Liverpool vs Manchester United Tip

Jurgen Klopp’s side will fancy their chances of coming away with a comfortable win in what has historically been the biggest game of any Premier League season, with his side unbeaten in the league since the end of September and top of the table.

Having endured a difficult summer with senior players leaving and being beaten to key transfer targets by their rivals, the Reds hit the ground running and quickly integrated new players into the squad while still continuing to win.

The one league defeat - away to Spurs - came courtesy of a very controversial VAR decision and a late Joel Matip own goal, so they could easily be unbeaten still this season and further ahead of Arsenal than they currently are.

While they haven’t been quite so convincing of late - their recent wins over Crystal Palace, Sheffield United and Fulham have been closer than they’d have liked - they face Manchester United at a good time, with the Red Devils going through something of a crisis.

The defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday night saw them finish of their Champions League group and exit the competition with a whimper, and the Premier League defeat at home to Bournemouth last week saw them drop down to seventh in the league, and they could be in for a tough ride at Anfield on Sunday.

Salah to score

Salah has been in brilliant form this season, with 18 goals in 27 matches - 11 of those coming in the league. With the whole Liverpool attack built around him, he is sure to get several chances to add to that tally on Sunday, and given Manchester United’s defensive injury crisis, he is likely to pounce on any mistakes made at the back.

What is most obvious about this tip however, is Salah’s record against Manchester United.

He has 12 goals in 12 outings against the Red Devils, along with four assists. Given the way the two teams are going this season and the possibility of a good win for Liverpool, we think that will continue on Sunday.

McTominay to be carded

McTominay is like marmite for a lot of Manchester United fans, with some thankful for his habit of scoring important goals and providing a competitive edge in midfield, while others believe his lack of creativity is stifling others in the system.

He has been used in a more advanced role this season, which is why he has received fewer yellow cards than he did in 2022/23 when he was shown yellow 14 times compared to just one this campaign, but we think that could change against Liverpool this weekend.

McTominay has a competitive edge and is a proud Mancunian, so we think the atmosphere and hostile crowd at Anfield could lead to him playing a bit more on the edge and being drawn into a few lively tackles, while he is also likely to be asked to do a marking job on Liverpool’s deep-lying playmaker, whoever it is on the day.

The Scot was booked in the same fixture last season and with Manchester United likely to come out pumped up and with a point to prove, we think he is a prime candidate to get booked.

Diogo Dalot to be carded

With Luke Shaw limping off during the defeat to Bayern Munich, Dalot is the likely beneficiary and man to step in at left-back as he has done several times this season.

Serge Reguilon is another candidate to fill in at the back, but his defensive weaknesses and Dalot’s stronger right foot (which will help when marking Salah, who tends to cut in onto his left) should give him the edge.

However we think it will be a tough day for Dalot over on the left, or even on the right if he keeps Aaron Wan-Bissaka out of the side. He has four cards to his name for the season but is prone to a rash tackle and given how exposed the defence has been at times this season and how often that could happen at the weekend - particularly against Salah - we think he could be in for a testing afternoon.
