Manchester United v Liverpool – Premier League Betting Guide: Sunday 24th Feb 2019

Sunday 23rd February 2019
Manchester United v Liverpool 14:05

A must-see game in the Premier League this Sunday as heavyweights Manchester United welcome old rivals Liverpool to Old Trafford.

Before the start of this week, Liverpool are joint-top on 65 points with Man City, but with City in League Cup action this Sunday then the Reds can go back to the top with a draw or a win here.

United are flying high at the moment too and after a string of good results are into fourth on 51 points, but with Arsenal and Chelsea hot on their heels for that all-important Champions League place then the Red Devils will also be looking for maximum points here.

The sides met at Anfield earlier this season and that saw the home side win 3-1, but with United looking a much better side now under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer then we can expect things to be a lot tighter here.

The match betting, however, still sees Liverpool – despite being the away side – as the 2.20 favourites, with the draw 3.40 and United 3.20.

4 of the last 6 head-to-heads ended all-square too so the 3.40 – the biggest price of in the match betting market – certainly stands out.

Both teams scored in 3 of the last 4 clashes too, so this might appeal at 1.61, while with 6 of the last 8 head-to-heads going UNDER 2.5 GOALS then this is another option to have on your radar at 2.10.

Man Utd are unbeaten in their last 5 home games to Liverpool too and in their current form the match betting that sees Liverpool clear favourites is slightly surprising. But it is worth pointing out that Liverpool have also only lost 1 of their last 7 vs United – again, backing up the draw trend in this fixture.

Liverpool’s Shaqiri netted twice when the sides met earlier this season, while United’s Rashford was on target twice in this fixture last term – that ended 2-1 to the Red Devils.

However, the bet that stands out to us is United/Draw in the ‘Double Chance’ market at 1.70. We’ve already pointed out that the home side are unbeaten in their last 5 against Liverpool in front of their own fans, while their current form suggests they will come out all guns blazing. There will also be a lot of pressure on Liverpool here to get a result as their big lead at the top has been cut by the likes of Man City and Spurs – that could make for a tense afternoon for the Merseysiders.

Best Bet: MAN UTD/DRAW ‘DOUBLE CHANCE’ @1.70
