Sun 17th Dec 2023 | Kick Off: 16:30 GMT | Anfield Stadium

Massive action in the Premier League is set for Sunday, as Liverpool welcome Manchester United to Anfield. The Reds will be looking to continue their excellent start to the new season, with a victory being enough to see them remain top of the league standings.

However, the Red Devils will be looking for a season-best performance after a miserable seven days, which has seen them crash out of the Champions League following defeat against Bayern Munich.

Liverpool Preview

Liverpool endured a campaign to forget in 2022-23, but they are very much back among the chasing sides in the race to win the Premier League title this term. The Reds moved to the top of the league standings last weekend after claiming a 2-1 success against Crystal Palace. Harvey Elliott netted the winner in the first minute of injury time at Selhurst Park, marking the fourth time this term that the Reds have come from behind to claim maximum points.

The victory was their third on the bounce, and ensured that they ended the round a point clear at the summit. Liverpool are the second-highest scorers in the Premier League at present, while they also boast the joint-best defensive record in the top-flight.

Liverpool’s home record against United deserves a lot of attention this weekend, as they are unbeaten at Anfield against the Red Devils since a 2-1 defeat in March 2015. The Reds have won each of their previous two against United at home by an aggregate scoreline of 11-0.

The pressure continues to mount on the shoulders of Erik ten Hag, as United come into this away fixture against their biggest rivals in a poor run of form. The Red Devils have suffered seven domestic defeats already this term, and their season reached a new low in midweek as they crashed out of the Champions League following a hapless display at Old Trafford against Bayern Munich.

United have suffered defeats in two of their last three Premier League matches, with their most recent loss coming in the form of a 3-0 humbling at home to Bournemouth. Their injury list continued to grow in midweek, with both Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire being taken off, meaning that ten Hag will once again need to form another fresh defensive line.

United are winless in their last eight visits to Anfield, but their attacking threat in their recent visits would be one of the most concerning factors. The Red Devils have scored just once in their eight visits since claiming success, and they have allowed eleven goals without reply in their previous two.

Liverpool v Manchester United Betting Tips

There is a feeling that this could be the weekend when the patience finally runs out for fans in terms of the ten Hag plan. A heavy defeat could see him fired before Christmas, and there could be another embarrassing match on the horizon at Anfield for the Red Devils. We could see the Reds landing success against their biggest rivals by at least a three-goal margin.

Pick: Liverpool (-3)
