Liverpool vs Manchester United: Preview and Predictions

Liverpool vs Manchester United
English Premier League, Season 2017/18
Date: Saturday, 13th October 2017
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool).

Both Liverpool and Manchester United have points to prove when they lock horns at the Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

Despite showing some brilliance of their talents here and there, Jurgen Klopp’s Red have failed to pick up results on a consistent basis. It all started with the 5-0 humbling defeat at Manchester City on matchday 4, which is their only defeat so far.

But, the Reds dropped easy points against the likes of Burnley and Newcastle after being held to draws. Yet, the lone win during the period was no way convincing as the match saw a 3-2 score line against a Leicester staying close to the relegation zone.

The dropped points opened a 7-point gap in the title race against the two Manchester clubs.

Manchester United are yet to face a quality team in the league this season. But, they can be pleased to have made full use of the easy fixtures tossed to them at the start of the season. Six wins and a draw from seven games with a massive 21 goals scored had already set a fine platform for the team in the quest to regain the Premier League title.

Liverpool vs Manchester United: Head-to-head

The two Premier League meetings of last season saw stalemates – 0-0 at Anfield and 1-1 at the Old Trafford.

The last three meetings between them in all competitions are also draws.

Liverpool can boast of a four-match unbeaten run against Man United with a win going their way.

Liverpool’s home record against Manchester United in recent seasons had weakened. The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last three Premier League matches at Anfield with 2 wins and 1 draw.

Liverpool vs Manchester United: Prediction

This is a chance for Liverpool to prove that they are title contenders. The absence of Sadio Mane is a bitter blow to the Reds, but they have enough replacements to complement for the pacey forward.

United welcome Romelu Lukaku back from injury and they could field the strongest possible eleven barring the talented Paul Pogba. So, the team have plenty of skillful feet in going forward. But, it will be interesting to see how their untested defense cope with the likes of Salah and Firminho.

  • Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 Liverpool win for 11.00 odds.
