Manchester United vs Liverpool Betting Tips
The North West Derby is taking place on Man United’s turf this weekend. That’s the place where the Red Devils are hoping to get the kind of support from the stands that would take them to win at least a point against the leading team on the Premier League table. The Reds are big favorites in this duel and it’s not only because of their impressive form. It’s also because their opponent isn’t playing very well this season.
The Red Devils are currently at the 12th place on the Premier League table with only 9 points after 8 rounds. They did have a promising start of the season, but lately, they’ve been really terrible. They are without a win in the last three rounds, having lost two and playing draw on one occasion in that period. They lost to West Ham and Newcastle, both matches in which they were the away team. The game they drew was the one against Arsenal at home.
That result gives them some confidence ahead of the clash with Liverpool. Obviously, the Red Devils are good when playing against heavyweight teams. Apart from playing a draw with Arsenal, they also managed to beat Chelsea this season. They also beat Leicester City, a team that’s been playing really well this season. And all of those games were played at the Old Trafford.
What’s got to worry them is that Liverpool have been in a superb form. This is the team that’s won every single Premier League game this season, collecting a total of 24 points along the way. That puts them at the very top of the table, with 6 points more than the second-placed Manchester City. Liverpool plan to stay here, as winning the Premier League is their main focus this season. The thing is that the Reds are still without a trophy since this competition got rebranded as the Premier League back in the early nineties.

Manchester United Form and Latest News
They’re without a win since September, counting all competitions. And the last match they played before the international break was the one against Newcastle which they lost 1:0. Still, their poor form is not their main concern ahead of the clash with Liverpool. What worries them the most is their injury list.
Their arguably best player, Paul Pogba is out, as well as David de Gea, their number1 goalie. Man United number 9 Anthony Martial is also struggling with an injury and so are Jesse Lingard, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Phil Jones, and a few others.
Liverpool Form and Latest News
The Reds have been in a fantastic form this season and if it weren’t for the loss to Napoli in the Champions League in September, they would have a flawless record in all competitions.

On top of everything, they’re extremely motivated to win this game, which makes Liverpool an even bigger favorite on Sunday.
