Reason For Liverpool vs Manchester United Predictions

  • 73% of Manchester United’s away games in the Premier League this season have seen fewer than three goals scored.
  • Liverpool have won to nil in each of their last six Premier League matches.
  • Manchester United have lost five away games in the league this season, failing to score in all five of them and losing 2-0 on three occasions.

Champions elect Liverpool look for revenge against rivals

Liverpool produced yet another assured and professional display last weekend with a well-deserved 1-0 win at Tottenham and, at the moment, they look almost unstoppable as they roar towards their first ever Premier League title.

They have dropped just two points this season, which actually came at Old Trafford against Manchester United. However, each of their other 20 top-flight matches have ended in victory and they hold an astounding 14-point lead in the title race.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have won 18 Premier League matches on the bounce at Anfield and haven’t lost a league game there since April 2017. It’s safe to say the home fans will be confident as they head into one of the fiercest derbies in English football.

Lack of cutting edge plagues Man Utd’s away record

Of course, Manchester United can take confidence from the fact  they are the only team to have taken points from Liverpool this season. But now they’re visiting Anfield, it’s a completely different story.

The Red Devils have been frustrating to say the least this season, but their away form does at least show some level of consistency. Unfortunately for the visitors, it’s not the good type of consistency – they have won just three of their 11 Premier League away days and have lost five times.

Each of these defeats has seen them fail to find the net and as a result we’ve seen plenty of low-scoring games involving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men. In fact, just three of their 11 away games have seen three or more goals scored.

Liverpool rediscover defensive stability

Manchester United’s struggles to find the net could continue on Sunday. Liverpool, whose imperious defence was somewhat underwhelming earlier in the season, have rediscovered their knack for shutting the opponents out. They have kept a clean sheet in each of their last six league games, averaging 2.16 goals per game themselves in this period.

This, combined with Manchester United’s low-scoring form away from home, makes backing Under 2.5 Goals look a good choice. Of course, we’re also expecting a Liverpool win on Sunday. They have won 2-0 in two of their last three home games in the Premier League and face a Manchester United side that have lost 2-0 on three occasions away from home this term, so that’s the correct score prediction we’re going for.
