Manchester United vs Liverpool Prediction & Betting tips
In round 30 of the Premier League there is kicked off with the North-West Derby, or the match between the eternal rivals Manchester United and Liverpool. A championship is not on Saturday afternoon at Old Trafford, but the second place in the Premier League and both teams will finish this season behind leader Manchester City.
Manchester United :
With twenty championships, Manchester United is still the biggest club in England, but this season The Red Devils will have to leave the title to fellow citysman Manchester City. José Mourinho’s team does take the place behind Manchester City, but the backlog of sixteen points on The Citizens is logically unbridgeable. Still, there is still plenty at stake for Manchester United this season in the Premier League, as The Red Devils want to finish over Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. Only three of the four teams behind list leader Manchester City can qualify for the Champions League through the league and on Saturday the Red Devils will have to increase the lead on pursuer Liverpool.
Last Monday night Manchester United last in action in the Premier League. The Red Devils went to visit Crystal Palace and after a fifty minute gap, they faced a 2-0 deficit at Selhurst Park. After Crystal Palace doubled the score just after half-time, it suddenly went better with Mourinho’s team and after three-quarters of the match there was a 2-2 score on the scoreboard. Both teams then had chances to win the three points and Manchester United finally managed to win the match by a goal in the injury time of Nemanja Matić.
The victory of Manchester United at Crystal Palace was not right, but everyone has become accustomed to the fact that teams from Mourinho usually do not play too well but get points. Just like a week earlier against Sevilla (0-0) and Chelsea (2-1 win) The Red Devils also did not play well against Crystal Palace, but a coach is finally settled on this. Earlier this season, Manchester United played scorelessly equal on a visit to Liverpool and then Mourinho was accused that there was too little danger from his team, but the expectation is that The Red Devils will not take the lead in this weekend too. Finally, a draw against Liverpool means for Mourinho that the team of Jürgen Klopp has not run into Manchester United and a point-division this weekend will feel like a victory for Mourinho.
Liverpool after Manchester United most often won the Premier League (and its predecessor) in England. The Reds have already won the league title eighteen times, but the last time that happened was in the 1989/90 season. This season there is no longer a Premier League title for Manchester United, as Liverpool’s deficit at Manchester City is no less than eighteen points. Nevertheless, The Reds after Manchester City play the best football of Great Britain and it is to blame the team of Jürgen Klopp that they have missed so many points this season against little ones, because Liverpool did have the potential to fight a lot longer to the championship.
The Premier League, the FA Cup and the League Cup, they can write at Liverpool this season, but The Reds can still win the Champions League. The chance that the Klopp team will win the Champions League is of course nil, but those who do not dare to win will be the saying. Liverpool did not win on Tuesday-evening when FC Porto came to visit Anfield, but that was not necessary either. The Reds were already sure of the next round of the Champions League after the first leg, because in Portugal 0-5 was won by Liverpool and therefore a scoreless tie this week was enough to reach the next round.
Klopp decided to give FC Porto a number of players rest in view of the squatter this weekend against Manchester United. Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and star player Mohamed Salah did not have to start all four in the Champions League and the first three did not play FC Porto at all, but the quartet will be back in the Theater of Dreams. expect the basis. Jordan Henderson has a slight injury against FC Porto and is, together with the flu-like Georginio Wijnaldum, a doubt for Saturday’s game. Rightback Nathaniel Clyne has recently played a role in the Liverpool team, but the away match against Mancehster United is too early for the Englishman.
