Manchester United v Liverpool Betting Guide

Sunday looks to be a cracking day of action in the Premier League and the game that gets the day underway is Liverpool taking on Manchester United at Old Trafford.

As we know, these two are up there with the most successful clubs in the world when it comes to trophies won and they have a bitter rivalry, so whenever they meet, millions around the world tune-in to watch.

United are going for the title this season, whereas Liverpool’s realistic aim is to finish in the top four, so they are both desperate for points here and it should be a scintillating 90 minutes of action at Anfield.

Brendan Rodgers’ side sit on maximum points in the Premier League after two games as they beat Stoke City and Aston Villa by a goal to nil.

This is by far and away the toughest encounter of the season for the Reds though and it is going to be interesting to see how they get on against one of the best teams in the top flight.

Rodgers has added plenty of quality to his squad during the summer, but it might be a surprise to those betting on this one to see that Liverpool are the slight favourites with the bookies at 13/8 to take the spoils with bet365.

They are often strong on home soil, but you feel as though these odds might be a little bit short from the bookmakers.

As for Manchester United, they look to be the value in this one at 19/10 with Coral and if at their best, they are sure to take the spoils.

David Moyes’ men followed up their win against Swansea City on the opening day with a draw at home to Chelsea on Monday evening and fans will be expecting a better performance here.

Wayne Rooney looks as though he is going to stay at Old Trafford and if he links up well with Robin van Persie on Sunday afternoon, the points could be heading to Manchester.

United don’t have the best record at Liverpool over the years, but with the talent in their squad, they should come here in good spirits and look to take the game to their opponents.

The first goal-scorer market is going to be a popular one with those placing bets here and you can see that the favourite with the bookies right now is Robin van Persie as he is at 19/4 with BetVictor to score first.

You can then get odds of 6/1 with Ladbrokes on Daniel Sturridge having the first say on this one and with the way he is playing right now, this could be a good bet.

For us though, this game is all about Wayne Rooney and we think odds of 16/1 over at Paddy Power on him scoring two goals are more is excellent value.

Bring on a cracking encounter from 1.30pm on Sunday.
