Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s bubble as Manchester United manager was busted last week following their 2-0 home loss to PSG. However, they bounced back in style when they beat Chelsea by the same score line in the FA Cup. Paul Pogba was back to his usual best after providing a sublime assist for Ander Herrera to open the scores before adding a cracking second to seal the tie.
Liverpool, on the other hand, will be looking to re-establish a three-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table. The Citizens will be involved in the EFL Cup final, giving room for Liverpool to better stretch the title race. The Reds have struggled to put teams away of late, and this will sound like good music to the ears of Manchester United fans who are flying high right now.
There have been Over 2.5 Goals scored in Man United's last six home games and with the quality of forwards involved here the trend is likely to continue. You can back Over 2.5 Goals at odds of 1.75 here.
United have won eight of their last nine matches in the Premier League and they have not lost during that period. Liverpool for their part are undefeated in 26 of their last 27 matches though they have tended to draw when facing top six sides. Backing a Home Win Draw No Bet at odds of 2.15 looks the better choice to go with here.
Both teams have found the back of the net in three of the last five meetings between the two and that makes odds of 1.60 for Both Teams to Score look attractive.
Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial are doubts for this match but they could be fit by Sunday for selection. Eric Bailly could also be restored to the lineup in an effort to deal with the speed of Liverpool’s attacking trio.
Virgil Van Dijk is expected to return following his suspension in the Champions League against Bayern Munich. Dejan Lovren is unlikely to recover from injury in time to face Manchester United on Sunday.

Manchester United: De Gea, Young, Lindelof, Bailly, Shaw, Pogba, Matic, Herrera, Mata, Lukaku, Rashford.
