Manchester United v Liverpool Recent Form
Manchester United are on a fine run of form in the Premier League.

That put an end to a run of six defeats in seven.
Manchester United v Liverpool Recent Matchups
It was 0-0 when these sides met at Anfield in the reverse fixture back in January. United then knocked Liverpool out of the FA Cup with a 3-2 win at Old Trafford a week later. But there has been very little to separate these two sides in recent seasons. Seven of the last 10 Premier League meetings between them have finished all square.
Manchester United v Liverpool Stats & Analysis
Liverpool may have won the Premier League and UEFA Champions League titles in the last few years but they still struggle at Old Trafford. Jurgen Klopp has never won away at Manchester United as a manager. Liverpool themselves have won just one of their last 15 matches at Old Trafford in all competitions.
That this match is taking place at Old Trafford probably suits both sides. Manchester United’s home form has improved dramatically in recent months with eight wins in their last 10 home games. Liverpool have also improved on the road. Jurgen Klopp’s men have won five of their last seven away league matches. That’s their best streak for over a year.
They’ve certainly tightened up defensively. Liverpool have kept three clean sheets in four away Premier League games and conceded just once. They kept three clean sheets in the 16 away league matches before then.
Manchester United v Liverpool Bets
Liverpool are the slight favourites to win this match. The Reds are available at 2.69 to secure three vital points in their push for the top four. It’s 2.75 for Manchester United to win the match. It’s 3.75 for the sides to draw which looks likely considering how many of these matches have finished all square down the years. Six of the last nine Premier League meetings between the two sides have ended in a draw.
Manchester United tend to grow into matches. Solskjaer’s men get better as the game progresses and often come into their own after the break. They’d be 11th in the table if only the first halves of matches counted and top of the league if only the second halves did. It’s 3.02 for United to win the second half here or a halftime/fulltime of X/1 is 6.75.
There are some players on both sides in fine form. Mason Greenwood has been grabbing the goals for United lately. The youngster has four in United’s last four Premier League matches and is 3.10 to score anytime. At the other end, Mohamed Salah scored two in Liverpool’s last trip to Old Trafford and is 5.00 to score the first goal here.
