3 Way – Manchester United 7/2

Separated by 22 points and 5 league positions. Manchester United went into this match with nothing to lose. They sit 6th in the league and mathematically will not move if they win this match. However, if they were to lose, they would be vulnerable to dropping down the league.

United have a few advantages over Liverpool ahead of Sunday’s clash, including the fact that they do not have a big game coming up in Europe mid-week. They can play their best team without having to rest players for European competition. Without European football United have grown in confidence in 2024 and have started to gel as a team. We have seen players like Antony who have been accused of falling short of expectations come to life. Alejandro Garnacho has also grown in stature and Harry Maguire looks like a player reborn in 2024. 

Although the results are going their way, 3 wins in their last 7 matches. United have historically dominated this fixture. They have 34 wins, 15 draws and 24 losses against Liverpool FC. United has not lost to Liverpool at old Trafford since October of 2021.

Both these teams have been prolific in the league, scoring a goal in each of their last 10 matches. Since 1994 this match has seen 195 goals scored, 99 scored by Liverpool and 96 scored by Manchester United. Whichever way the result goes, there will be goals scored.  

Anytime Goal scorer – Mohammed Salah 89/100

Liverpool’s main man when it comes to goals, Mo Salah has been as prolific as he has been in previous seasons. He has netted 16 goals in 24 matches and assisted 9 goals in that time. That is 25 goal contributions in the premier league. The last time these two teams met was in the FA Cup. Mo Salah was one of the names on the score sheet. 

Anytime Goal scorer – Bruno Fernandes 22/5

Bruno Fernandes has taken the role of provider this season, registering the most assists of any player in a United shirt this season. He has also found the back of the net a few times this season with 5 goals scored in 29 appearances. He is a goal threat every time he wears a United jersey, he is worth adding as part of your goals scorers.  

 

Anytime Goal scorer – Rasmus Hojlund 43/20

Hojlund seems to have hit a grey patch after having an outstanding run in the month of February 2024. He scored 5 goals and provided a single assist in the month of February as he extended the rich grain of form, we saw him come in in January. The month of March saw a steep decline in fortunes with the Hojlund failing to find the back of the net both for Manchester United and Denmark. Since returning from international duty has not been amongst the goal scorers in their last two matches and will hope, he can score again in the red derby this weekend.
