Liverpool's dream of repeating as Premier League champion and tying Manchester United for most titles in history (20) has been over for a while, but it still has a chance for a top-four finish.

Liverpool has four matches remaining on its schedule, including one against host Manchester United on Thursday. Following their showdown with the second-place Red Devils, the Reds wrap up the season against lesser clubs in West Brom (19th place), Burnley (15th) and Crystal Palace (13th).

Top predictions for Manchester United vs. Liverpool
Green is leaning over 2.5 goals in Thursday's matchup between Liverpool and Manchester United. Only five Premier League teams have recorded more tallies this season than the Reds, who have scored 57 in 34 matches. Mohamed Salah is second in the league with 20 goals, including five in his last eight games across all competitions, while Sadio Mane ranks second on the team with nine in Premier League play. The 29-year-old from Senegal has scored in two of his last three contests following a nine-game drought.
Prior to Tuesday's 2-1 loss against Leicester City, the Red Devils had produced at least two goals in eight of nine games across all competitions. Bruno Fernandes leads Manchester United with 17 Premier League tallies and has scored three times in his last four overall matches while Edinson Cavani has recorded eight goals in as many contests. Mason Greenwood has tallied in five of his last six league games, which has helped Green in his decision to lean toward the over on Thursday.
