Liverpool and Manchester United both began the International Champions Cup with positive results but the Merseysiders look in slightly better shape ahead of this clash.
Jurgen Klopp’s side snatched a stoppage-time win over Manchester City, while Jose Mourinho’s men edged out AC Milan on penalties.
We just feel the Reds looked further forward in their pre-season preparations and they get the nod at 5/4 in our first Man Utd vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
Alexis Sanchez’s 12th-minute strike was quickly cancelled out by Suso before United prevailed 9-8 in a penalty shoot-out against Milan in Carson City.
Reserve goalkeeper Joel Pereira was delighted to play his part with several saves from spot-kicks.
He told MUTV: “It feels amazing, as a goalkeeper when it’s a penalty shoot-out it depends on you.
“I’ve been the third goalkeeper for a year now and I always stay after training doing finishing with the boys.
“I like to do some bets with them, do some penalty shoot-outs and bet a shirt or dinner or something. We practice that a lot and it worked pretty well for me here.”
However, as well as being without a number of stars who featured in the latter stages of the World Cup, United have also now lost the services of Nemanja Matic, Anthony Martial and Antonio Valencia.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool went behind to a 57th-minute Leroy Sane goal against Premier League champions City in New Jersey but rallied to secure a 2-1 success.
Mohamed Salah equalised six minutes later and then Sadio Mane struck with an injury-time penalty after Dominic Solanke was fouled.
Klopp reflected on “a lot of good moments which we can use and a lot of bad moments we can work on” following that victory.
However, the fact that he introduced Salah and Mane off the bench after their return from World Cup duty suggests the German is keen to make an impact in this tournament.
Salah suffered a shoulder injury before Russia 2018, but Klopp commented: “I was not concerned about it, otherwise he wouldn’t have played.
“He had a big impact together with Sadio and Dom (Solanke), and the midfield with Marko (Grujic), Pedro (Chirivella) and Ben (Woodburn) played fantastic.”
Let’s round off our Man Utd vs Liverpool betting tips by taking 35/4 for Klopp’s side to oblige 2-1 again in Ann Arbor this weekend.
