Liverpool vs Man United Prediction and Betting Odds: Recent Form
Klopp’s men have been one of the best sides not only in England but also in Europe after making it to the final 4 in the Champions League. They are playing some of the best football and are well deserving to win a big tournament. In the premier league, they are going toe to toe with Manchester City with just a point separating the team from the leaders.
In the last five outings, they have remained unbeaten with two draws against Benfica and City while winning against the likes of Watford and Nottingham Forest. With 7 games left, this is a golden opportunity for the Reds to win the remaining fixtures and go on top.
On the other hand, Manchester United aren’t able to pick themselves up from the hole that they have dug for a long time. Even with the change of guard from Ole to Ragnick, the Old Trafford-based side has fell short in the Champions League and FA Cup besides underwhelming appearances in the Premier League.
They are just hanging on to 7th position with 14 triumphs, 9 draws, and 8 losses this season. In the last five games, they were first trampled by Manchester City followed by a close-fought win against Spurs while bowing down against Atletico Madrid in the Round of 16 games. Despite holding off Leicester, they couldn’t do much against Everton in Goodison Park.
