The Red Devils have been doing really well in the Premier League. Before the 27th round has started, they were at the 4th place on the table. And if they remain at that position till the end of the season, we’ll see them in the Champions League.

The problem is that Arsenal and Chelsea have basically the same plans as Manchester United, which is why they’ll have to keep on playing well. And they’ve been playing really well lately. And it’s all thanks to one guy – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Since he’s been in charge, they’ve been playing with more freedom and creativity. The result is that they’re scoring much more than during the Mourinho era. And with goals come points as well.

The Premier League is their main focus right now. It’s because their chances in the Champions League are very slim after losing to PSG at the Old Trafford 2:0. That result surprised many, not just because the Red Devils played at home, but also because SG had some serious problems with injuries.

Still, this doesn’t mean that they’re not good at home. On the contrary, Man United are among the best teams when it comes to playing at home turf. Since Solskjaer has been at the helm, they’ve won 3 Premier League matches and played draw once at the Old Trafford.


They have the same number of points as Manchester City, which means that if they beat United on Sunday or at least play a draw, they’ll get back on the top of the table. But, winning points against the Red Devils won’t be easy for a number of reasons.

First of all, it’s been almost five years since Liverpool have won at the Old Trafford. This shows just how tough Man United are when playing on their turf. On top of that, Liverpool haven’t been in a too great form lately. They played draw three times in the last 5 matches they played, counting all competitions.

There are some good news for Liverpool fans, though. They had big problems with injuries in the last couple of weeks, but those problems seem to be less severe now. Dejan Lovren is almost completely fit to return from an injury, Van Dijk is properly rested after sitting out the Champions League game against Bayern due to a suspension.

These two played one another 3 times last year and we saw a total of 12 goals in those 3 matches. I think they’ll give us the same kind of spectacle this Sunday. Betting on a large number of goals seems like the right solution!
