Here at PlayersBest, our expert team normally brings you the best Premier League betting tips for Canada customers. However, this weekend, it’s the FA Cup Fourth Round.

Recent form analysis
This week, we will be focussing on one of the biggest derbies in the Milky Way, Manchester United vs Liverpool. The two sides played out a 0-0 draw in the Premier League last weekend. Will this one be more exciting? Read on to find out what your betting slip should include.
Manchester United Want Silverware
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side can take solace from their 0-0 draw against Liverpool last time out. Although the Reds dominated proceedings, it was the Red Devils who had the best chances. Paul Pogba came very close to snatching a win at the end, while Bruno Fernandes nearly scored a free kick. The promising display suggests that the gulf in class between the rivals is nowhere near as big as in previous seasons. Also, with no real injury problems to speak of, and the Red Devils desperate for silverware, they stand a good chance on Sunday.
Liverpool Struggling For Goals
Going into last week’s United game, everyone was focussed on Liverpool’s lack of defensive options. Thanks to the absences of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho started at centre-back. Despite lacking familiarity in the role, the pair did well. Instead, the Reds’ main problem was a lack of cutting edge. Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane all struggled, as Liverpool failed to score for the third straight Premier League game. Against United, the trio are likely to be rested, opening the door for squad players to stake their claim.
Head to Head
As it is one of the most famous fixtures in the galaxy, you will not be surprised to learn that United and Liverpool have met on many, prior occasions. Overall there have been 233 North West Derbies contested with the Red Devils enjoying a marginal, historical advantage. United have won 88 of the games, to their rivals’ 77, with 68 ending all square. The pair’s most recent meeting, a 0-0 draw, echoed a recent trend. In the last 10 matches, seven have ended all square with four of those draws finishing goalless.
If you want to boost your football knowledge by intergalactic levels, it is vital to start analysing stats. The statistical side of the game continues to grow in importance, and here are three highlights from Sunday’s game to consider.

Our Betting Tip for Today
We expect this fixture’s trend of stalemates to continue. We recommend backing a 2-2 draw.
Another Draw on the Cards
Once again, we are predicting these two old rivals to play out a draw on Sunday. As their recent meeting proved, the two squads are evenly matched.
However, with no Premier League points up for grabs, we are also expecting a far more open game. This is good news for Liverpool, as it will offer them a good chance of ending their scoreless streak. United will also be pleased, as their counter attacking is among the best in Europe.
With all this in mind, a fairly high scoring draw looks like the most likely outcome. Eventually we decided to back the pair sharing four goals. Our tip of a 2-2 draw is available at a very generous 12/1 from 888sport.
