Many of the best free football tips sites now have Liverpool above Manchester United as contenders for the Premier League title. That was not the case at the start of the season as with Jose Mourinho joining the Red Devils and them spending vast sums of money during the summer transfer market, many expected better performances. Liverpool, however, have surprised many and have kicked on from last season with some outstanding performances. They currently sit only two points behind leader Manchester City and if they can keep up their high energy tactics throughout the season, they are in with a good chance of being crowned champions.
Man U under new manager Jose Mourinho got off to a great start winning their first two games against Southampton and Hull. They were then beaten by their local rivals and today’s football tips favorites to win the league, Manchester City. Under Sir Alex Ferguson you could almost guarantee that they would bounce back in their following game after a loss but even with the special one in charge, they were unable to do so. They were thrashed 3 – 1 by Watford and the team looked disjointed with Wayne Rooney playing in midfield. The Red Devils captain was dropped for the following matched against last season champions Leicester City and the team put in their best performance of the season winning 4 – 1. Things seemed to be back on track but after drawing with Stoke at the weekend it looks like Mourinho has a long way to go before making them into genuine title contenders.
With Liverpool playing at home they are the favorites to win with the best free football tips sites. Klopp has finally had his chance to put his stamp on the squad and has the advantage over Mourinho and Guardiola due to him having half a season in charge before this one kicked off. The German manager has improved the fitness of the players so that they can carry out his high-pressure intensity tactics. The only problem with playing this way is that fatigue can affect the players and it is one reason the team struggled to be consistent week in week out. One thing is for sure though that they have definitely improved from the last campaign and many are backing them to win the title this time around.
Liverpool F.C Vs Manchester United Prediction
My today’s football tips are for Liverpool to beat Manchester United. They are at home and are in form winning their last four matches in the league. Man U are still in a transitional period which seems to be lasting years since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. If the Red Devils are going to mount a title challenge this season, they are going to have to go on an unbeaten run starting at Anfield. If they lose they are not going to be competing for the Premiership Crown but a top four finish which is simply not good enough for a team which has invested over 500 million pounds over the last few seasons on players.
