Liverpool vs Manchester United Premier League Odds, Time, and Prediction

Liverpool vs Manchester United a.k.a. the Northwest Derby is one of the hottest rivalries in English soccer. The 211th edition of the derby is on the program on Sunday, March 5, 2023

After losing 5-2 to Real Madrid at home, Liverpool’s future in the Champions League doesn’t look good. That said, their only way to get back to the elite club competition is to finish in the Top 4 in the 2022-23 Premier League.

Right now, they’re six points behind the closest team (Tottenham) but the season is long, so they have plenty of time to get there. For that, however, the Reds need to win as many games as possible, including the one against Manchester United on Sunday.

Liverpool Need to Start Playing Better Soccer ASAP

Jurgen Klopp’s men are sitting in the No. 6 position in the Premier League standings with an 11-6-7 record or 39 points. They’re six points behind fourth-placed Tottenham and 10 behind their next opponent, Manchester United.

They’re without a loss in the Prem in their last four games, conceding zero goals along the way. However, before that, they got hammered by Wolves 3-0. The Reds seem to have straightened out their defense – at least in the EPL – but their offense still looks dull.

The team with Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Cody Gakpo, and others hasn’t scored more than two goals per game since Boxing Day. There is some good news, though. Diogo Jota is finally fully fit and is ready to play for all 90 minutes for the first time since October.

Unfortunately for the Reds, there’s some bad news as well. Darwin Nunez is out with an injury, along with Luis Diaz, Thiago Alcantara, Ibrahima Konate, and Joe Gomez.

Manchester United in Celebratory Mood

The last game Manchester United played was the final of the 2023 Carabao Cup. The Red Devils defeated Newcastle 2-0 at Wembley, winning their first trophy in years. 

The win over the Magpies was their 12th win of 2023, as well as their 10th straight game without a loss. Actually, the only defeat these guys have suffered this year happened to table leaders Arsenal in January. Even that was a close game – the Red Devils lost 3-2 after conceding the crucial goal in the final minute of regulation.

Liverpool vs Manchester United Prediction

Led by in-form Marcus Rashford, Manchester United have been sensational this season. They’re in top shape right now, but we think some of their players need a break. Perhaps they don’t need to sit out Sunday’s game, but they probably need to take it slowly. That said, we probably won’t see a vintage display from the Red Devils.

This goes especially for the fact that they’re playing Liverpool at Anfield. The Reds are desperate for points and with the support of their fans, they’re going to give their utmost on Sunday.

Pick: Liverpool to win & over 2.5 goals
