Liverpool v Manchester United Betting Tips
Liverpool have officially had the best start that the top 5 leagues in Europe have ever seen, dropping 2 points from just 21 matches. Surprisingly, those dropped points came against Manchester United, back in October. Even on that day, it was a late, late Adam Lallana goal that gave Liverpool the point. Jurgen Klopp’s men have never looked back, beating everything in their way, but will they drop more points against their fiercest rivals on Sunday?

Liverpool’s Recent Form
Last Time Out For Liverpool
Liverpool rode their luck in their last match, but still ended up winning 1-0 away at Tottenham. Liverpool started the game in typical fashion and should have taken an early lead. Robert Firmino saw his shot cleared off the line, before Alex Oxlade Chamberlain hit the base of the post just seconds later. Firmino took his next chance however, sliding past debutant Japhet Tangana before slamming his shot home. In the second half however, the best chances fell to Spurs. Serge Aurier hit a shot straight at Alisson and Heung Min Son put his shot high over the bar when through on goal. The best chance however, fell to Giovanni Lo Celso. The Argentinian slid in at the back post to reach Serge Aurier’s shot, but somehow put the ball wide of the far post when it looked a certain goal. That miss maintained Liverpool’s clean sheet record, making it 6 in a row now for the Scousers.
Manchester United’s Recent Form
Last Time Out For Manchester United
Manchester United looked back to their best last weekend in a 4-0 win, but you would expect them to be rampant against a poor Norwich side. United took an early lead through Marcus Rashford, who got on the end of a Juan Mata cross to put the ball past Tim Krul. Norwich still looked dangerous however, with Todd Cantwell coming closest for the visitors. After the break, it was all United and Rashford’s 57th minute penalty put the game beyond any doubt. 2 minutes later, it was 3 as Anthony Martial headed in following a short corner. With 15 minutes left, Mason Greenwood completed the scoring with the youngster scoring another long range effort. The win moved Manchester United up to 6th in the table and more importantly, got them back to winning ways. But if they are going to get a result at Anfield, they are going to have to outscore Liverpool in a high scoring game. But can we see that happening?
Where’s The Value Bet?
Since conceding the second goal in the Merseyside Derby on the 4th December, Liverpool have gone 585 minutes without conceding a Premier League goal. In that time, they’ve faced a Jamie Vardy led Leicester City, an in form Wolves and Adama Traore, and a Tottenham side that has scored plenty since Mourinho took over. After a slow start to the season defensively, Liverpool look like they have hit their stride. Will Manchester United be able to stop them? Well, if they were fully fit then there might be a chance. But, with main contributor Marcus Rashford injured, and no one else free-scoring, it’s highly unlikely. Take Rashford out of United’s side, and they have only scored 8 in their last 8, and that’s including 4 goal hauls against Newcastle and Norwich. After 6 clean sheets in a row, and with Rashford out injured, 21/20 for Liverpool to keep a clean sheet seems like huge odds.

Bet UK’s Headline Betting Tip
Liverpool look as impressive as ever, and although Man United have seen a recent resurgence, Rashford is a huge miss. We can see this being a very one-sided game, with a statement win for Liverpool in this historic derby.
