Liverpool will play against Manchester United in Premier League and we got a Football forecast today for the match. The game is on Sunday, January 17 from 16:30 UK at Anfield.
Liverpool is in 2nd place with 33 points after 17 matches in Premier League. If we were told before the beginning of the season that the Reds will win only 2 points in their matches against West Brom, Newcastle, and Southampton, we will tell you that you are crazy. However, this happened and the last clash was a loss against Southampton. Also, Liverpool failed to score in their last 2 games. Something needs to change for the team of Jurgen Klopp if he wants his team to defend his trophy. Very surprisingly the problems of the Reds lately came not from their defense but from their offensive players.
Manchester United is in first place in Premier League with 36 points after 17 games. Yes, after 2013 the Red Devils are again in first place on the table in January and that season, they ended up winning the title. In their last 6 matches Man. United won 16 points and is in a series of 3 victories in a row. Their last victory was against Burnley where Paul Pogba was the hero with his goal in the second half. Many people still don’t see the club as the main title contender this season but we can’t ignore them since they are unbeaten since the first day of November. Liverpool is the favorite in the upcoming match according to betting sites.
The Reds failed to win their last game at Anfield against West Brom but before that, they won all of them this season. However, they will face the best away team in the league and so far, this season Manchester United won all of their away matches besides 2:2 against Leicester. I will not bet on the winner here and I think that both teams will be very cautious so will not have many goals. Football forecast today: Under 2.5 goals
