Man Utd v Liverpool tips: Can Red Devils dent rivals’ title bid?

| 24.02.2019

It’s always spicy when Manchester United take on Liverpool. But it could be even more heated than usual this weekend, as neither side can afford to lose.

Liverpool have the chance to reclaim top spot, while Arsenal and Chelsea are right behind United in the race for fourth.

Who’ll be able to derail their rivals here? Keep reading for all the odds and info.

Match Odds

It’s five years since Liverpool last won at Old Trafford, but that could change here. We’ve got them as 13/10 favourites.

United are 2/1 to win another big domestic clash under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. They’ve beaten Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea since he replaced Jose Mourinho.

But with so much at stake, these two could cancel each other out. Four of their previous six meetings have ended with a draw. It’s 12/5 that this one follows suit.

Talking Tactics

Solskjaer will hope that Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard are fit enough to start. If not, he’s likely to stick with the side that beat Chelsea on Monday.

Paul Pogba controlled the game at Stamford Bridge. He’ll look to take control of midfield again and get Marcus Rashford in behind.

Liverpool could go for the disciplined James Milner ahead of Naby Keita to try and minimise Pogba’s influence. And as Virgil van Dijk returns from suspension, Fabinho can also slot back into his holding midfield role.

They’ll fancy their chances against United’s backline too. As good as the Red Devils have been under Solskjaer, they struggled defensively against Paris-Saint Germain. Liverpool’s front trio is up there with anything in Europe. They could cause real problems for the hosts.

Goalscorer Odds

Mohamed Salah heads up the First Goalscorer market at 4/1, with Rashford, Pogba and Romelu Lukaku all sharing 11/2 favouritism for United.

Xherdan Shaqiri was the match-winner at Anfield in October. He’s 7/1 to get the last goal again here.

Pogba has three goals in his last two domestic games. There’s 9/5 about the World Cup winner getting on the scoresheet.
