Few matches in the Premier League garner as much anticipation as Manchester United vs Liverpool and this Sunday’s clash collision of the rivals couldn’t come at a more important time. 

With the jury well and truly out on Ole Gunnar Solskjær, a fearsome Liverpool attack has the chance to intensify the pressure on the Old Trafford legend.

Looking ahead to the match, bettingexpert’s The Big Stage podcast was split, with Daniel Jenkins underlining his belief that there’s real value in the under 2.5 goals market – with the stakes leading to a tense and tight affair. 

Rory Jennings however, moved in the opposite direction backing United to pull out a result against the odds and form, in a clash filled with goals. 

Describing Mo Salah as ‘continuing to defy all logic as one of the best players in the world’, Ben Dinnery also believed there would be goals, picking a blistering Liverpool side to take advantage of a ‘pretty poor Manchester United defence’. 

Nonetheless, with the star power and tenacity of Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo as the focal point of this United side, Newcastle fan pundit Dinnery stated he fancied United to avoid defeat and earn a share of the spoils, as he picked a 2-2 draw for the tie. 

The opta stats also pointed towards goals for Liverpool as they revealed that Manchester United haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last nine home matches, a problem elevated by the absence of Raphaël Varane, who remains out until at least November. 

United and Liverpool raised excitement for this Sunday’s clash with their antics in Europe in the week as the two sides rallied to dramatic 3-2 victories against Atlanta and Atletico Madrid respectively. 

Both results underlined why they’re such fan-friendly sides as their wealth of attacking options dragged them to big victories in Europe’s premier competition.
