17/12 Accurate Football Predictions: Liverpool vs Manchester United

Betting Tips

Manchester United, forced to revisit the agonizing memories of the seven-goal massacre from the previous season, travels briefly to Merseyside to play Liverpool on Sunday in front of an expected record-breaking Anfield crowd. Up to 57,000 spectators are anticipated for this weekend’s main Premier League match, where the two titans will be looking to make up for some blunders they made throughout the week.

Liverpool vs Manchester United

Liverpool is attempting to win the Premier League for the fourth time in a row. They have only suffered a single defeat in their Premier League campaign, a contentious 2-1 setback against Tottenham on September 28. They have won six and drawn three Premier League games since that loss, propelling them to the top of the standings.

Liverpool overcame a 2-1 deficit to triumph at Crystal Palace last Saturday. With eight goals scored, it was their third consecutive Premier League victory. One of the key reasons Liverpool’s season is going so well is their home form. All seven of their home league games have ended in victories, and a win over United will put them level with Aston Villa on eight wins on home soil in the Premier League this season.

You can see how difficult of a task the Red Devils have this weekend at Anfield with statistics like those. They start the weekend six points behind fourth place in the Premier League, where they are currently sixth. When this game starts on Sunday, that lead will probably have grown.

The Reds are behind Liverpool by ten points and have a far worse goal differential. After their first, United actually had a three-goal differential. If United were to lose 7-0 at Anfield, replicating their terrible league performance from the previous season, it would be far worse.

Verdict

After defeating Crystal Palace the previous weekend, the Reds lead the Premier League going into gameweek 17. They have only suffered a single league loss this season, taking 13 of the final 15 points that were available.

The fact that Klopp’s team has won all seven of its home games by an overall score of 21-5 and has yet to lose at Anfield makes things much more dire for the heartbroken visitors.

For Manchester United supporters who witnessed their team’s humiliating elimination from Europe in midweek—three losses in their last four games across all competitions—that will not be pleasant reading. Manager Erik ten Hag faces the possibility of being fired on Christmas Day.

But the Red Devils are formidable offensively, particularly when facing front-runners. Their transitional play can be rather good at times, and since Liverpool is predicted to control the ball, this should present an opportunity for their attackers to score against a team that has given up goals in 17 of their 24 competitive games this year.
