Liverpool vs Manchester United - 12/17/18 English Premier League Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

In the English Premier League, Liverpool will host Manchester United at Anfield. Liverpool and Manchester United have one of the oldest rivalries in English football meaning we should expect a terrific game that both teams will be desperate to win for their passionate fans.

Manchester United managed to win their last Premier League match as they beat Fulham. It was a big win for Manchester United as they are falling behind the top teams and the pressure is building on the manager. On a negative, Manchester United lost in the Champions League midweek and the team looked very poor in that match. The defence was terrible as they allowed their opponents to have 11 shots which ended up being very costly.

On the other side of the coin, Liverpool have been looking very strong. The Reds are top of the Premier League and they also had a big win midweek as they beat Napoli to secure a round of 16 spot in the Champions League. Salah is playing well as he scored midweek while the defence is in exceptional form. In the game against Napoli, the attack was exceptional as they created over 20 shooting chances and that determination ensured victory. Winning this match will be essential for Liverpool as Manchester United are only a few points behind and anything but a win could see the Reds move down to 2nd.

This should be an interesting match since Manchester United have the ability to lift their performances when they are playing big teams. This was shown earlier in the season when the Red Devils beat Juventus away from home. That being said, Liverpool are in exceptional form and are playing much better football when compared to Manchester United. I see Liverpool having too strong a team to lose at home. I am predicting a Liverpool win.
