Man United Team News

United lost 2-1 on Tuesday at home to Leicester but the team on the night was almost unrecognisable from the one who has played all season.  Or the one that will play here.

David de Gea, now very much United’s Number 2 goalkeeper and Mason Greenwood started the game but the rest were youngsters and bit-part players.

It’s perfectly normal that was going to happen because they had games on Sunday, Tuesday and again here on Thursday. So Tuesday was the game that Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer ‘sacrificed’ but they should be back to full strength here.

Likely XI: Henderson, Wan Bissaka, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Pogba, Fernandes, Rashford, Cavani.

Liverpool Team News

Liverpool won last time out, a comfortable 2-0 win over Southampton but this has been far from a good season.

They crashed out of the Champions League early, were eliminated from both domestic cup competitions and are set to finish the season outside the Top 4 in the Premier League, a disastrous result given they won it pretty easily last year.

But no one can win all the time and they will have learnt plenty about themselves with a view to getting back to their best net campaign, still under manager Jurgen Klopp.

Likely XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Kabak, Robertson, Thiago, Wijnaldum, Milner, Jota, Salah, Mane.

Manchester United vs Liverpool Head-to-Head

As two of football’s biggest rivals, these two have played each other a lot over the years, especially since their first match against each other was back in 1894!

Here’s how they’ve fared over the years in all competitions.

  • They’ve played each other 234 times.
  • Man Utd have won 89, drawn 68 and Liverpool have won 77 times.
  • These two played each other twice last season. It was 1-1 in Manchester and a 2-0 win for Liverpool at Anfield. This (2020-21) season, it was a 0-0 draw in Liverpool in the league and a 3-2 win for Man Utd in the FA Cup, played at Old Trafford.

Man Utd vs Liverpool fun statistics

We love our football stats here at BetIndia. Here are some of our favourite ones ahead of this game.

  • Marcus Rashford has been United’s main man in this fixture with four goals and an assist in his last five games against Liverpool.
  • Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has gone to Old Trafford and never won in six attempts, with four draws and two defeats.  It’s his worst record away at any team.
  • Man Utd have only ever lost one PL game played on a Thursday in 13 games. They lost to Middlesbrough on a Thursday back in 2002.
  • The last time Liverpool conceded more than one goal in a Premier League match was back in February, losing 2-0 at home to Everton.
  • Man United have scored in 14 of their last 15 games in all competitions, only missing out against Leeds (0-0) on April 25.

Manchester United vs Liverpool Match Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back the draw @ 3.65 with 10CRIC

United have had a better season than Liverpool overall but this ridiculous amount of fixtures where they will have played three times in five days means United’s players must be exhausted. Yes, most of the regulars didn’t play on Tuesday but they still had to travel to the game.

Right now they look well-balanced with not much to choose between the two sides. Quite frankly, they both look tired and like they want the season to end but they’ll have to lift themselves once again in what’s such a big game.

Draws have been common between these two. Of the last 11 between them in all competitions, seven ended in draws. By the way, the draw is the biggest price of the three on the Manchester United v Liverpool betting odds so that’s yet another reason for the selection.

Liverpool to get the most corners

Recommended Bet: Back Liverpool most corners @ 1.66 with 10CRIC

A really good bet is that Liverpool will get the most corners in this match, despite being away.

Why is it a good bet? Just look at the numbers. In the last 10 matches between them, Liverpool got more corners in nine of them, Man Utd getting more on just one occasion: a 1-1 draw back in 2019.

There’s no particular reason for this strange superiority when it comes to corners but the numbers don’t lie and it’s an area of the game where Liverpool have clearly bossed it.

Man Utd vs Liverpool Hot Bet

Recommended Bet: Back Marcus Rashford to score @ 3.4 with Betway

And now to the last of our Manchester United v Liverpool betting tips.

We’ve gone through how much Marcus Rashford likes playing in this fixture already, scoring in four of the last five games he’s played against Liverpool.

It’s been a long old season for the England man who has already racked up 56 games, scoring 21 goals in them. As we also already said, United (almost) always score with just one game in 15 they didn’t manage that. And based on that, there’s no reason why it can’t be Rashford scoring, who apart from anything else, is available at bigger odds than either Cavani or Bruno Fernandes.
