The Red Devils also held their opponents to a scoreless stalemate in the rematch this season at Anfield. Liverpool have not been held to two goals in consecutive league meetings with United since they were defeated 1-0 and 3-0 in the 2007-08 season.

Nevertheless, United have managed to secure a solitary victory in their previous eleven Premier League encounters against Liverpool (four draws, six losses). Fortunately, that solitary triumph occurred in this very fixture last season and was also Ten Hag’s inaugural Premier League triumph. Since September 2015, when they last won consecutive home league games against the Reds.

Check out our predictions of the day for Manchester United vs. Liverpool

Prediction 1: Manchester United x Liverpool / Both teams to score

Liverpool’s aversion to keeping clean sheets should spell optimism for a Man United side who have already put four past the Reds in 2024, although the expected return of Endo could do wonders for the visitors’ defensive prospects against their equally jaded opponents.

Ten Hag’s squad may still be reeling from the psychological toll of Thursday’s devastating loss. Although neither goalkeeper should leave with a clean sheet, we have faith in Klopp’s squad to use the devastation in the hosts’ defense to maintain their lead in the title race.

Prediction 2: Manchester United x Liverpool / Over 3.5 goals

It is recommended to place bets on more than 3.5 goals, and a seven-goal contest would serve as an enticing correct score prediction. Manchester United, which has lost two games in the past month (4–3), including one against Liverpool, may have a difficult time ahead due to the absence of as many as six first-team defenders.

Prediction 3: Manchester United x Liverpool / Salah to score anytime

Mohamed Salah emerges as the offensive force to behold. In 34 appearances for Liverpool this season, he has amassed 22 goals and 12 assists. Against Manchester United, he has an outstanding record, having scored 13 times in 14 appearances, with 12 of those goals coming in his last eight.
