Betting Tip: Liverpool +1.00 @ 10/11 with bet365

United v Liverpool fixtures are always highly entertaining, with the needle between these two clubs unrivalled across England.

These outfits are the most successful in English history and, although it would be wrong to say they have fallen on hard times, last season they were simply involved in a tussle to land the final Champions League spot.

Neither look capable of much more this season despite some big splurges of cash to secure the likes of Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin, Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino.

The latter is likely to operate in Philippe Coutinho’s position on Saturday, with his compatriot suspended for this crunch clash after an odd red card against West Ham.

Firmino looks an exciting prospect and will be joined by the returning Jordan Henderson for this game, with the midfielder having been left out of the England reckoning to get himself right with the foot injury.

At odds of 33/10 with BetVictor, Liverpool look simply too big to win a match against a side who have been underwhelming thus far, landing a couple of 1-0 wins before a goalless draw at home to Newcastle and then a 2-1 reverse at Swansea.

Both teams will have several players returning from international duty which disrupts the preparation for this match, although one should note how vibrant Liverpool looked in their last away game when drawing 0-0 at the Emirates.

Benteke clearly offers problems for opposition defences and we’re happy to go against a United side who have not strengthened their strikeforce since Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao left the club.
