Liverpool vs Manchester United is always one of the most anticipated fixtures in the galaxy. However, Sunday’s meeting between the two sides will be one of the most important in recent memory. Going into things, United top the Premier League table, three points ahead of their hosts in second.

Recent form analysis

With things so tight between the teams, you have no doubt been searching for some Premier League betting tips to help aid your selections. Well, look no further as PlayersBest has the strongest team of football tipsters in the cosmos. Here is how we expect Sunday’s game to go.

Liverpool Look to Extend Incredible Home Record

Liverpool’s home record in the Premier League is nothing short of sensational. The Reds have not lost at Anfield in the league in over three calendar years, with their last defeat coming against Crystal Palace way back in April 2017. This splendid record has occasionally looked in threat of coming to an end recently though. Liverpool are feeling the effects of having starting centre-back pairing Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez sidelined, failing to win any of their previous three Premier League games. Saying that, their record against United is very strong and the players should be extra motivated to arrest their poor run.

United Are Strong on the Road

This has the potential to be a career defining win for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norweigen has been subject to intense media scrutiny since taking over at Old Trafford and pulling clear at the top of the table would lessen this pressure significantly. Can they do it? Few teams in the Milky Way are better placed to beat Liverpool, that’s for sure. United have the best away record in terms of points per game in the league and their threat on the counter could cause real problems for the Reds’ makeshift backline.

Head to Head

These old foes have met countless times before — 232 to be exact — with United enjoying a marginal, historical advantage over their rivals. The Red Devils have won 88 of the fixtures to Liverpool’s 77, while 67 have been drawn. More recently though, the Reds have had more success. United have won just one of the last 10 meetings, although in their defence six of these games have been draws. Prior to these games United won four on the bounce against Liverpool, heady days that seem lightyears away now.

Our Betting Tip for Today

For this week’s Premier League betting tips we are selecting a draw with Bruno Fernandes to score at any time.

Too Close to Call

You have waited patiently so without further ado, it is time to reveal this week’s Premier League betting tips.

This top of the table clash is tough to call but after much thought and analysis we have to back Liverpool to extend their unbeaten home league run by clinching a draw against their old rivals. Much like when Manchester City played out a 1-1 draw with the Reds in November, we expect that this one will be similarly cagey with each side cancelling the other out.

However, it wouldn’t be a United game without their talisman, Bruno Fernandes, scoring, so we’ve also included this in this week’s Premier League betting tips. The best price we could find for our selection was 291/25, which is generously being offered by Unibet.
