Welcome to our Manchester Utd vs Liverpool preview, prediction and head to head analysis. Manchester United are in fifth place in the league. They started the season brightly with wins at home to Spurs and away at Aston Villa. Then things came a little unstuck at home to Newcastle with a bore draw, and then the wheels came off at Swansea where they lost. Liverpool’s season has followed a similar pattern. Starting with wins against Stoke City and Bournemouth, they crawled to a goalless draw at Arsenal and then lost at home to West Ham. Both teams will want to win this and get their campaigns back on track.

This match rarely ends in a draw. I am going for a Manchester United win because of their great record at this fixture, but I think a Liverpool victory has to be a second choice.
