Tight and Tense 90-Minutes Expected at Old Trafford
Liverpool played host to Man Utd in the Premier League last weekend and as we predicted, the game proved to be tight, tense and competitive. Only three yellow cards were handed out during the 90-minutes, which is a surprise given the heat that this match usually produces. In the end, neither side could find their way past the opposing goalkeeper and the game ended in a 0-0 draw.
Man Utd have only lost one of their last six matches in all competitions, going down 2-0 in the semi-final of the League Cup to local rivals Man City. The host shave picked up four wins and a draw in their other five games, making Man Utd the form favourites. Liverpool have lost one, won two and drawn three of their last six fixtures but haven't conceded more than one goal in any of those matches.
The last 179 meetings between these two clubs have produced 69 wins, 51 draws and 59 defeats for Man Utd, but in recent seasons Liverpool have had the better of the home side. Liverpool have gone six games without defeat against the Red Devils, picking up three wins and three draws.
Marcos Rojo, Facundo Pellistri, Brandon Williams and Phil Jones have all been ruled out of Sunday's big match, but United have been without the majority of those players for a while now and it shouldn't have too much of an effect on their starting line-up.
Konstantinos Tsimikas, Diogo Jota, Naby Keita, Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk all remain sidelined for the visitors and Sunday's clash might have come too soon for Joel Matip who only returned to first-team training on Tuesday.

- Total Goals Under/Over: Under 2.5 Goals @ 1/1 with bet365
- Double Chance: Man Utd to Win or Draw @ 4/9 with bet365
- Both Teams to Score: BTTS – No @ 5/4 Betfred
Total Goals Under/Over: Under 2.5 Goals
Each of the last four meetings between Man Utd and Liverpool have produced under 2.5 goals, including last weekend's clash in the Premier League which ended in a goalless draw. Five of Man Utd's last six matches have now produced under 2.5 goals, so you can see just why we're expecting another low-scoring game on Sunday. Four of Liverpool's last five outings in all competitions have produced under 2.5 goals and the only game during that period that saw over 2.5 goals scored arrived in the FA Cup against Aston Villa's youth team.
Double Chance: Man Utd to Win or Draw
Man Utd head into Sunday's match as the form favourites with four wins, one draw and one defeat from their last six matches. Man United might not have won any of their last six games against Liverpool but three of those games have ended in draws. In fact, seven of the duo's last 10 encounters have ended in stalemates, so if Man Utd don't manage to carve out a win this weekend then history suggests they will probably draw. Liverpool have lost one and drawn three of their last six matches, suggesting that a win for the visitors would be unlikely this Sunday.
Both Teams to Score: BTTS – No
Both teams have scored in just one of the last four meetings between Man Utd and Liverpool, with two of those last four encounters ending goalless. The hosts have kept clean sheets in four of their last six matches and have failed to score in one of those matches. Liverpool have kept clean sheets in three of their last six matches and have failed to score in three of their last four fixtures. Only two of the visitors last six outings in all competitions have ended with both teams finding the back of the net.
