LIVERPOOL TO BEAT MAN UNITED AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE AT 3/1!
Man Utd are guaranteed a top-four finish and subsequently made as many as 10 changes to the team that downed Aston Villa when taking on Leicester midweek.
The Red Devils are afflicted by a hectic schedule at present and we wouldn't read too much into that defeat against the Foxes, with Brendan Rodgers' side motivated to prevent another top-four finish slipping from their grasp.
In the league alone, United have suffered just two defeats in 29 appearances since early November (W18-D9-L2), winning six of the last eight. However, it's noticeable that draws - primarily against top-half opponents - have hampered their chances of mounting a serious title challenge this term.
Man United And Liverpool To Draw
Chelsea (twice), Man City, Leicester, Liverpool, Arsenal, Everton and Leeds have all drawn games with United this season, as only Brighton, Fulham and West Brom have endured more stalemates over the campaign, while Liverpool have drawn just one game fewer than Solskjaer’s team. Past head-to-head encounters would also point towards another stalemate, with six of nine league meetings since 2016/17 finishing that way, including three of four at Old Trafford.
These meetings have also been particularly low-scoring. Eight of ten league clashes since the start of 2016 have seen fewer than three goals, and with eight of Liverpool’s past 10 league matches against anyone also going under that threshold, we’d be surprised if this game was too explosive in terms of goal-mouth action.
Under 2.5 Goals
Liverpool of course need the points more badly, with their top-four hopes on the brink with both Leicester and Chelsea winning their most recent outings.
Their form has picked up with four wins from six unbeaten league matches, although after stalemates with Leeds and Newcastle, their 2-0 win over Southampton was hardly all that convincing as Thiago netted the second after 90 minutes and the Saints had their own chances.
The visitor’s output has certainly come into question this season and since the start of February, they’ve scored more than a single goal in just four of 13 appearances.
Their prospects are improved though as the hosts are hampered by Harry Maguire’s absence at the back and given Eric Bailly’s history with injuries, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Solskjaer elected to rest the Ivorian rather than risking him to play another 90 minutes so soon after facing Leicester.
That could mean a start for Axel Tuanzebe, though it’s not as though their problems at centre-back are as bad as Liverpool’s well-documented troubles.
