They will face a Man United team that has allowed the 10th most shots on target in the league (34) with the third highest percentage of shots on target allowed (34.7%), for FBref.

In the 12 games played in all competitions, Liverpool have only failed six or more shots on goal on five occasions. Two of them were against Norwich City and the other three occurred in the most even matches of the season: in Brentford (4), against Manchester City (3) and Atlético de Madrid (5).

Given how porous Man United have proven to be, just one shutout in 12 games, and especially without their best defensive signing Raphael Varane, Liverpool’s 5.5+ shots on target at -115 make for an interesting play.
