Premier League preview: Sunday’s action including Man Utd vs Liverpool

Man Utd vs Liverpool

After a poor display against Brentford, Man Utd looked like they might be capable of showing something of a response against Chelsea midweek – and still ended up losing 4-3 to the west London side, thanks to Cole Palmer.

With that in mind, it seems unlikely that Erik ten Hag’s side can derail Liverpool’s title challenge. Yet last month the Red Devils did lay down a beating on Klopp’s side, knocking them out of the FA Cup in a 4-3 thriller at Old Trafford.

Could more of the same possibly be in store on Sunday? There was a moment of doubt for Liverpool in the midweek game against Sheffield United, jarringly, when the Blades levelled the score at 1-1 – but the Reds fought back to win 3-1 in the end.

United are clearly capable of rousing themselves for big games on occasion. But they’ve also been wholly outclassed by Liverpool at Old Trafford in recent years; like the 5-0 defeat in October 2021.

This one probably won’t be so one-sided. Still, Liverpool have won six of their last seven away games, with only Arsenal beating them. The Reds also held Man City to a draw at the Etihad.

With so much at stake, you’d think Klopp’s side should be able to find a way to conquer a team that have lost at home to the likes of Fulham and Bournemouth this season.

Mo Salah looked unhappy to be subbed against the Blades, but the Egyptian King can make his mark on Sunday. Salah loves to score in United’s backyard, with five goals in his last three visits to Old Trafford. Back Liverpool to win and Salah to score in a double at 31/20.

Sheffield United vs Chelsea

Even with Sheffield United having shown some kind of resistance in recent weeks, the Blues shouldn’t have too much trouble imposing themselves on Chris Wilder’s side.

For all Chelsea’s foibles, the Blues are unbeaten in their last six league games, and here they’re taking on a side that often leak goals.

Over 3.5 goals at evens looks a decent shout; it’s come off in 9 of the Blades’ last 10 league outings.

Otherwise, while not every Chelsea player is exactly brimming with reliability, Cole Palmer has established himself as the poster boy for the Todd Boehly era.

You might be sick of us putting up Palmer to score – but with seven goals in his last four games we can hardly ignore him. Here, he’s evens to score at any time.

For a slightly different approach, Palmer is also 17/4 to score at least two goals. In the last week, he’s scored a hat-trick against Man Utd and a brace against Burnley. Against the Blades, Palmer scoring more than once is definitely doable…

Tottenham vs Nottingham Forest

Tottenham are generally pretty tough to beat at home; Forest have won one of their last six away matches.

Even with Nuno presumably highly motivated to do well against the club that sacked him off after less than four months, his side will need to show the same will to win they demonstrated against Fulham earlier this week.

Forest won 3-1 against the Cottagers, a tad unexpectedly, given prior to that the side had only scored twice in their last four games.

But only once this season have Forest been able to string a pair of back-to-back wins together. Can they buck that trend and put in another strong showing in north London?

Tottenham are susceptible to the odd rick themselves. Still, you’d expect them to get the job done eventually. Combine Spurs to win and BTTS in a double at 29/20.
