IT could be a magical Monday with one of English football’s greatest rivalries being played out.
And of course not only is it Liverpool v United it’s Jurgen Klopp v Jose Mourinho in English football for the first time.
Liverpool have looked the better of the two sides this season and with Man City’s perfect start just a memory they have the chance to go joint top with City and Arsenal.
United lie a further three points behind so for them it’s vital not to lose but they’ve been hit and miss this season.
Liverpool have lost the last four league meetings but should turn the tables and are a best 6-5 with William Hill and Ladbrokes. Due to expansion work at Anfield they’ve played only two home games – 4-1 and 5-1 wins against Leicester and Hull respectively.
Goals should be on the menu with Liverpool joint top scorers going into the weekend but yet to keep a clean sheet.
The only side United have kept out is Zorya in the Europa League – and they even conceded to Northampton in the League Cup.
Both to score is 7-10 with boylesports while over 2.5 goals is 17-20 at betfair. However, recent meetings haven’t been as high scoring as they were in the past.
Picking a Reds first scorer isn’t easy as the goals have been shared about but if he starts I’d consider Daniel Sturridge at 5-1 with bet365. For anytime scorer look no further than Philippe Coutinho at 2-1 with Ladbrokes.
Many will fancy United at 45-17 with Marathonbet and while a draw has a chance I’m banking on Klopp to rock the Kop.
