings in all competitions since the start of 2016.

Manchester United v Liverpool Betting Tips

Encounters between these two have been close affairs in recent times as they’ve drawn four of the past six meetings across all competitions with a win apiece at home. Liverpool’s victory in the reverse fixture back in December spelled the end for Jose Mourinho, but that was their first triumph over the Red Devils in nine attempts and the mood at Old Trafford is completely different these days.

Given all four meetings between these two sides at Old Trafford since 2015/16 have seen both teams score, with two finishing 1-1, the correct score has a high appeal to it as well.

Draw At 3.45

1-1 Correct Score At 6.30
