Manchester United (+400)

The Manchester United Red Devils are coming into this match as a struggling club looking for their first victory this season. Erik Ten Hag came into the season with the high expectations of a Klopp-type club changing manager, and has not yet been able to change the ways of Manchester United, leading to two disappointing matches for the squad. The team’s injured players include forward Anthony Martial, who had a good looking pre-season, Victor Lindelof, Brandon Williams, and Facundo Pellistri. The last five meetings against Liverpool has been tough for Manchester United, resulting in 1 win, 3 loses and 1 draw. The Red Devils are looking to change the narrative of their season in this next fixture. Some players that can certainly help achieve this is young superstar Marcus Rashford, playmaking midfielder Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo who considered by many to be the greatest soccer player of all time.

Liverpool (-165)

Liverpool have had an underwhelming start to say the least. Considered one of the top teams in the league and the world, they are yet to get a win. Unfortunately for the Reds, their unavailability list is one of the longest in the league. Their choice for central defenders runs thin with Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate out of action and they are missing 3 central midfielders with ball moving midfielder Thiago Alcantara, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Curtis Jones all unavailable too. Ontop of that, Liverpool’s new 85 million euro forward, Darwin Nunez, is out due to a straight red card received in their last game against Crystal Palace. The last five meetings against Man United have been positive for Liverpool with 3 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw. Despite the number of unavailable players, Liverpool still have plenty of incredible talent ready for the game: Luis Diaz, who scored a screamer to grab a draw in the last game, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino who will most likely be in for Nunez.
