This is a classic matchup between Liverpool and Manchester United. Usually both teams would at least be competing for a Premier League title, but as it stands, Liverpool is already running away with it.
Over the last five matches between these two teams, there has been two draws, Liverpool has won two and Manchester United has won one.
Liverpool have been absolutely perfect this season, winning all 8 of their games. They have 24 points and sit in first place by 5 points with a game in hand.
Their dominant start to the season starts with their attack. They have scored 20 goals this year already, which ranks 2nd in the Premier League. They trail Man City in the goal department by 9 goals, but that does not change the fact that they are clearly the cream of the crop.
They are led by Sadio Mane, who leads the team with 5 goals. They also have Mohammed Salah, who has 4 goals and Roberto Firmino, who has 3 goals. These three guys make up the lethal attack for Liverpool and will be looking to stick it to their rivals so they remain perfect.
Their attack does slow down just a bit on the road as they average 1 goal per game.
Defensively, they are the best team in the league. They have allowed 6 goals all season long. On the road, they have allowed 2 goals total in 4 away matches. Manchester United is in shambles right now and that should allow Liverpool to lock them down.
At most, Manchester United could concede one goal, but that is all to expect against this solid back-line.
Manchester United are having a horrid start to the season. They have 9 points in 8 matches. They sit in 14th place, which tells you how their season is going.
They are coming off a 1-0 loss to Newcastle United, a team that sits in 18th place. Now there are talks that Manchester United needs to fire their manager soon if he cannot start winning.
Another big story is the status of midfielder, Paul Pogba and Goalie, David Gea. Without these two guys, it is going to be even harder for Man United to slow down Liverpool.
This season their attack has not looked in sync. They have scored a total of 9 goals, which ranks 13th in the league. One thing to note is that they scored 4 goals in their opening match, so that said, they have scored 5 goals in their last 7 matches. At home they have scored 7 of their 9 goals, so there may be a little hope that they can breakthrough against Liverpool.
Defensively, Manchester United has not been that bad, allowing 8 goals on the season. They just tend to allow goals at the wrong time, which has resulted in them failing to pick up many wins. As mentioned, their star goalie is questionable for this game. Without him, Manchester United could easily give up three or four goals.
Free Liverpool vs. Manchester United Prediction:
Liverpool are by far the superior team and I like them to win this game and to remain perfect on the season.
4* Free EPL Betting Pick: OVER 2.5
With David De Gea a possible scratch in the starting lineup, I really like the over in this game. You can still get 2.5 without laying a ridiculous amount of juice, so that is where I will look in this match.
