This match will be played on 07/04/2024 at 22:30

Old Trafford will be the centre of attention when Manchester United and Liverpool. Square off against each other in the greatest Premier League derby. The Red Devils are low on confidence following a heart-breaking 4-3 loss to Chelsea. It is no wonder the bookies see them as underdogs in Sunday’s showdown. Both Jonny Evans and Raphael Varane should be fit for the match despite limping off with injuries in the midweek defeat, while Marcus Rashford is pushing for a start.

The Reds, on the other hand, survived Sheffield United on Thursday evening to retain top position in the standings. Anyhow Liverpool are more of a team than Manchester United. We predict that Jurgen Klopp’s men are going to prove their worth on the field. Andy Robertson is widely expected to return to the starting XI following his excellent performance against the Blades, with Harvey Elliott pushing for a recall as well. Fellow midfielder Wataru Endo has overcome his injury.

Outright Betting

Manchester United are big outsiders at 17/5 while what would be a third draw inside 90 minutes between the pair this season can be backed at a best price of 16/5.

Despite failing to defeat Manchester United in two attempts already this season, Liverpool are odds-on 7/10 favourites on JILI777.

Betting Angles

There are no shortage of contenders and cases to be made in the player foul markets here but I’m going to opt for both. Bruno Fernandes and Alexis Mac Allister to commit a foul at 4/5 on JILI777.

United skipper Fernandes has been the Red Devils’ most prolific hatchet-man this season. Having racked up 11 yellow cards across all competitions to date.

That record of ill-discipline has coincided with the Portuguese midfielder averaging 1.3 fouls per-game in the Premier League this season so far. Being penalised at least once in a sizeable 24 of his 29 outings, including each of his last 10.

Moving into Liverpool’s midfield. I’m also prepared to back Alexis Mac Allister to get on the wrong side of the referee at least once during this dust-up.

The World Cup winner averages a shade under two fouls per 90 in the top flight this term and has been reprimanded at least once in seven of his last nine outings.

Manchester United vs Liverpool Prediction

Things look good for Liverpool ahead of the trip to Old Trafford. They won nine, drew one, and lost one of the previous eleven Premier League fixtures. The Reds will be highly motivated to make another big step towards the league title by beating fierce cross-city rivals away from home. Manchester United have been playing hot and cold since the beginning of the season.

However, their back line was all over the place in the last weekend’s match against Brentford. How the Bees did not score at least three goals in that game is still a mystery. We will back Liverpool to get the win on Sunday at the 1.70 odds.

Mohamed Salah has been Liverpool’s standout performer this season as well. He has 16 goals to his name in this term of the Premier League. The Egyptian King was on target in a 2-1 win over Brighton seven days ago. He will have plenty of room to deliver past the leaky Manchester United defense. You can back Mo Salah to score anytime on Sunday at the 1.95 odds.
