Liverpool Betting Preview

Liverpool currently sits in 6th place in the standings having picked up 39 points. Liverpool had a midweek game against the Wolves and they were able to secure a 2-0 victory. Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah scored in the 77th minute to pace Liverpool. They had 57 percent of the possession and six shots on target. They also allowed the Wolves to only have one shot on goal. Liverpool is dealing with some major issues heading into this game in terms of injuries. Thiago Alcantara, Luis Diaz, Joe Gomez, and Calvin Ramsay are all still banged up and won’t be able to go in this game. Jordan Henderson is going to be back though, and he should move into the starting lineup. 

Manchester United Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Manchester United who sits in 3rd place in the standings having picked up 49 points. On Wednesday, Manchester United faced off against West Ham United and they were able to secure a 3-1 victory. Manchester United had 60 percent of the possession and eight shots on target. Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek, Christian Eriksen, and Mason Greenwood are all hurt and won’t be considered for selection in this game. Luke Shaw wasn’t able to go in the last game, but it’s expected that he might be able to return to the starting lineup in this game. 

Shane’s Free Pick

There is going to be plenty of goals scored in this game. Manchester United’s offense has a ton of confidence heading into this game, but I have some concerns about their defense and how much success they will find here. It wouldn’t shock me if both teams finished with at least three goals. Back the over to 3.5 goals to cash here.
