Liverpool vs. Manchester United – EPL, January 17, 2021

It is always a big game when these two clubs come together. But Sunday’s game sees Liverpool host Manchester United with the teams first and second in the table before the start of the weekend’s fixtures.

All eyes will be on Anfield as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side attempt to put one over its bitter local rivals.

I had a feeling that bookmakers might price this game even closer than it has, but the odds for a draw or an away win are quite tempting here. But Liverpool has been in very good form at Anfield for the last two seasons – so it is a brave person that goes against the home win.

Liverpool vs. Manchester United Match Preview

Liverpool has the best home form in the league this season and will be looking forward to beating its old foe to take first place in the EPL. But Jurgen Klopp is still without a whole host of defenders – and will need to contain the forward movements of the United strikers with some attacks of his own.

Liverpool has scored more goals than anyone in the Premier League this season but has conceded on average a goal a game at the same time. I get the feeling that Liverpool will be relying on the talent of its attack-minded players to get the job done on Sunday.

Interestingly, Manchester United has the best away form in the league this season – and is yet to lose a single game on the road. Unlike Liverpool, recent form has been excellent for the Red Devils, and the club has to go back to the start of November for the last time it tasted defeat.

There are hardly any injury worries for United, with Victor Lindelof the only possible absence on Sunday. Even Paul Pogba has started to play well recently. With Bruno Fernandes pulling the strings, this has to be the best chance United has had for quite a while to beat Liverpool on its own pitch.

Liverpool vs. Manchester United Betting Pick

Pick
  • Liverpool to Win
    -110

Manchester United is undoubtedly the form team of the two here, with Liverpool not winning any of its last three EPL games. But this is one of those fixtures that regularly lives up to the cliché of throwing the formbook out of the window. Liverpool just doesn’t lose at home – and I don’t think it will this weekend either.
