Liverpool FC vs Manchester United – Predicted Lineups and Betting Tips – 2019/20 Premier League
Fourteen points ahead of their nearest competitor with one game in hand, unbeaten in 22 league games, lowest number of goals conceded in the league – all of these stats might suggest that the team boasting of these will have their confidence higher than the Burj Khalifa.
However, that can’t be said for Liverpool FC. Though the Reds will be fairly confident going into any other match, the game on Sunday (January 19) might prove to be a tricky one. Liverpool will take on Manchester United at Anfield.
Though United only have a few more points than half of Liverpool’s total, there is a reason why the Reds’ camp might not be too complacent. Liverpool have brushed aside every single opponent this season, but their only little hiccup was against Manchester United. Had it not been for a rare lack of concentration which led to Adam Lallana’s last –gasp equalizer, Liverpool would have lost their only game of the season on 20th October, against the Red Devils.
Let us now have a look at the predicted lineups of both the sides:
