Where: Anfield Road, Liverpool, EnglandWhen: Sunday, December 17, 6:30 pm CET
The Reds are awaiting their biggest rivals in the match that closes Premier League’s round 17. For the moment, Jurgen Klopp’s unit leads the way in the standings and is in excellent shape. United struggles, as usual, with them occupying the sixth spot and having various problems on and off the field. The Reds are the favorites here, yet, that doesn’t have to mean anything when these two powerhouses meet.
Liverpool vs. Manchester United Preview
Liverpool has one point more than Arsenal and is currently undefeated for six straight meetings across all the competitions. When we look only at the Premiership fixtures, that stretch goes up to nine events.
The Reds’ offense is fantastic, constantly delivering a high number of goals. In the most recent four clashes, Liverpool scored 12 times. Mo Salah is the second-best goalscorer in the Premiership with 11 hits netted, and he also has seven assists on his account.
Liverpool played 11 games at home across all the competitions since the year began. They’ve posted victories in all of them, recording at least three goals in all but one encounter.
Erik Ten Hag is still in charge at the Old Trafford. And we don’t understand why, to be completely honest. The fans are becoming more and more frustrated, and the last half an hour against Bournemouth showed their displeasure.
United was humiliated in his own house, losing 0-3 to the Cherries, who destroyed the hosts in every single aspect of play. A shocking opener might have disrupted the Red Devils’ mindset, but knowing the worth and the salary of United’s players, that can’t be an alibi for a disgraceful performance.
When playing away from home, United’s games are interesting. Six of them saw three or more goals. Overall, in ten outings, Manchester had four wins, five defeats, and one tie.

Liverpool vs. Manchester United Predictions
The recent tradition isn’t pleasant for United’s fans, and we don’t think it will change following this event. Liverpool is in fantastic shape and extra-motivated when playing against the Red Devils. United has obvious problems, so the hosts’ victory here is the best pick.
