Liverpool faces Manchester United shortly following its meeting with Manchester City in the FA Cup semis. Though, this event is a Premier League one, with stakes being massive at the moment. The home side chases the title, while on the other side, United hopes to reach the fourth place which leads to the UEFA Champions League.
We from BetXchange are ready to make one very thorough analysis and offer our pick for Tuesday’s event.
Liverpool vs. Manchester United Preview
Liverpool slashed City in the opening 45 minutes of their FA Cup clash, showing what power they possess in the attacking line. Even though City’s goalkeeper Steffen did make a cardinal mistake, we are close to believing that even if it wasn’t for his error, the Reds would still create a massive lead.
This was the ninth straight event where Liverpool didn’t lose, posting seven wins and two draws during that stretch. The previous four were with both teams to score and at least four goals, which only proves that the Reds have hit the full-speed button when it comes to scoring.
Yes, the defense has slowed down a little bit, following a fantastic stretch filled with clean sheets, but that is somewhat normal, having in mind that they played against City twice and had tough UCL challenges.
Meanwhile, Manchester United doesn’t look well. The Red Devils have numerous problems, starting with the performances on the pitch, while on the other side, the fans still wage war with the Glazer family.
The win over Norwich, 3-2, was solely due to Ronaldo’s inspiration, and if it wasn’t for the Portuguese player, we are more than sure that the Canaries would have gotten away from Trafford with at least one point in their bag. It was hard for their fans to see Norwich dictating the tempo in certain sequences, pressuring Maguire and the boys, who again committed several big slips.
This was the first triumph for the Red Devils after three events, during which they lost to Atletico Madrid and Everton while playing a draw against Leicester. What is noticeable is that they managed to keep only two clean sheets in the latest nine games. They conceded at least once in the previous eight outings.
Head to Head Games
Liverpool humiliated United in the first meeting of the year, trashing them at the Old Trafford, 0-5. It was one very painful experience for the Red Devils, who didn’t suffer such a loss at home for a long time. The most recent clash at Anfield was in January 2021, and that one ended without goals.
United didn’t score a goal against Liverpool on the road in five of the last six events, and they have been without a win at Anfield since 2016.
Liverpool vs Manchester United Predictions
The Reds are red-hot, while on the other side, United isn’t anywhere near the desired level of play. Despite them having all those superstars, the chemistry is poor, and everything comes down to their individual quality. This should be an easy task for the hosts, who are offensively superb at the moment. Their win is out of the question, and even though the profits aren’t as high as many of us would have wanted, the risk is very, very low.
