Liverpool and Manchester United are set to meet at Anfield today (April 19) in a match that has huge implications on chases for the Premier League title and European qualification spots.
Liverpool vs Manchester United Predictions and Best Odds
Liverpool Current Run of Form
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool head into today’s meeting with Manchester United with plenty of confidence.
The Reds have won 10 consecutive top-flight home games and are unbeaten in the league at Anfield this season (won 12, drawn three).
Liverpool will be boosted also by their performance on Saturday to defeat Manchester City at Wembley Stadium to reach the FA Cup Final, keeping alive their hopes of a historic quadruple attempt.
The hosts have lost just once in their last 24 games in all competitions – a 1-0 home defeat to Internazionale in the Champions League – and will be keen to keep the pressure on Manchester City in the title race.
Manchester United Current Run of Form
Manchester United, meanwhile, will be desperate to improve on the current spate of form which has seen them win just two of their last eight games in all competitions.
The Red Devils are on the brink of losing three away games consecutively for the first time since April 2019 if they are defeated at Anfield.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been on the losing side once in six appearances at Anfield (won four, drawn one) but will be absent from Ralf Rangnick’s squad due to the tragic death of his child.
United could be looking to provide the all-but officially announced new Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, some positivity with a win over Liverpool.
Recent Head to Head
It has been a painfully long-time since Manchester United were able to celebrate victory over Liverpool.
The Reds are unbeaten in seven league meetings with United (won four, drawn three) and will look to extend that further in a bid to bolster their title aspirations.
More concerningly, however, is United’s inability to score at Anfield. The Red Devils have scored in just one of their past five trips to Anfield – three games ended as 0-0 draws.
United’s last away goal against Liverpool was by Jesse Lingard in a 3-1 defeat in December 2018.
Liverpool vs Manchester United Prediction
When it comes to English football, Liverpool and Manchester City are by far the best teams and are dominating the land.
Jurgen Klopp’s side will be desperate to pick up all three points in order to boost their title chances, but United head into this game facing two evils: defeat Liverpool and let Manchester City ease closer to another Premier League title, or provide greater confidence for Liverpool in their title aspirations by slipping to a defeat.
There is a lot at stake for either side, but Liverpool’s attacking options will be more than powerful enough to find a way past United.
