While United are unquestionably the most dominant side of the Premier League era, the post-Fergie years and particularly since Jurgen Klopp arrived at Liverpool has seen a shift back towards Liverpool, who dominated the 1970s and 1980s.

Since the start of the 2016/17 season, The Red Devils have won just one Premier League match in the North West Derby; a 2-1 home win under Jose Mourinho back in March 2018. Klopp’s side have come out on top four times including each of the last two matches. They are also the form side coming into this match having won ten of their last eleven league games and are the only Premier League side still undefeated at home this season.

Therefore, 101 Great Goals’ prediction for this match is Liverpool 3 – 1 Manchester United and is available at odds of 11/1.

Match preview

Liverpool welcome Manchester United to Anfield on Tuesday for the 60th North-West Derby in the Premier League. This match was originally pencilled into the calendar in mid-March but had to be postponed for a month due to Liverpool’s FA Cup commitments. Their victory over Nottingham Forest that weekend plus their 2-3 win at Wembley on Saturday against Manchester City means they are now in the FA Cup final for the first time since finishing as runners up under Kenny Dalglish back in 2012.

The Red Devils have the upper hand in the North West Derby, with 28 wins to Liverpool’s 17, from their 59 encounters in the Premier League. This advantage still holds across all competitions since the sides first faced off in 1894, when United were still called Newton Heath, with Liverpool on 79 wins to United’s 89 from 236 matches.

However recent years has undoubtedly seen Klopp’s Reds come out on top more often than not winning three of the last four league matches including each of the last two. The 0-5 pasting at Old Trafford back in October means Liverpool are chasing a first league double over United since the 2008/09 season.

Liverpool’s win the Champions League Quarter-Final against Benfica in midweek and the FA Cup Semi-Final on Saturday means Liverpool are still in the hunt for an unprecedented quadruple. Realistically, they know they will need to win all their remaining league games as well as hope for a favour from one of Manchester City’s opponents in one of the seven remaining games.

While the Reds are chasing four trophies, this season has become another transition season at Old Trafford. It started with so much promise, being tipped for the title by many pundits after adding Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane to the side that finished as runners up last season.

However, it quickly derailed after a run of one win in eight in the league and defeat in their first League Cup match. This saw Ralf Rangnick replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on an interim basis. More recent exits from the FA Cup and Champions League condemned the Red Devils to another trophyless season while a recent run of one win in five meant even Champions League football for next season looked in serious doubt.

Their 3-2 win on Saturday against Norwich, coupled with Spurs and Arsenal both losing on the same day, means the dire position now looks somewhat salvageable. However, they remain three points behind Spurs in fourth and on the same number of points as Arsenal, who have a game in hand.

This makes beating their biggest rival on Tuesday essential for the Red Devils. Liverpool are in real danger of equalling the United’s haul of 20 league titles. Being the side to derail their title hopes would be a plus point for the season, even if it means handing the title to their inner-city rivals. However, defeat here would leave them with a small mountain to climb with just five games remaining. Especially considering their run-in includes Arsenal, Brighton and Palace away as well as Brentford and Chelsea at home. There are no easy fixtures in that schedule.

Mohamed Salah Goalscorer – Salah (pictured above) took home the match ball from Old Trafford earlier this season after a hat trick as well as assisting the opening goal for Naby Keita. However, the Egyptian international is suffering a mini goal drought having failed to find the net in any of his last four appearances for the Reds. Despite this, he is the favourite to score the game’s opener on Tuesday 4/1. Or 1.9/1 to bag a goal at any time during the game against Manchester United.

Liverpool team news

Jurgen Klopp comes into this match with the luxury of a clean bill of health from his squad. However, there will certainly be changes to his side given the hectic schedule they have had since the season’s final international break. Their win on Saturday means this will continue right through to the end of the season with no more than a few days rest between every game right up until the final ball is kicked.

With this being the third match in six days for his side, we likely see players who started against both Benfica and Manchester City having a rest here. This means Ibrahima Konaté, Naby Keïta and Luis Díaz (pictured above) will likely drop to the bench here with Joel Matip, Jordan Henderson and Diogo Jota the most likely names to replace them. Although, Konstantinos Tsimikas, Curtis Jones and Roberto Firmino could also be rotated into the starting XI here with an eye on the Merseyside Derby to come at the weekend.

Manchester United team news

After the January transfer window in which Axel Tuanzebe, Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek and Amad Diallo all left the club with no new faces arriving, the squad looked a little light on quality. The Mason Greenwood suspension coupled with a spate of injuries left them looking very light at the weekend. Despite internet rumours to the contrary, it is confirmed that Mason Greenwood (pictured above) remains suspended by the club after audio surfaced online from his fiancé causing him to be arrested on suspicion of rape and assault. The club issued a statement at the time stating “Mason Greenwood will not return to training or play matches until further notice.”

Scott McTominay remains ruled out with a problem on the sole of his foot that has caused him the miss the previous two matches. Fred also missed Saturday’s match against Norwich with some muscular problems on his hip flexor and remains ruled out here. This leaves Nemanja Matic as the only recognised defensive midfielder available to United and at 33 is unable to complete back to back games. After being rested on and off over recent weeks, he is expected to start here in place of Jesse Lingard.

Luke Shaw is likely ruled out for all of United’s remaining games this season. Alex Telles will deputise for him at left-back. Edinson Cavani is also out until the end of this month with a calf problem. However, there may be some good news on Raphael Varane who faces a late fitness to return to the side here after missing the previous two games.
