Our Tipster’s Angle

Despite the fact that Liverpool had an average start to the season, they are exceptional at home and are expected to come out on top. Manchester United on the other hand is more likely to go down fighting.

Tip 1: Liverpool To Win

This is expected to be a clash of the season as both the teams are in great form and their position in the points table suggests that. In the last five head to head matches, Liverpool have won three matches and the remaining two matches have ended in a draw. And also, Manchester United are winless in the last five head to head matches at Anfield. There is nothing to separate both the teams by considering the current form. But the head to head matches says that Liverpool has a better grip in this fixture and are more likely to win the match at 1.98 odds available on the Casumo sportsbook.

Tip 2: Under 4.5 Cards

With that being said, both the teams are very disciplined as well. In the current season of the English Premier League, Liverpool have received just 0.9 cards per match. While Manchester United have received just 1.9 cards per match. Apart from that, the total cards were under 4.5 in the last nine head to head matches. Liverpool have seen under 4.5 cards in eight of their last nine matches in all competition. Manchester United on the other hand have seen under 4.5 cards in all of their last eight matches in all competition. So, it is very likely that the total cards shown in this match will be under 4.5 cards at 1.71 odds available on the Casumo sportsbook.


This is looking like a low scoring affair with the home team Liverpool having an edge as they have defeated Manchester United in the last two home matches. Summarizing a couple of bets mentioned above

  1. Liverpool To Win @ 1.98
  2. Under 4.5 Cards @ 1.71
