The huge game in the Premier League this weekend will see the two most decorated teams in English football go head to head. Man United come into the fixture in the better form, and they will be looking to keep alive their unlikely hopes of a quadruple.
Meanwhile, it is a huge fixture for Liverpool as they look to back up their win over Wolves in midweek to maintain their challenge for a top-four finish. It will be a very interesting showdown between the two rivals, and our football tips for the major fixture can be found here.
Tip: Liverpool To Win
The betting markets for the match result will be extremely tight for this fixture, but we see Liverpool coming out on top against the Red Devils. Liverpool’s home record against United is extremely strong, as they have gone six without defeat at Anfield, with United’s last win at Anfield coming back in January 2016. Since then, the Reds have picked up three draws and three wins.
Jurgen Klopp will be delighted to get some of his stars back for this fixture, with Luis Diaz in contention to make his long-awaited return to action. That right-hand side of the Liverpool attack could be crucial, with the key clash between Mohamed Salah and the deputising Tyrone Malacia likely to be pivotal. Luke Shaw’s potential absence is a big blow for United, as few left backs have been as impressive in the Premier League this term.
It’s hard to knock United’s recent form, as they lost just once in eleven matches since the World Cup, and have landed 13 wins from 17 games across all competitions. However, the fact that this is United’s 18th game in just over 60 days is a concern. The Red Devils will be fatigued, and another busy week awaits with a home game against Real Betis on Thursday.
United looked leggy in the opening half against West Ham in midweek, and were also far from their best at the EFL Cup final despite seeing off Newcastle United. The games do appear to be catching up to Erik ten Hag’s side, and with the emphasis on cup competitions, I would see their league form suffering.
Liverpool is the favoured option in the match odds market with many of the leading sportsbooks. Paddy Power goes 7/5 for the hosts to claim victory, while Bet365 offers the same price.
