Manchester United

The Red Devils have been quite outstanding away from home this season, and they have managed to win seven of their last eight outings on their travels.

They will be hoping to pull further clear at the top of the table with a win over Liverpool, and they will certainly fancy their chances against a stuttering Liverpool side.

Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones are the only injury worries for the away side.

Possible Manchester United Line-ups:

David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Scott McTominay, Fred, Paul Pogba; Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford.

Betting Odds


Both teams are capable of picking up a win here, and they will be desperate to secure all three points. Liverpool are formidable at home, and Manchester United have been outstanding away from home. 

They are likely to cancel each other out this weekend.
