Liverpool vs Manchester United Betting Preview
Is the most famous rivalry in Premier League football about to come roaring back into life?
What a game we could have in prospect here.
With a resurgent Man Utd now boasting the outright lead in the Premier League, and an all-conquering Liverpool just showing signs of fatigue after a relentless 18 months, both these fierce old rivals look evenly matched heading into the first North West derby of the season.
Both might be placing important records on the line heading into this title tussle.
The rivalry and title race aside, Utd have one major incentive to spur them on as they head to Merseyside: ending Liverpool’s phenomenal run on home soil. The Reds laboured to a 1-1 draw with West Brom in their last home league game, but that point was enough to stretch their unbeaten run at Anfield to an unprecedented 67 games.
On the flipside, Jürgen Klopp will be aiming to reinvigorate his side’s title defence against a Man Utd team yet to lose a single league game on the road in 2020/21.
The home side weathered some late Man Utd pressure when the two sides last met at Anfield back in January to record a 2-0 win en-route to their first ever Premier League title.
Mo Salah made the game safe for the Reds with a 93rd-minute strike, the Egyptian’s first goal in the North West derby.
The visitors have had little to cheer about in this rivalry over recent seasons, with Utd winning just one of the last eight league meetings – a 2-1 victory at Old Trafford in March 2018.
However, it’s usually a close-run thing.
At 147/50, the draw could be the value here, with both teams settling for a stalemate on five of those occasions.
