Manchester United vs Liverpool Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Manchester United produced an incredible comeback to get a 3-2 win over Crystal Palace on Monday night. The Red Devils went down to goals from Andros Townsend and Patrick van Aanholt. Chris Smalling and Romelu Lukaku were able to come up with goals in the space of 21 second-half minutes to put Manchester United on level terms. Nemanja Matic’s volley from long range sealed a memorable win for United. Liverpool continued in their relentless pursuit of United after a 2-0 win over Newcastle at Anfield. Mohamed Salah required only 40 minutes in order to open the scoring up with his 31st goal of the campaign. A second-half goal from Sadio Mane completed the evening’s work for Jurgen Klopp’s men. Liverpool also moved into the Champions League quarter-finals after a 5-0 aggregate win over FC Porto.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The iconic rivalry once again kicks off with little to separate these two teams in the last four matches. Since Liverpool’s win over United back in March 2016, all of the four meetings have ended in draws. Liverpool and United are evenly matched coming into this fixture. Jose Mourinho has a tendency to approach big matches in a defensive manner, and I expect this approach to cause a fifth consecutive draw between these two teams.

Earlier in the campaign, defensive issues plagued Liverpool but they seem to have gone away. However, United appear more than capable of scoring with Romelu Lukaku in good form. Liverpool have also scored in five out of their last six away games against United. There is value in backing both teams to score.

Manchester United Preview

The Red Devils will take a lot of motivation from the win over Crystal Palace, as such comeback victories are rare in a campaign. Selhurst Park is a difficult place to visit, but United came back from a 2-0 deficit to win the match. The victory provides a better look to United’s recent form. It is vital for the club to keep up momentum, as they have several key matches coming up in the next few weeks. Old Trafford will stage four out of the next five games for United. Romelu Lukaku is the top scorer at United with 14 goals.

Manchester United Team News

Jose Mourinho will be without Anthony Martial, Ander Herrera (hamstring), Daley Blind (ankle), Phil Jones (knock), and Marouane Fellaini (ligament) due to injuries.

Liverpool Preview

The Liverpool juggernaut continues to roll and pick up a regular stream of victories. Surprisingly, Klopp appears to have found a great balance between attack and defence. Earlier in the campaign, Liverpool were criticised for poor defensive displays. Now, the club has managed four clean sheets in five games across all competitions – and this even includes some tough fixtures. Despite a strong set of results, Liverpool have been unable to pull away from Tottenham while Manchester United also remain just out of reach. Mohamed Salah is now level with Harry Kane in the Premier League Golden Boot race after managing 24 goals.

Rhian Brewster (ankle) is the only player on the sidelines for manager Jurgen Klopp.
