Liverpool have begun to show signs of resurgence in the last few weeks barring their encounter against Real Madrid. Virgil van Dijk’s return did help them achieve defensive solidity.

Manchester United are on a tremendous run of form and confidence, beating Barcelona in the Europa League and winning the Carabao Cup in a space of three days. Furthermore, the fact that they haven’t beaten Liverpool at Anfield since 2016 weighs heavily on them. We think that will change in this game!

BestofBets think this one will be a 1-2 win for Manchester United.
