Tip Reasoning

  • Over 2.5 goals has landed in each of Liverpool’s last nine matches.
  • The last two meetings between these sides have produced 11 goals.
  • Mohamed Salah has scored in his last nine appearances for Liverpool.

Defensive problems mar midweek win

Both Manchester United and Liverpool were on the right side of 3-2 thrillers in the Champions League in midweek and there’s every reason to suggest we could be in for another cracker of a match at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Manchester United’s second-half performance against Atalanta showed just how dangerous their attackers can be but their problems at the other end of the pitch are clear for all to see. They have conceded six goals in their last two games and have kept just one clean sheet in all competitions this season.

That certainly isn’t good news for the under-pressure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who faces the prospect of sending his team out against one of the best attacking sides in the world right now.

Sensational Salah leads the way for Liverpool

Following their own 3-2 win over Atletico Madrid in midweek, Liverpool have now scored an incredible 36 goals in their 12 competitive games this season and they have scored at least three goals in each of their last nine.

It will come as no surprise that Mohamed Salah has been responsible for his fair share of them. Arguably the best player in the world right now, Liverpool’s talisman has scored 12 goals in 11 outings this season and has found the net in each of his last nine appearances, making him the obvious pick for our anytime goalscorer prediction.

Goals on the agenda at Old Trafford

I simply can’t ignore the potential for goals on Sunday afternoon. The last two meetings between these old rivals have produced 11 goals and both of these sides look vulnerable at the back right now.

Each of Liverpool’s last nine games have gone over the 2.5 goal line and they have conceded eight times in their last five matches, while Manchester United have seen at least three goals in six of their last nine matches and haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of those games.

A Liverpool win holds some appeal, too. Jurgen Klopp’s side are unbeaten in all competitions this season and have won nine of their 12 matches, including six of their seven trips away. Manchester United have lost two of their last three home league games and a repeat of Liverpool’s 3-2 win in midweek offers value.

Manchester United predicted lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Matic, McTominay; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo

Liverpool predicted lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mane

  • 12 of Manchester United’s last 15 Premier League home games have ended with both sides scoring
  • There have been over 2.5 goals in eight of Liverpool’s last nine Premier League games on the road
