Man Utd vs Liverpool: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
Arguably the biggest Premier League grudge match takes place at Old Trafford as Manchester United host Liverpool in an epic clash that will have huge ramifications at the top of the table.
Few games in world football quite get the juices flowing as a contest between Manchester United and Liverpool.
Over the years we have seen thrills and spills, tantrums and fallouts all in the most epic of Premier League duels. The best betting sites in the country will be salivating at the prospect of this one especially with so much at stake.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær has finally sampled his first taste of defeat whilst in charge of the Red Devils after an 11-game unbeaten start which may prove to be more of an aid rather than a hinderance as now that specific pressure is off.
Liverpool come into the game unbeaten in the league since the beginning of the year when a loss to title rivals Manchester City put a dent in their charge but at least they head to the red half of Manchester full of confidence.
After all, Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over United at Anfield in the middle of December ended the tenure of Jose Mourinho so at least some of the Red Devils may be thankful to Jurgen Klopp’s men.
However, back to this game and one suggests Liverpool would be happy to leave Old Trafford with a point as their opponents are undoubtedly reinvigorated under Solskjær’s stewardship.
Four draws in their last six meetings suggests that is the way to go with both putting on a show in front of goal in a 2-2 draw.
- The draw and both teams to score
Only Southampton have recorded more draws at home this season than United’s four whilst both sides have averaged over two goals per game this season, making the this the way to go with popular sportsbooks for the best match result value.
- The draw at half time
A great bet for an early pay out as four of Liverpool’s last five Premier League games have been a draw at the break, just as it was when these two met back in December.
