Liverpool v Man Utd tips: Can Reds regain top spot?

| 14.12.2018

The Premier League action ends with a cracker this weekend, as Liverpool host Manchester United.

This fixture is never short of drama. The Reds are chasing the win that would take them above Manchester City and into top spot. But the visitors will relish the chance to put a dent in Liverpool’s title challenge.

Who’ll have the edge? We’ve got all of the key odds right here…

Match Odds

Liverpool are just 8/15 to get the points and bragging rights here – the shortest price they’ve been to beat United in the Premier League era.

United are 16/5 to get a vital win over their rivals.

But four of the last five meetings between these sides have ended in a draw. It’s 5/1 for another stalemate this time around.

Talking Tactics

If this is an open game, you’d have to fancy Liverpool. Will Jose Mourinho set his side up to defend deep and grind out a result?

It wouldn’t be a surprise if the United boss left out Paul Pogba in favour of more steel in midfield. But the World Cup winner has a habit of raising his game in the big matches.

If Pogba does play, he’ll have to put a shift in defensively. With Mohamed Salah looking back to his best, Liverpool could cause havoc if there’s space to break into.

Going the other way, Jurgen Klopp looks likely to be without all three of his right-backs. United will look to take advantage with the speed of Marcus Rashford in behind.

Goalscorer Odds

Salah has answered any questions about his form this season with four goals in his last two games. He’s 14/5 to get the first goal here, or there’s 5/6 about him scoring anytime.

Roberto Firmino is also 7/5 to get a goal for the home side.

Romelu Lukaku is United’s likeliest scorer at 5/2. But Marcus Rashford bagged a brace when these sides last met. He’s 14/5 to net again this time.
