Manchester United vs Liverpool Preview and Prediction 2021

Manchester United vs Liverpool predictions for Sunday’s Premier League clash at Old Trafford. Liverpool hope to close the gap on the Premier League top four with a win over rivals Manchester United. Read on for all our free Premier League predictions and betting tips.

Liverpool have seen both teams score in four of their last five matches in all competitions.

No team inside the top 16 has drawn more games than Manchester United in the Premier League this season.

Both teams have scored in three of Manchester United’s last four home games.

Manchester United have scored 21 goals in their last 6 Premier League home games

Manchester United have only been leading at half-time in one of their last ten league matches

Midweek goalfest boosts Red Devils’ confidence

A dreary goalless draw at Elland Road last weekend for Manchester United was followed by a bizarre and dramatic 6-2 win against Roma in the Europa League and the Red Devils will be hoping to carry that goalscoring touch into a clash with arch-rivals Liverpool.

With ten points between them and the top spot and a 12 point cushion inside the top four, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side actually have very little to play for in the Premier League but that won’t stop the fans demanding a strong finish to the campaign and a win against Liverpool would be the perfect way to start the run in.

Reds on the hunt for Champions League qualification

Unlike their rivals, Liverpool have an awful lot to play for. The soon-to-be dethroned champions are 13 points adrift of their hosts and four points off a top four spot. Their draw with Newcastle last weekend made it three draws in a row in all competitions and their brief resurgence looks to have hit a roadblock.

One positive for Jurgen Klopp’s side is the return of their goalscoring touch. They have now scored in seven of their last eight games in all competitions and they haven’t failed to score away from home since the start of January.

Stalemate on the cards at Old Trafford

Keeping Manchester United out at the other end might be a problem, though. The Reds have conceded in five of their last six games and Manchester United have failed to score in just one of their last 12 competitive matches, so backing both teams to find the net looks a decent shout on Sunday.

In the end a stalemate looks the most likely outcome here. Liverpool have drawn three in a row in all competitions and no team in the top 16 have drawn more Premier League games than Manchester United this season. Half of these ten draws have come against fellow big six sides, including one at Anfield in January, so we’re opting for a third 1-1 scoreline in a row for Liverpool on Sunday.
