Manchester United v Liverpool Betting Tips, Preview and Predictions
March 07, 2018
Manchester United take on bitter rivals Liverpool on Saturday, pitting the Premier League’s second and third placed teams against one another in the headline fixture of the weekend.
Jose Mourinho’s men are flying high on the back of a win against Chelsea and a breath-taking comeback triumph over Crystal Palace on Monday night.
However, Jurgen Klopp’s relentless attacking outfit have been in top form recently with Mohamed Salah continuing his exceptional scoring run.
So, with the grudge match almost here, we’ve picked out the best tips and bookmaker odds.
Lukaku to put Red Devils ahead
Arriving at Old Trafford for big money in the summer, Romelu Lukaku has gone on to outshine the likes of fellow forward movers Alvaro Morata and Alexandre Lacazette.
Lukaku has netted 24 goals in all competitions this term and is hitting top form at just the right time.
The lethal Belgian striker has scored three in his last four Premier League games and has either netted or assisted 11 goals in his last 11 games for the Red Devils in all competitions.
So, look to back 888sport 5/1 odds on Lukaku scoring first on Saturday.
Spoils shared in scoring draw
Each of the last four meetings between these two clubs have ended in a draw.
The Reds are flying offensively of late, scoring 11 in their last three games – with Salah leading the way.
However, United are no slouches either, as Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez begin to show signs of a formidable partnership up top.
With such attacking riches on show, 7/2 BetVictor odds of both sides scoring in a draw look great value.
