You can’t beat the charged atmosphere at Anfield when Manchester United make the short trip to Merseyside, although most Liverpool supporters aren’t particularly looking forward to this clash right now, even if the bookies are anticipating a huge number of bets on the game.

While the match on Saturday 14 October presents an opportunity for the Reds to beat their fiercest rivals, there’s also the possibility that the Red Devils will nullify Liverpool and potentially nick a winner on the counter-attack or from a set piece.

This fixture was played at a similar time last season and Liverpool were bouncing after a flying start to the season which included a 4-1 win over champions Leicester and a 2-1 triumph away to Chelsea.

However, Jose Mourinho set his team up to defend manfully and it was a match of few chances which was reflected in the 0-0 scoreline which could have been worse for the home side if Zlatan Ibrahimovic had managed to profit from a late opportunity.

Mourinho will regard this match as one not to lose, with United having amassed a healthy nineteen points from their opening seven matches. This keeps them up to speed with a Manchester City side who also have a serious winning habit right now.

The absence of Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini means that Ander Herrera is likely to partner Nemanja Matic in the engine room once again, with Ashley Young likely to feature after a couple of impressive performances back in the United team.

This match might take a familiar pattern, with Liverpool likely to see plenty of the ball although their recent 1-1 draw at Newcastle was indicative of the way that they have been frustrated several times this term.

This is not a team who are clinical at the moment and the 4-0 win over Arsenal earlier this season was more down to the Gunners playing into the hands of their opponents than any real ingenuity when it came to carving open a tight defence.

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah’s pace is only relevant if given space in behind a defence, while Philippe Coutinho will be targeted considering he’s capable of the kind of trickery to unlock the tightest defence.

We’re going for a low-goal haul and it’s clearly worth a dabble on No Goalscorer too, with Mourinho in no mood for expansive football.
