Manchester United vs Liverpool: Prediction and Betting Tips

19:15, May 13 2021
Manchester United vs Liverpool prediction for Thursday’s English Premier League clash at Old Trafford in Manchester. Second-placed Manchester United playing their second game in as many days, host Liverpool in a match that was postponed last week due to pitch invasion by United fans. Follow on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Manchester United have their focus on Europa League

As we expected and predicted in our Manchester United v Leicester preview, United fielded a weaker lineup against Leicester and lost the match handing their rivals Manchester City officially the Premier League title for season 2020/21. Solskjaer will field a full-strength team against Liverpool and end the season in a positive way.

Manchester United and Liverpool matches have always attracted all football fans around the world and although this match may not be important for United in terms of position in the Premier League table, United fans don’t like to lose to Liverpool because of the long history of rivalry between the two clubs.

 Trophyless Liverpool chasing a top-four finish

As opposed to their opponents, Liverpool need to win this match to have a chance of finishing in the top four and securing a Champions League spot. The reigning Champions League holders were eliminated from the competition and have nothing else to play for in the season other than opting for a top-four finish. After two major trophies last season, Jurgen Klopp’s team will finish empty-handed as they aim for a strong finish to their season.

In their last match against Southampton, The Reds secured a comfortable win after two draws in the Premier League. Klopp will be confident with his team’s away form as they travel to Old Trafford. Liverpool haven’t lost in their last four away games and lost just one in seven. After a very unstable season, Klopp will look to extend his team’s six-match unbeaten run.

Key Stats

  • Manchester United have just one loss in 15 matches
  • United have just one loss in their last seven home games
  • United have scored in their last nine home matches
  • Liverpool are unbeaten in six matches
  • Liverpool are unbeaten in four away matches 
  • Liverpool have scored in their last seven away matches

Manchester United vs Liverpool Prediction

Although this match is not a derby, the attention it gets and the intensity in this match are unmatched. Liverpool need to win as we mentioned earlier and we think they are more motivated to get a win here as they did in 2018 when they beat United 4-1.

Liverpool are slight favorites to win with the bookies and we think they might get a point here if they can maintain their current form. We will back a double chance for our first prediction.

For our secondary prediction, we will back both teams to score as there is a 58% probability for that to happen.
