Liverpool vs Manchester United 17.01.2021
The battle for the Premier League is becoming more interesting as the rounds go by, and it doesn’t get better than Liverpool taking on Manchester United for the top spot on the table.
While United have slowly but steadily worked their way to the top of the table on the back of a run of wins, Liverpool have conceded their top position to their arch-rivals, with a string of poor results. Form aside, this promises to be an exciting game, with all the trappings to go down as one of the greatest Premier League games ever.
United will be buoyed by their recent results going into this game at Anfield, But the host will be confident about their chances against the Red Devils, given that they are unbeaten in the last four league games against the visitors.
Although Liverpool have not been producing goals as they should in recent times, the occasion is well suited for a goal-fest. So, we will be backing both sides to score plus at least three total goals to boot.
