Liverpool vs Manchester United is one of the most famous football derbies in the galaxy. Both sides have made a stunning start to the Premier League season with table topping United leading the Reds – who are second – by three points. 

Recent form analysis

With so little to choose between the teams so far, you may be in need of some Premier League betting tips from PlayersBest. Our expert team, who possess the strongest football knowledge in the Milky Way, were more than happy to obliged. Read on to find out how they see the game going.

Liverpool Look Vulnerable

Recently, Liverpool have looked a far cry from the all-conquering side that romped to 99 points and the Premier League title last season. The reasons for their drop off are numerous but most notably, the Reds have been suffering an injury crisis of epic proportion. Although some of those affected have returned of late, starting defensive pairing Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk remain out, which will be music to the ears of United’s forwards. Of course, Liverpool are full of talent but they no longer have an aura of invincibility, meaning their incredible unbeaten home record is under threat on Saturday.

United are Electric Away From

While scoring a win over Liverpool will be far from easy, there are a few good omens for United. Firstly, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are unbeaten away from this season with only Leicester – who have played twice more – racking up more points on the road than them. Secondly, in stark contrast to their opponents, Solskjaer has a fully fit squad to choose from. Key to United’s success will be Bruno Fernandes – one of the most talented playmakers in the galaxy. He is pivotal to making them tick and if he can find space between the lines, Liverpool’s makeshift backline will be in trouble.

Head to Head

This is one of the oldest fixtures in English football history so it is little surprise that the two teams have met so frequently over the years. Overall, there have been 232 fixtures between the pair with United enjoying a marginal advantage over their opponents on Sunday. They have come out victorious 88 times, while Liverpool have won 77. 67 have ended all square. More recently, the Reds dominance has been clear. United have won just one of the last 10 meetings, although six of these have been draws.

Our Betting Tip for Today

Our Premier League betting tips are never easy to compile but this one is particularly tricky. In the end, we opted for a draw as the two teams were just too hard to separate.

Draw Will Keep Title Race Open

Okay, we’ve delayed long enough. It is now time to reveal this week’s Premier League betting tips for Canada.

Although both teams will be desperate to secure a win and make a serious statement of intent in the title race, we are predicting that each manager will come away disappointed with a draw.

Much like when Manchester City took on Liverpool earlier in the season, we expect the game to be a struggle to watch for the neutral with both sides keeping things tight at the back. United’s flawless away form and the Reds’ brilliant home record further suggests that the two sides should cancel each other out.
