On Sunday afternoon, Liverpool host Manchester United at Anfield, as the home look to continue their relentless run to the Premier League title.
Jurgen Klopp’s team continued their sensational Premier League campaign last time out by recording a 1-0 win at Tottenham. The victory means that the Reds have won 20 0f their 21 league outings this season. In fact, the Merseysider’s have now won 29 of their last 30 matches in the English top-flight.
Liverpool are now 38 Premier League games unbeaten since a 2-1 defeat against Manchester City just over a year ago.
The Reds recent good results have been based on solid foundations, as they Klopp’s team’s have kept six clean sheets in the top-flight.
Incredibly, the home side are unbeaten on home soil in 51 Premier League outings, winning their last 18 league games at Anfield. Liverpool have been highly prolific at Anfield in the Premier League, scoring at least two goals in 17 of their last 18 matches. At the other end of the pitch, Klopp’s team have kept three consecutive clean sheets at Anfield.
The Red Devils have been inconsistent of late in all competitions. However, there have been signs of improvement of late, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team have recorded wins in three of their last four top-flight games.
Last time out in the top-flight, United recorded a 4-0 home win over Norwich. The game saw the visitors score at least twice in three of their last four Premier League matches.
United’s recent matches in this competition have been relatively high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in seven of their last 11 outings.
Manchester United have struggled for victories on their travels in the Premier League of late, as they have won just three of their last 15 away games. However, two of those three victories on the road have been in their last four away games in the English top-flight.
The Red Devils recent away games in the Premier League have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in nine of their last 12 outings on the road.
The visitors have only beaten Liverpool in one of the last nine meetings in all competitions. However, six of the last eight meetings have finished in draws.
The games between these two teams tend to be pretty tight, with not much between the pair. This clash could be a testing one for Liverpool, but we are backing the Reds to record a victory. We are also backing the over 2.5 goals scored too, simply as the Reds are so prolific on home soil, while the visitors have the potential to be a big attacking threat.
Verdict: We are backing the over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 4.6 and or the home win at odds of 2/5. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
