Manchester United and Liverpool will face each other in the Premier League 34th round derby match on Sunday afternoon. The home side wants to continue its excellent form, while the visitors will search for vital points in the battle for continental spots.
Manchester United vs Liverpool Match Preview & Team News
The hosts head to this game after beating Roma 6:2 in the Europa League semi-finals first leg. Although the Red Devils were trailing 2:1 at halftime, Edinson Cavani turned around the result by scoring a brace, while Fernandes, Pogba, and Greenwood secured a significant advantage before the trip to Rome. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side enjoys excellent form, as they missed the chance to win just once on the previous seven occasions in all competitions. Manchester United is about to finish its Premier League campaign as runners-up, as they are 13 points behind Manchester City and four ahead of Leicester City, having a game in hand. United is the second-most efficient team in the competition, while their defense has been pretty decent. Although the hosts will eye a place in the Europa League finals, they will do their best to beat their arch-rivals.
After being eliminated from the Champions League, Liverpool tied two draws in the Premier League and reduced their chances to secure another CL spot. The Reds sit in 6th place, being four points behind Chelsea, who can increase the advantage if they beat Fulham. Leeds United held Jurgen Klopp’s side first, while Newcastle United earned a last-minute draw at Anfield. Liverpool spilled too many points on the road, as they drew six times on 16 occasions and lost three times. The Europa League qualification seems a reality for Mo Salah and the lads, but if they suffer a defeat at Old Trafford, they might lose the continental spot this season since Tottenham and Everton are waiting for their chance. Liverpool needs to put a much better performance to get something from this derby match.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Manchester United is full of confidence, and they want to keep up where they left off. Although a potential victory won’t bring them more than pure satisfaction, Manchester United will be motivated to beat their fierce rivals. We believe the hosts are closer to booking a win, and they will pick up all three points from this one.
Goals Market Prediction
Liverpool should go straight on the opposition’s goal from the match kickoff, as they don’t have time to wait and calculate. The Red Devils conceded on four out of their last five home matches, and we think neither side will keep the clean sheet in this encounter.
