Manchester Utd vs Liverpool Prediction & Betting tips
Before the Carabao Cup final between Chelsea and Manchester City starts in England, there is still a nice starter on the program: Manchester United plays Old Trafford against Liverpool on Sunday-afternoon. The interests of both teams are huge!
Manchester United is in fourth place in the Premier League and still wants to be there after this round of play. Then there will have to be three points if Liverpool comes to visit in the Theater of Dreams. This has everything to do with the fact that Arsenal plays with Manchester United at the same time and that The Gunners have a relatively easy opponent with Southampton. Especially when you compare it with Manchester United’s opponent. The duel with Liverpool is of course a duel with a lot of history for Manchester United. The last few seasons, however, the roles have been reversed: Liverpool is thé taste maker in the Premier League while the game of Manchester United often was not to be peeped over the past few months.
Under Ole Gunnar Solskjær, Manchester United has in any case started to play better since his appointment. That was the past duels often in conjunction with profit parties. Not all duels were won, however, and also the Champions League game with Paris Saint-Germain. At Old Trafford, The Red Devils lost 0-2 and last Monday, Manchester United had the chance to recover when the FA Cup match at Chelsea had to be played. Man United succeeded, as at Stamford Bridge The Mancunians won 0-2 by goals from Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba. For Manchester United, this weekend a match with Liverpool and that is the third heavy game in a row for The Red Devils.
Like Manchester United, Liverpool is of course also active in the Champions League. The losing finalist of last year is linked to Bayern Munich in the knockout phase and the back duel was scheduled for this week. On Tuesday evening Der Rekordmeister came to visit Liverpool and both superpowers kept each other in balance at Anfield: 0-0. Despite not being scored during the game, the spectators sat ninety minutes on the edge of their seats. Bayern Munich was visibly satisfied with the goalless draw at Anfield, while Liverpool from Jürgen Klopp had actually hoped for more. On the other hand, The Reds did not have to cash out any goals and that can sometimes make the difference if the return is in the middle of March.
Until then, Liverpool will only play matches in the Premier League and also in that competition The Reds can not renounce. In that respect, it may be an advantage that Liverpool is no longer active in both English Cup competitions. Competitor Manchester City is that and the advantage Liverpool has is that The Reds sometimes only have to play two games a week. This coming week is a different story, because Wednesday night Watford will visit Liverpool and next week Sunday the Merseyside Derby will be on the program for The Reds. It is a matter for Liverpool to not lose any points in the Premier League in the next three games. Liverpool is now in line with Manchester City in terms of points, which has a better goal difference. The Reds, however, have played a game less and if Liverpool does not lose at Old Trafford then the Klopp team is again the official leader of the Premier League.
