Premier League: Manchester United vs Liverpool Betting Analysis and Prediction

Manchester United and Liverpool will meet Tuesday in one of the most famous and long-standing English Premier League rivalries. Take a look at this Manchester United vs Liverpool Betting Analysis.

Liverpool is firmly in the hunt with Manchester City for the league title, while Man U is looking to sneak into the top four and earn Champions League qualification.

Recent Form

Liverpool beat the league-leader Man City 3-2 in the FA Cup over the weekend, though they did concede two second-half goals after enjoying a 3-0 lead. They are unbeaten in their last 12 league games, a record stretching back to December 2021, and have taken 13 points from a possible last 15.

Manchester United, meanwhile, has been in oscillating form all year and needed a hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo to get past Norwich City, the last team in the table, 3-2 over the weekend. Just the game before, they lost 1-0 to relegation-stricken Everton, which was their most disappointing result of the season since the 4-1 loss to Watford that got former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær fired.

Manchester United vs Liverpool Betting Analysis

Manchester United betting analysis

Man U heads into the match as a heavy underdog, according to most Premier League betting odds; they have performed poorly against top sides in the league and have not been able to string impressive performances together for much of the campaign. On top of that, the announcement of soon-to-be manager Erik ten Hag means that caretaker Ralf Rangnick will have even less control over his players than he did before.

United has been notorious for blowing results this season, so with them, nothing is off the table, no matter who they are playing; this does extend to upsets, given they have one of the most talented teams in the league, although a surprise win would be just that: a surprise.

Liverpool Betting Analysis

Liverpool’s spectacular run of form has made them one of the most dependable Premier League picks. Their potent attack also leads into the over more times than not, although this does depend on the matchup at times.

There is not much value in a straight-up Liverpool win here, but taking them by a certain number of goals could earn a greater profit and still not be all that unlikely, given the 5-0 drumming they handed Man U last time.

Updates

Manchester United Updates

Luke Shaw, Edinson Cavani, Raphael Varane, and Scott McTominay— all regular starters or rotational players— are out for the Liverpool tie due to an assortment of injuries. Mason Greenwood is still out of the squad because of a suspension stemming from off-field conduct.

Betting guides will be quick to note that Ronaldo is the man in form, coming off of his hat-trick, but the team around him will need to step up against Liverpool for them to have any real chance of defying conventional Premier League predictions and beating the potential champions. 

Liverpool Updates

Liverpool has no injured or suspended players, completely flipping last year’s script on its head.

Two of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz, and Diogo Jota will have to start on the bench, and that decision could come down to fitness and rotation of the squad rather than simply putting the most in-form three out there.

Manchester United vs Liverpool Betting Preview

Liverpool’s front three, regardless of which three that may be, can score goals in a hurry regardless of the run of play or how they are looking individually for most of the game. The featured note in sports betting guides on Liverpool is that they like to press high up the pitch, meaning that Man U will have to be especially solid in midfield to plug the gaps and hold up against the unrelenting intensity.

Manchester United vs Liverpool Betting Prediction

Premier League stats do not always tell the story, but in this case, they do; Liverpool’s 12-match unbeaten streak has not happened by coincidence, and Man U’s spotty defensive record means that they are susceptible to the Reds’ attack. 

This match would have been more enticing with United’s teams of the past, but this time around, Liverpool should have no problem getting past their famous opponent.

There are +600 odds of a Man U win and -270 odds for a Liverpool win, with +420 odds on a draw.
