When: Sunday 24 October 2021, Kick-off 16:30
Where: Old Trafford
On Sunday afternoon, north west rivals Manchester United and Liverpool go head-to-head at Old Trafford in a game that could be pivotal for the home side.
The Red Devils recent form has been highly inconsistent, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team has struggled to find any sort of continuity of late. A midweek 3-2 home win over Atalanta means that United have won just two of their previous six matches in all competitions. The men from Manchester have at least been relatively prolific in front of goal of late, as they have scored at least two goals in three of their last four games.
When it comes to results to Premier League results, United haven’t won any of their last three league matches, while suffering two defeats. The Red Devils usually strong form at Old Trafford has not been so strong of late, as they have claimed just two wins from their previous seven league outings on home soil. They have also failed to keep out the visitors in their previous nine top-flight games at Old Trafford.
Jurgen Klopp’s team look determined to mount realistic challenges on all fronts this season. The Reds currently sit second place in the Premier League table, a point shy of league leaders Chelsea. They are also top of their Champions League group after a 3-2 victory midweek win at Spanish champions Atletico Madrid.
The game saw Liverpool produce yet another prolific attacking display, as the Merseysider’s have scored at least two goals in their last nine matches in all competitions. In fact, they have also scored at least three goals in eight of those games too. Egyptian international Mohamed Salah has been particularly deadly in front of goal of late, scoring six goals in his last five appearances for the Reds.
The visitors have been difficult to beat in the English top-flight, as they head into this clash on a run of 18 games unbeaten in the Premier League. The Reds attacking threat may have been crucial on that unbeaten run, but Jurgen Klopp’s team has also kept clean sheets in seven of their previous ten top-flight games.
The Merseysider’s are undefeated in 11 away games in the English top-flight, having scored at least three times in their previous five matches.
The only thing that has been predictable about United of late has been their unpredictability of late. The Red Devils have a squad of quality players, but the individuals have now always performed to the best of their ability. Liverpool have been in top form of late and we are backing the visitors to record a victory in a high-scoring encounter.
Our Tips: We are backing the away win at odds of 6/5 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 3/5. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
