class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With the Reds out of form and still missing key players, Al Hain-Cole is backing Solskjaer's high-flying team to come out on top at Old Trafford
Manchester United and Liverpool will meet for the second time in a week in Sunday’s FA Cup clash at Old Trafford.
The sides shared a 0-0 draw at Anfield in last weekend’s Premier League match, their third stalemate in four encounters.
Manchester United vs Liverpool latest odds
Considering the sides have now drawn seven out of the last 10 meetings, bet365’s 12/5 (3.40) odds on this one also ending up all square after 90 minutes are likely to attract plenty of interest.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are without a win in four league games following their disappointing 1-0 home defeat by Burnley on Thursday but can be backed at 13/8 (2.63) to bounce back with a morale-boosting win on enemy territory.
In contrast, the Red Devils are flying high after suffering just one defeat in 12 fixtures in all competitions and are priced at 8/5 (2.60) to come out on top against their rivals for the first time in seven meetings.
Manchester United vs Liverpool team news
Victor Lindelof is unlikely to feature after dropping out of the line-up for Wednesday’s win over Fulham, while Brandon Williams is also doubtful.
Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Naby Keita and Diogo Jota are all ruled out for the visitors, with Jordan Henderson also likely to miss out due to the minor fitness concern that saw him miss the Burnley defeat.
Manchester United vs Liverpool preview
Although last weekend’s goalless draw at Anfield may have suited Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team better as they stayed ahead of their rivals from Merseyside, United will see this clash as an opportunity to go one better.
Liverpool are at their lowest ebb in recent years, with their confidence drained after a run of four league games without a goal and missing a number of key players due to injury.
This extensive injury list is also set to be laid bare as Klopp rotates his side in the face of a hectic fixture list, with his weakened line-up unlikely to prove much of a match for an opponent with a deeper squad to choose from and fewer injury absentees.
Manchester United vs Liverpool predictions
With this in mind, a confident Manchester United team are surely worth backing at those 8/5 (2.60) odds to come out on top against a weakened Liverpool team that has looked a shadow of its usual self of late.
