Manchester United vs Liverpool Stats

  • Man Utd are undefeated in 9 of their last 10 home matches against Liverpool in all competitions.
  • Manchester United have lost just 5 of their 35 league games this season.

Betting Tip: Manchester United +0.25 asian handicap

This game was due to take place over a week ago but due to fans breaking into the ground to protest about the ownership at the club, it was postponed. It’s far from ideal for Man United who had to play just a couple of days ago against Leicester, a game where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer changed his team up dramatically and ultimately to their detriment as they fell to a deserved 2-1 loss to Leicester.

It does mean the likes of Edison Cavani, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw will come back into the team as they play their old rivals at Old Trafford. I’m surprised this isn’t a closer betting heat, Liverpool of course have more to play for with a Champions League place at stake but United are a tough nut to crack when at full strength. There’s hardly anything between the two sides in terms of performance data either.

Liverpool continue to have problems at centre half, now Ozan Kabak is unlikely to feature it could see Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams partnered together again, unless Fabinho slots back into the backline. That leaves them vulnerable to a side that have looked good going forward for the majority of the campaign

We can get United with a +0.25 start on the asian handicap at an attractive 16/19, here we would make money if the hosts avoided defeat. I’d make this a scratch game off the asian handicap.
