Liverpool vs Manchester United Premier League Betting Tips
For all the talk of a “big five” or “big seven” Premier League clubs, there is no bigger rivalry in English football than Liverpool vs. Manchester United. On early Monday morning Australian time, these two giants of the beautiful game will play against each for the 201st time across all competitions.
Liverpool Favourites for Good Reason
Liverpool haven’t beaten Manchester United in the Premier League since the 2013-14 season, when they won 1-0 at Anfield and 3-0 in the return fixture at Old Trafford. But with Liverpool currently top of the EPL on 42 points, 16 ahead of United, this season is starting to resemble 2013-14 – when the Reds finished second on 84 points, 20 ahead of United.

Also working in Liverpool’s favour is the fact that they’ve won the last 10 league matches they’ve started as favourite, according to Unibet. What’s more, in the last seven EPL matches at Anfield in which they’ve started as favourite, they’ve won six of those to nil. United have failed to score only twice this season, but given what they’re up against, there’s good value to be found in Unibet’s 3.00 odds on Liverpool winning to nil.

A few stats point to a high likelihood of this game being settled in the second half.

Liverpool have won the second half in each of its last five games. Given these stats, punters should have their eyes on the half-time / full-time market, with Neds offering 4.25 on Draw / Liverpool.
Mohamed Salah is in red-hot form, having scored seven times in his past seven EPL appearances. Salah has opened the goal-scoring in five of Liverpool’s last seven league games, and Madbookie is paying 4.33 for him to do it again against United.
