Few rivalries in world football can match the intensity and passion of Liverpool vs Man Utd.
England’s two most successful clubs have been trading hostilities for well over 100 years, and given their meetings are rarely short on incident, there is usually plenty of value to be had when analysing the latest Man Utd vs Liverpool betting markets.
Manchester United vs Liverpool Betting Preview
The most famous rivalry in Premier League football arrives with added spice on Sunday afternoon as the teams lock horns for a 208th time, with both sides on contrasting runs of form.
Man Utd’s early season title hopes already lie on rocky ground with the Red Devils picking up just one point from the last nine available, also losing their imperious 29-game unbeaten run away from home in defeat to Leicester last time out.
Under pressure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is chasing his first league win in this rivalry since taking charge of the club in December 2018, although the Norwegian did finally manage to outwit opposite number Jürgen Klopp in last season’s FA Cup fourth-round clash at Old Trafford. A brilliant late free-kick from Bruno Fernandes settled the contest in the hosts’ favour as they ran out 3-2 winners.
Could Cristiano Ronaldo write some headlines in his first North-West derby since 2009?
For all his formidable goalscoring exploits, the Portuguese ace doesn’t boast the greatest of records in this fixture, with just two goals in his 8 appearances in the rivalry.
He’ll be looking to end his recent dry spell since returning to the Premier League as he chases his first goal in four EPL matches.
Visitors Liverpool head into this fixture in rampant form, having followed up their 5-0 demolition of Watford with a hard-fought 3-2 win at the Wanda Metropolitano.
That midweek Champions League victory against main group rivals Atlético Madrid should ensure, barring a complete collapse, that the Reds end up topping Group B – allowing Klopp to turn his guns on a fully-fledged title charge.
A Roberto Firmino brace helped fire the Reds to a first Old Trafford win since 2014 back in May, and the Brazilian will be hoping to pounce again here after his impressive hat-trick against the Hornets last weekend.
Mo Salah will also be looking to continue his electric start to the campaign having netted more than a goal per game so far (12 in 11 matches).
