Manchester United vs Liverpool betting tips and predictions

Man United Liverpool EPL betting tips

Jurgen Klopp will be confident of retaining his side’s perfect start in the English Premier League when Liverpool make the trip to Old Trafford this weekend.

The Reds will be searching for their ninth Premier League win on the bounce when the biggest rivalry in English football is rekindled on Saturday afternoon.


Liverpool looked set to drop points in the league for the first time this season when they faced a stern test from Leicester City in their last outing, but the European champions dug deep to salvage a dramatic late win over the Foxes.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers had tamed his former side for the most part, up until the 40th minute when Sadio Mane put the hosts ahead with his 50th goal in the English top-flight.

The spoils seemed destined to be shared after James Maddison delivered a sharp finish 10 minutes before the final whistle, only for James Milner to secure the winner from the spot in stoppage time after Mane was brought down in the area by Marc Albrighton.

The victory took the league leaders to 24 points, further stretching their lead over second-placed Manchester City to eight points.

Things seems to be going from bad to worse for Manchester United, as Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s charges suffered a disheartening 1-0 defeat away to Newcastle United right before the most recent international break.

The defeat was inflicted by 19-year-old midfielder Matty Longstaff, who capped his debut with a brilliant low strike from outside the box 18 minutes from stoppage time.

United have only amassed two wins from their first eight league games of the campaign, which sees them 12th on the EPL table with nine points – a staggering 15 points adrift of the leaders.

Solskjaer will have to deal with several injury woes ahead of Liverpool’s visit.

David De Gea sustained what looked like a groin strain on Tuesday night during Spain’s European Championship qualifier with Sweden, while Paul Pogba — who has been recuperating in Dubai — has been ruled out of the tie due to a recurring ankle problem.

Jesse Lingard is similarly sidelined with injury, although Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have a chance of staging an appearance in the encounter.

Whereas United are a few men short, Klopp could welcome back a number of key players this weekend.

Goalkeeper Alisson is on track to make his first start since injuring his calf during the opening game of the season, while Joel Matip, Mo Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri are well in line to pass a late fitness test.

Last season’s EPL Golden Boot winner Sadio Mane has had a decent run of form this campaign, with five of his six goals coming in the Premier League.

Although Liverpool have a rich chest of attacking ammo, the 27-year-old Senegalese forward — who has scored twice in the last two games — has the highest likelihood of scoring against United.

Man United vs Liverpool betting predictions

It’s a known fact that form counts for nothing when it comes to football derbies.

However, Manchester United have only won two of their first eight Premier League games this season – a run that isn’t acceptable in any way, shape, or form given the club’s history.

Liverpool, in stark contrast, have had a clean sweep of victories in their first eight EPL games and should secure another win this weekend despite some measure of resistance from the hosts.
