Manchester United News and Form

It is only the two wins that Manchester United have recorded this season in the top flight. They have managed to collect only one point from their last three played. Their record at Old Trafford this season is W2 D1 L1, with the success there coming against Chelsea and Leicester. Since their 4-0 win over Chelsea in their first fixture of the season, United haven’t managed to score more than one goal in a game.

Both of their home wins were with a clean sheet. In total, United have conceded 3 goals in their four home fixtures played. Their poor return overall leaves them down in the bottom half of the table with only the 9 goals scored in 8 league games. Paul Pogba has already been ruled out of action for this one and they are waiting to see if keeper David de Gea is fit to go.

United have been leading at half time in three of their four home games in this campaign, and have opened the scoring in 5 of 8. But they have conceded 75% of their goals this season in the second half of fixtures. Each of their last five league outings have gone under 2.5 goals. They know that they are under pressure here and are facing the league leaders who have massive winning momentum behind them. Can they pull off an upset?

Manchester United v Liverpool Head to Head

Liverpool took four points against United last season
Untied are on six matches unbeaten streak at home against Liverpool (all competitions)
Each of the last five meetings in all competitions have gone under 2.5 goals
Liverpool have won the last eight meetings in all competitions

Liverpool News and Form

The Reds have remained perfect for the season, eight wins from eight. They haven’t been at their sharpest, certainly not at the back as they have collected only two clean sheets during this season. Three of their four away wins have been by one goal margin, so that may be a decent trend for punters to size up.

Liverpool have scored at least three goals in all but one of their last five league games, so have had no trouble sticking the ball in the back of the net. They are averaging 2.5 goals per game this season, with 75% of their road games going over 2.5 goals. A win in this one would be Liverpool’s 18th straight Premier League success, pulling them level with Manchester City’s record.

Liverpool have scored at least two goals in 16 of their last 17 Premier League games and have been winning at both half time and full time in 10 of their last 11. Liverpool are set to get keeper Alisson back and he could come back into the starting line up. There remains a doubt over Mo Salah who was on the end of a horrid tackle in their win over Leicester just before the international break.

Who will win – Manchetser United v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool have not been playing all that well recently, but still, have come up with those moments of match-winning magic. United are still not at full strength and given their lack of attacking threat, the away win looks solid. It may only be by the one-goal margin though as that has been the trend with Liverpool this season.
