Manchester United vs Liverpool Match Preview
This may not have the glamour and context of yesteryears, but Manchester United vs Liverpool is still a top draw game in the North West England between the two most successful Premier League (PL) sides. This game will be played at Old Trafford in Manchester on Saturday, March 10, so check out our Manchester United vs Liverpool prediction and betting tips.
The Red Devils had an incredibly lucky escape in their previous encounter as they came out with full points against Crystal Palace in a 3-2 win. Trailing by 2-0 early in the second half, it looked like Jose Mourinho’s side will come back with no points in their kitty. However, they came back to win in the dying moments of the game to hold on to their second spot in the PL after 29 games (62 pts, W19, D5, L5) ahead of this crucial Manchester United vs Liverpool match. They are a whopping 16 points behind city rivals Manchester City who look destined to win the title. That leaves teams below to scramble for the second spot and United are locked in a bitter battle with Liverpool and Tottenham with just four points separating those three sides. Mourinho will hope that his side’s home form – just one loss in 14 games (W11, D2, L1) will help him get his first win against the Reds in six attempts.
Klopp is searching for improvement too, as he is targeting to improve his one win in six attempts’ record against the Red Devils ahead of this Manchester United vs Liverpool game. His side has the added incentive of going above their rivals with a win, as they start this game just two points behind. The Reds have won four of their last five matches, drawing the other, and have kept three clean sheets in the process. Their performance away from home improved as well, as the Reds have lost only once in their last nine trips (W7, D1, L1). With his scintillating attack, can Klopp go past the ‘park the bus’ antics of Mourinho?

Manchester United vs Liverpool Prediction
There is no doubt that Liverpool have the better attacking quality over Manchester United. There isn’t any doubt that Manchester United will try to ‘park the bus’ in an attempt to stop leakage of goals and keep their second position in the league. However, we feel that there is enough potency in the visitors to go back with points – do not be surprised if they end up winning all three. We are backing a Liverpool draw or win.
