Match prediction from @JamrockRover

Liverpool won their last league game 6-0 away to Villa, but they lost the Capital One Cup final on penalties to City on Sunday. They have only won four of their 12 home games and have conceded more goals than they have scored at home. They have only won twice in their last seven league games and they failed to score in three of those games too.

Phillippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge could be the Liverpool players to have for fantasy managers if Liverpool are going to climb the table.

City lost their last league game at home to Spurs and they have a lot of ground to make up on the three teams ahead of them. They have only won five of their 13 away games while no other team has conceded less goals on the road, but only one other team in the top half of the table has scored less away goals. They lost their last two games to teams who were above them in the table and they still haven’t won two league games in a row since mid October.

Sergio Aguero and David Silva are still the City players most likely to perform for fantasy managers.

I think this will be another very close game and it will probably end with the spoils shared.

Prediction: 1-1


Manchester United: De Gea; Varela, Blind, Rojo, Fosu-Mensah; Schneiderlin, Herrera; Martial, Mata, Memphis; Rashford.

Subs: Romero, McNair, Darmian, Riley, Lingard, Rothwell, Weir.

Watford: Gomes (GK); Nyom, Britos, Prödl, Holebas; Capoue, Watson, Behrami; Abdi, Deeney (c); Ighalo

Subs: Pantilimon (GK), Cathcart, Paredes, Ake, Suarez, Anya, Amrabat.

8pm GMT, Old Trafford, Manchester.

Match prediction from @JamrockRover

United won 3-2 at home to Arsenal on Sunday despite a depleted team and kept their outside chances of a top four finish alive. They have only lost two of their 13 home games and no other team has conceded less goals at home. They have taken 14 points from their last eight games after only taking three from the previous six.

Marcus Rashford did very well on his Premier League debut for fantasy managers on Sunday and he could be worth a punt at a very good price.

Watford drew 0-0 at home to Bournemouth on Saturday and they’re finding goals hard to come by at the moment. They have taken almost as many points on their travels as they have at home and they have scored more goals on the road. They have managed eight points from their last five games, but they have failed to score in five of their last seven games.

With so few goals recently it’s hard to see any Watford players doing well for fantasy managers.

I think United might just have given themselves the boost they needed on Sunday and they will continue their good work in this game.

Prediction: 2-1
