Manchester United News and Form – Can Man Utd beat leaders Liverpool?

Two wins is all that Manchester United have to show for their efforts in the Premier League this season. It has been one point from their last three only. They have taken a W2 D1 L1 record on home soil at Old Trafford, the wins in that sequence coming against Chelsea and Leicester. Since they thumped Chelsea 4-0 in their opening game of the season, United have not scored more than one goal in any fixture.

Liverpool 2-1 correct score


Both of United’s home wins this season were with a clean sheet. They are going to be waiting on a late fitness test on keeper David de Gea who had a hamstring problem while on duty for Spain in the international break. Untied are sat down in the bottom half of the table heading into the weekend, with only 9 goals in 8 games. They will be missing Paul Pobba again because of a foot injury.

United have held the lead at halftime in three of their four home fixtures, while they have opened the scoring in 5 of 8 played this season in the EPL. United have shipped 75% of their goals this season in the second half of fixtures. Their last five league games have all finished under 2.5 goals, largely because of their lack of attacking threat. United are a team under pressure and another defeat would be hugely damaging for them.

Liverpool News and Form

It is a 100% record that Liverpool have maintained since the start of the new season. That is eight wins from eight games played and they are streaking away at the top of the table. They haven’t even looked as good as they were last season in all honesty. It has been only two clean sheets that they have taken this season and three of their four wins on the road have been by one goal margin only.

Liverpool have scored at least three goals in four of their last five league games. So their goal-scoring output is more than fine. Liverpool are averaging 2.5 goals per game this season, with 75% of their road games going over 2.5 goals. If they win this game then they would move level with Manchester City’s record of 18 consecutive Premier League wins.

Liverpool have scored at least two goals in 16 of their last 17 Premier League games, plus in 10 of their last 11 games they have been winning at both half time and full time. They could get another boost on the weekend as keeper Alisson is likely to be back in action. There remains a doubt over Mo Salah after his knock suffered against Leicester in Liverpool’s last Premier League game.

Manchester United v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool to win: There’s little to justify anything but an away win for Liverpool, who have been winning games without even hitting top gear recently. United have some troubles and because they aren’t at full strength, are not too likely to keep Liverpool out. Away win.
