Liverpool victory

Liverpool were sensational in the win over Manchester United. Even though most of the players who featured in this victory are unlikely to play in the game against Preston, the ripple effect might be felt throughout the squad. It is very likely that the Reds will continue on the momentum path that has seen them pick up four wins in the last five matches. Despite Preston having home advantage, this game should end up as a comfortable win for the Reds.

Total goals over 3.5

Liverpool have been producing masterclass comes to attacking football over the last few weeks. Even the international break has not done enough to stop the momentum, as Liverpool have been able to get 20 goals in the last five matches. Even though squad rotation is likely to happen, Liverpool will have a lot of strength while Preston have scored in all but one of the home matches this season.

Goals from both teams – no

Even though Liverpool have been producing wonderful attacking display, the defence has been far from perfect. However, the vast difference in quality compared to Preston should be able to help see them through to a clean sheet.
