Match odds

Manchester United are at a very attractive price to win this match, but the Red Devils are far off from challenging against the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City at this moment. Mourinho’s team have fallen off the pace and the Portuguese has also looked tired this season. His usually successful ways of getting the best out of his players and protecting them from criticism have not worked. Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp continues to build Liverpool from strength to strength. Even though the Reds have not been at their best this season, they have been able to grind out results unlike in the last few decades. Our preview would be a win for Liverpool.

Liverpool vs Manchester United draw odds: 4.00

Manchester United win odds: 6.00

Correct Score odds

Liverpool’s offensive line-up will be given a stern defensive test by United, who may sit back in great numbers. Traditionally, this match has been low on goals with even former boss Sir Alex Ferguson resorting to defensive tactics. Our correct score prediction expects a 2-0 win for Liverpool.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

This match is expected to witness a tight and defensive game which has both teams on their edge. In terms of pure attacking quality, this may not be the match to experience. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Mohamed Salah is unlikely to be given space to operate behind the defence, but he remains as Liverpool’s best-attacking talent with a string of goals of late. His hat-trick against Bournemouth takes him to 10 league goals for the campaign. Our first goalscorer prediction is to back Mohamed Salah.
