Liverpool v Man United Odds & Quick Betting Lines

Liverpool v Man United January 17, 2016

This will be the first time that Jürgen Klopp will face against arch rivals Red Devils, so let’s see the best Liverpool v Man United odds!

This will be undoubtedly the hottest matchup in the weekend’s Premier League schedule. Both sides are coming off from 3–3 draws midweek, but what a difference! While Liverpool were able to scrape out a point in the last minutes against league leaders Arsenal, Manchester United dropped a two-goal lead against relegation battlers Newcastle United. There is a three-point gap between these two, so a very exciting battle is expected to unfold at Anfield Road on Sunday.

Hosts are favourites according to Liverpool v Man United odds

United are currently sixth in the Premier League table, three points above ninth-placed Liverpool. This encounter could be vital in the Champions League qualification race, and virtually everything point towards a Liverpool victory.

Liverpool have already played against three of last year’s top four teams under manager Jürgen Klopp, and remained unbeaten. They were able to dominate Chelsea and Manchester City away from home and played a 3–3 draw against Arsenal on Wednesday. It is no surprise, it is no magic. This kind of matchup fits Klopp’s footballing style with a lot of Gegenpressing and counter attacking. Against these sides, Liverpool have space to play and they can exploit the speed and mobility of their players. I think they would have beaten Arsenal too with a half-decent backline.

While they flourish against sides playing possession football, they tend to struggle against teams who sit back and try to hurt them on the break. However, I don’t see Louis van Gaal employing a rather pragmatic approach for this game, however a defeat might be his last at Old Trafford. The only thing supporting the visitors’ claim for the three points is Liverpool’s feeble backline. United have all the talent to confuse Liverpool’s makeshift central defence.

Though United look miserable and uninspiring a lot of times, it is hard to see the error-prone Simon Mignolet claiming a clean sheet in this one. Both teams to score seems to be good bet therefore.

How about another goals galore after the two 3–3 draws? All right, managers tend to pay more attention to defensive preparation after such displays, but still, Liverpool’s attackers have all the chance to rack up three goals again. While their defence continue to be shaky, whit Mignolet remaining between the posts and centre halves Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren out with injuries.

Player to watch: Roberto Firmino

The Brazilian playmaker was a revelation against Arsenal. Playing as a false nine or rather as an unconventional nine, he scored two goals in the first half, including a screamer from 24 yards and also hitting the woodwork on another attempt. He might draw more attention from United’s central defenders this time, but with the confidence he has at the moment, he can easily troll them with another brilliant display.
