Manchester United v Liverpool Betting Preview

| January 10, 2013 | Reply

Liverpool make the journey to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon to take on Manchester United in a fixture that is sure to be watched all over the world. In terms of trophies, these two are the biggest clubs in England and although it has been a few years since Liverpool last challenged for the Premier League title, this is still the game that both clubs are desperate to win.

When the fixture list comes out, both sets of fans look to see when this game is taking place and it is sure to be an enthralling 90 minutes of competitive action.

Of course as they are on home soil and currently sit seven points clear at the top of the table, United are the big favourites for this one and you can back them at 5/6 with Paddy Power to claim all three points.

The Red Devils have played some superb football so far this season and should have a bit too much quality for their opponents on Sunday. However, we have seen them make it hard work for themselves a number of times this campaign and Sir Alex Ferguson will be doing all he can to stop his men going a goal down yet again.

As for Liverpool, they have either been red hot or ice cold for the majority of the season. When at their best, they can be one of the best teams in the league with the likes of Luis Suarez and Steve Gerrard pulling the strings.

But, they are not at their best enough and they have had the tendency to go missing in a game after a decent result. The Reds come into this one on the back of two 3-0 wins in the Premier League, so should have a bit of confidence and look to cause United a few problems.

If you fancy Liverpool to cause a bit of an upset here, their chances of a victory are rated at 7/2 with Stan James.

Betting on the first goal-scorer is always popular for these big encounters and there is no surprise that two men lead the way at the moment – Robin van Persie and Luis Suarez.

Van Persie is the leading scorer in the top flight right now with 16 goals and he is being offered at 7/2 with Coral to break the deadlock.

As for 15-goal Suarez, he is at 13/2 with BWIN, which might prove to be good value for the Uruguayan.

For bets on this big game though, we think you should head into the correct score market and back Manchester United to win 3-1, which is available at 15/1 with 188bet.

We are all set for a fiery encounter between these two bitter rivals and it is 90 minutes that you will not want to take your eyes off.
