Never before have a match between Manchester United and Liverpool grabbed so many headlines…for all the wrong reasons. But it’s easy to see why. Both teams have started this season extremely disappointing. Liverpool has 2 draws after finishing 2nd in the league last season.
Liverpool drew Fulham 2-2 and then Crystal Palace 1-1. Liverpool did beat Manchester City 3-1 on July 30 to win the Community Shield which does showcase the potential this squad has.
As for Manchester United, when it rains, it pours, and that’s how it felt watching United at the moment and apart from Brighton’s own goal, Man U has not scored at all.
Meanwhile, Liverpool had only 7 shots on target through the 2 games. Losing Mane is a big deal for their attack with Salah expected to carry a heavier load.
However, Liverpool did have one of the best defences in the Premier League last season and this should limit help to the struggling Man United attack, which makes Liverpool the slightly more attractive team ahead of tonight’s clash.
Predictions for this game is far from easy and the odds aren’t great; mainly because Liverpool doesn’t feel that much better than United, especially on the road. Similarly, betting on United isn’t really in anyone’s favours at the moment… but then again, never say never.
Prediction – to win:
Manchester United: 15/4
