Manchester United vs Liverpool Betting Tips

Manchester United are hosting Liverpool at the iconic Old Trafford in Manchester on the 2nd of May 2021 Sunday at 21:00 PM IST. Ole and Klopp go head to head with both teams having their objective cut out. Man United would need a win to maintain their second position while Klopp’s men could come into Europa League contention if for a win. 

Manchester United Form & Team News

Manchester United are the second-placed team in the Premier League points currently with 67 points from 33 matches played so far. They won as many 19 games while drawn ten and lost just a meager four games which in context is the combined lowest with fellow rivals Man City. They have drawn a lot of games which in turn have dented their Premier League title hopes but on a larger perspective, Man United looks a settled unit now with Ole getting into the scheme of things pretty nicely. They could well and truly push for the title from next season on while a second-place finish this season being the first priority going into the flag-end of the tournament. 

Antony Martial had a knee injury which is expected to keep him on the sidelines for at least a month from now. Phil Jones who too had a knee injury is back in training and is expected to be back in action after that. Bruno Fernandes in this season has matured into an absolute gem for Man United, he has thus far netted 16 goals and also had ten assists making him the highest on both of the aspects. Marcus Rashford also has had his fair share of success which includes ten goals and eight assists. Cavani, Greenwood, Pogba all starting to fire with Lindelof, Bissaka, Maguire in defense and De Gea at goal, Man United looks capable enough to challenge any team on any given day.

Liverpool Form & Team News

The current champions in the Premier League have had a horrid Premier League season currently sitting in the sixth position not capable of even Europa League qualification let alone Champions League. Klopp’s men have gone horribly wrong while injuries to key players for long durations also played a huge role in this reversal. They have played 33 matches while winning 15, they have lost nine and drawn the same no of games in the process. Comparatively, their away record is decent compared to their record at Anfield. They until recently after a very bad stretch of losses had started to win a few games but up until the last three games where they have drawn all three games which have again put their hopes for Championship qualification in thin air. 

Phillips, Origi and Kelleher are doubtful for the next game against Manchester United while the likes of Henderson had sustained a groin injury. Matip, Gomez and Virgil are out of the season. Klopp’s strategy and planning have all gone up for a toss given the long injury list of players. This has contributed to a large extent to the team’s sorry state now. Salah continues to plunder goals at will with as many as 20 goals to his name so far. Mane and Jota have scored eight goals each. The likes of Arnold, Robertson and Fimino have all contributed to the team’s cause. Firmino is the top assists provider but the lack of goals from his side is putting pressure on fellow strikers Salah and Mane who until last season combined to become the most feared trio going around in Football at that time.

Our Tipster’s Angle

 The head to head record is a testimony to the fact of how intense this rivalry is. Manchester United have won seven while Liverpool have managed to win five. This time, in fact, Manchester United hold the aces even if the odds are stacked against them. Liverpool are back to winning ways but it is still going to be pretty hard to stop Ole’s men.

Tip 1: Total Goals over 2.5

Four of the last seven matches that Manchester United have played across competitions have had the total goals to be over 2.5. While playing at home, Manchester United have had two of their last three matches where the total goals have been over 2.5. At home in the Premier League, Manchester United have four of the last five matches where the condition was satisfied. In the case of Liverpool, three of the last six matches played across competitions, have had the total goals to be over 2.5. Playing away, two of their last three games have also had the total goals to be over 2.5. In their last five matches in the Premier League, they have two games in the last four which had the total goals to be over 2.5. Their last head to head match also had over 2.5 goals in it. So it’s quite likely the match will have over 2.5 goals. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for the total goals to be over 2.5 is 1.82.

Tip 2: Both teams to score

In the last seven matches played by Manchester United across competitions, four have had both teams scoring. While playing at home, two of the last three matches Manchester United have played across competitions have had both teams scoring. At home in the Premier League, Manchester United had four of the last five matches where both teams scored. Four of the last five matches Liverpool have been part of have had the above condition being satisfied. Both of the last two matches played away by Liverpool, they have had condition satisfied. In the Premier League this season, all three of the last three matches Liverpool was part of have turned out to have both teams scoring. Their last head to head match between the two sides while playing at Manchester United also had yielded the condition as mentioned above, so it’s most likely both teams might end up scoring. The odds for Both Teams to score according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.66


United have the records in their favor but the odds favor Liverpool, this match is surely not one that is a dead-rubber. On a wider angle, several teams will have their eyes transfixed on this because of the result which will have a make or break effect on the other teams. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:

  1. Total Goals over 2.5 @1.82
  2. Both teams to score @ 1.66
