One of the biggest matches of any Premier League season will take place on Sunday, as Manchester United welcome Liverpool to Old Trafford. It will be the second meeting between the sides this calendar year, with the Reds looking to gain revenge on United for their FA Cup quarterfinal defeat before the international break.

Manchester United vs Liverpool Odds

Liverpool will come into this massive clash between the rivals as the commanding 37/50 favorites with BetXchange. A United victory is priced up at 33/10, with the draw also an outside selection at 7/2. Both teams to score could be a popular selection for bettors, with this option being a 2/5 chance on Sunday.

Head-to-Head Record

Man United holds the advantage in the overall record between the sides, winning on 83 occasions compared to 71 victories registered by Liverpool. A total of 59 previous encounters have ended in draws. United landed a dramatic victory in the previous clash between the sides in the FA Cup, scoring a 4-3 extra time success in mid-March.

However, in the league, victories have been harder to achieve in this fixture for United. The Red Devils have won just once across the last eleven league meetings between the sides, with Liverpool landing six victories across the same period. The reverse clash this season ended in a 0-0 draw.

Pressure On Title-Chasing Liverpool

The increased pressure in this fixture on Sunday will be on Liverpool, as the Reds will need to claim maximum points to remain ahead of Arsenal and Man City in the race for the title. It has been a stunning season to this point for the Reds, and their consistency has been clear for all to see over their last five, winning on four occasions over that period.

Liverpool’s away record in the Premier League has also been very strong throughout the season, as they have won six of their last seven on the road. Over that period, they have suffered just one away defeat. That consistency will be key if they are to end the season as Premier League champions.

Man United Still In Champions League Hunt

United’s standards have dropped following an impressive first campaign under Erik ten Hag last term. The Red Devils currently sit sixth in the standings, and only victories will see them put pressure on Tottenham and Aston Villa in the race for a Champions League position. But, United have been inconsistent throughout the campaign, which has been evident over their last four after losing on two occasions and claiming just a single victory.

However, Erik ten Hag has an excellent home record against sides in the top four positions, winning four of the previous five. Their most recent success was achieved on Boxing Day against Aston Villa. United’s 4-3 win in the cup last month also means that they could claim home wins in two matches against Liverpool in the same season for just the third time in history.

Manchester United vs Liverpool Prediction

United have more injury issues to contend with in the defensive positions ahead of this fixture, and Liverpool will be after blood following their cup defeat last month. Therefore, we could see Liverpool claiming a comfortable victory at the Theatre of Dreams.

Pick: Liverpool at 37/50 with BetXchange.
