Free tips Premier League: Manchester United v Liverpool predictions (4pm, Sunday)
Manchester United v Liverpool Betting Preview
Old Trafford hosts a titanic tussle between two giants of the North West as in-form Manchester United will hope to continue their recent resurgence as they take on fierce rivals Liverpool.
This fixture has a strong argument to be the ‘biggest’ in the country due to the fan bases of the respective clubs, the rich history of both clubs and the mutual disdain they share for each other, deep-rooted in the wider culture of the area.
The games are often closely-fought and highly charged – Liverpool have failed to win any of the last five league clashes, but they did bring a four-game losing streak to a halt when the sides drew 0-0 at Anfield back in October, while Jurgen Klopp’s men triumphed in last season’s Europa League battle.
United have won their last six league games on the spin to reduce the gap between the two clubs from ten points to five, if they can triumph on Sunday it really would represent a remarkable turnaround.

Manchester United v Liverpool Anytime Scorer Odds
- Zlatan Ibrahimovic 5/4 – 32Red – The Swede may now be 35 years old but he is like a fine wine, scoring 18 goals in 28 appearances for his new club including 12 in his last 12 games. A man for the big occasion and a goal always is probable more than possible.
- Henrikh Mkhitaryan 3/1 – 32Red – Jose Mourinho has often rotated the Red Devils attack but the Armenian is strong favourite to start this game and recently scored spectacular goals against Sunderland and more crucially, Tottenham. There is strong value in the odds.
- Daniel Sturridge 12/5 – various – limped off in Liverpool’s last league fixture at Sunderland, but did find the net for his first league goal of the season.
- Philippe Coutinho 7/2 – Winner, 188Bet – set to return to action after a month-long lay-off, can he make a spectacular impact?
Manchester United v Liverpool Betting Tips
Zlatan Ibrahimovic 5/4 – 32Red – Scored in recent fixtures against Crystal Palace, West Brom, Sunderland and West Ham while having a goal incorrectly ruled out in the game against Middlesbrough – can exploit an often-indecisive Liverpool defence.
Both Teams to Score No 63/50 – MarathonBet – these games are often cagey and low-scoring, as it was at Anfield in October. United will hope to control the game but have conceded only three goals in their last eight matches.
Manchester United v Liverpool Prediction
United are favourites to continue their winning run at the expense of Liverpool, who recently have looked leggy and who’s lack of squad depth is starting to show.
