Man Utd v Liverpool Tips & Betting Preview
Manchester United will be desperate to derail Liverpool title push.
This is the biggest game between Manchester United and Liverpool in quite a few years – there’s little doubt about that. Jurgen Klopp’s side will restore their three-point lead at the top of the Premier League should they beat United at Old Trafford, but my word, that’s a very, very big ‘if’.
United fans, players and staff will be absolutely desperate to prevent Liverpool winning the title and will do whatever it takes to ensure the Premier League trophy remains in the hands of their neighbours.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men roared back from their Champions League disappointment by beating Chelsea in the FA Cup on Monday, and you start to wonder: how far can this United side go? Their blistering domestic form – coupled with Liverpool’s slightly sluggish away form of late – really does make this a 50:50 match.
If Liverpool performs as they did against West Ham or Leicester, they’ll return to Merseyside empty-handed; if they perform to their highest capacity, however, they’d be a fair bet to end Solskjær’s unbeaten domestic run. I can’t wait for this.
With the result on an absolute knife-edge, my next tip is a 2pt banker: both teams to score. Both teams have scored in 83% of United’s Old Trafford encounters this season, and while Solskjær has undoubtedly improved them at the back, it’s hard to see this Liverpool attack repelled for the full 90 (and vice versa, of course).
I have a tasty multi longshot to finish off with: Paul Pogba to score, Trent Alexander-Arnold to be carded and over 2.5 goals in the match
Pogba has scored nine goals in Solskjær’s 12 domestic matches in charge, so that’s a fairly self-explanatory one; barring Marcus Rashford, Pogba is United’s biggest goal threat.
Alexander-Arnold has been booked three times this season for Liverpool (their joint-highest recipient in the cards aren’t brandished.
All three parts of this multi are very attainable, which is why $17* looks a good price!
