Liverpool plays Manchester United in this weekend’s Premiership highlight. Liverpool will be looking to this fixture to end United’s unbeaten run in the first quarter of the Premiership season.
Every one of the last ten matches between Liverpool and Man United have produced a result, with United taking six wins, while four matches have gone the way of Liverpool.
United’s last trip to Anfield ended in defeat, as the Reds put a dent in United’s championship winning season with a 3-1 victory.
Liverpool seem to have recovered from a wobble in form, and bounced back to their best with three wins following on two consecutive losses. The most recent of these wins was a 2-1 away victory over Everton in the Merseyside derby a fortnight ago.
Liverpool has scored two goals in all three of its last three matches, recovering from two games where it was held scoreless. Defence still has some questions to answer with 7 goals conceded in five matches.
Manchester United comes into this critical fixture with three wins and two draws from its past five matches. The Red Devils hit a flat patch a couple of weeks ago – including a home draw against Basel in the Champions League – but came back from its two draws with a victory over Norwich City.
Goals have not been in short supply for United, with 12 scored in five matches. Defence is below par for the club, with 5 goals conceded in five games.
Liverpool’s turned halting the United juggernaut into something of an art form, and will be looking to take United’s scalp on Saturday.
However, United has been in sublime form for most of the season and certainly won’t be caught napping at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
Draws between these two sides are rare, but there’s a sense that one may be produced on the weekend. With this in mind, our Liverpool vs Manchester United betting tip is to take a lay bet on the home side at Betfair to score of the draw or the United win.
