Manchester United Prediction – Can Manchester Utd turn things around?

It’s an extremely tough fixture straight after the international break for Manchester United on Sunday afternoon as they prepare for the visit of old foes, Liverpool, in what could be a ‘make or break’ clash for both the hosts and United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

After what has been a surprisingly lacklustre start to the Premier League campaign, Manchester United find themselves in unfamiliar territory as they find themselves in the bottom half of the top flight in a disappointing 14th place on the league ladder.

With just 1 point separating them from the bottom three and the relegation zone, United must make an impression against Liverpool on Sunday but having registered just 1 win out of their last 7 matches, this match takes on even more importance for the hosts.

Indeed, Manchester United have managed just 2 league wins so far this season with a 4-0 opening day win over Chelsea and a 1-0 victory over Leicester City, but overall it’s been a shadow of the United side that started so well when Solskjaer started with the club as they’ve suffered defeats to Crystal Palace, West Ham and Newcastle United already this season.

Liverpool Prediction – Can Liverpool resume their dominance?

In total contrast to the problems that Sunday’s hosts, Manchester United, have had to endure so far this season, Liverpool have made a blistering start to the new Premier League campaign as they’ve won all 8 of their matches played to date which has taken them to the top of the league.

Following Manchester City’s 2-0 win away at Crystal Palace on Saturday, Liverpool’s lead at the top has been reduced to 5 points but all three points at Old Trafford would restore their lead back to an 8-point margin.

Liverpool’s impressive start to this season includes notable wins against Arsenal 3-1, Chelsea 2-1 and Leicester City 2-1 while their away record reads an excellent 4-0-0 8/2 which includes wins at Southampton, Burnley, Chelsea and Sheffield United which has contributed to The Reds’ great start to this new term.

The bigger picture shows that Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 12 away matches in the Premier League, winning their last 8 on the trot on their travels in addition to winning 2 of the last 3 encounters against United in all competitions.


Key-Facts – Manchester United v Liverpool

  • Manchester Utd have won just 1 out of their last 7 matches in the EPL
  • Liverpool have won their last 8 away matches on the trot in the EPL
  • Liverpool have won 2 of the last 3 meetings against Manchester United


Betting Tips Verdict

Manchester United are wobbling and look really vulnerable right now while Liverpool will look to assert their authority at the top of the league with a win here.
