We think United could take advantage of Liverpool’s defensive woes and steal three points, priced at 2.88 with bet365. Below you can read the reasons for our United vs. Liverpool predictions.
We expect Manchester United to Win 2-1 at 12.0 with Bet365
It is a match that defines English football, Liverpool and Manchester United are two of the oldest rivals in the country and have a real hatred for one another. It will be a feisty encounter at Anfield.
Liverpool are undoubtedly the most unpredictable team in the Premier League. The Reds have an abundance of quality attacking players, but are erratic in front of goal and even more so in defence.
Under Jurgen Klopp we can expect them to go all out in attack. Sometimes it works, such as when they beat Arsenal 4-0 back in August, but sometimes it doesn’t and they can be exposed on the counter.
This is why we think Manchester United looks a good bet to win at 2.88 with bet365, especially given their recent form. In defence they have been solid, and Mourinho is known for masterminding big defensive performances when the odds are against him.
United are also well equipped to hurt Liverpool in attack. Last season they defended their way to a 0-0 at Anfield, but this year with Romelu Lukaku in the ranks they have far more threat at the other end.
The Reds will leave gaps in defence, and the pacy Marcus Rashford could be the player to exploit that. He is priced at 8.0 with Unibet to score the first goal.
Hopefully there will be more action than in that stalemate last season. We think a 2-1 United win is the way to go at 12.0 with bet365.
Liverpool host arch-rivals at Anfield on Saturday afternoon. It’s a game between two contrasting sides that could go either way depending on how Jurgen Klopp and Jose Mourinho opt to set up.
The Reds looked unstoppable at the start of the season, but really hit a lull in September with just one win. Whilst exciting in attack, they struggle to take chances and look vulnerable in defence to say the least.
Liverpool Form: DDWLDD
United on the other hand have enjoyed a near perfect start to the season, and have real title aspirations this year for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson left. They are scoring at will and look solid in defence as well.

This is arguably the biggest clash in Premier League history. There is no love lost between the two teams, and between them they have shared some memorable moments in years and decades gone by. Who has the edge from their previous 226 meetings?
Adam Lallana is nearing a return from a thigh strain but is still almost certainly out of contention for Saturday. Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Bogdan are both also out long term, but otherwise Jurgen Klopp has his full squad to choose from.
United have a fair few injury problems, Marouane Fellaini the latest ruled out after picking up a knock with Belgium during the international break. Paul Pogba is still out, as is Michael Carrick and long term absentees Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo. Romelu Lukaku should be fit.
