MAGNAMINOUS Man United or liberated Liverpool – who will come on top in the clash of the titans at lunchtime?
The answer could be neither with a draw between the sides battling for second spot a likely outcome.
History is against a stalemate though. The last three league meetings have been draws but it's never reached four in a row.
Mourinho though is the master of stopping more flamboyant sides playing. United aren't great to watch but get the job done while Jurgen Klopp's side are true entertainers and have netted more away from home (34) than any side in the top-five leagues.
A draw pays 12-5 at McBookie and hopefully it will be a scoring one at 4-1 with Ladbrokes.
There's no doubt in my mind Liverpool are the better team and I'm willing to chance them draw no bet at evens with Marathonbet.
Mourinho's men may have one eye on Tuesday's Champions League return with Sevilla while Liverpool are safely into the hat for the last eight.
Mo Salah will have watched United's last-gasp win at Crystal Palace on Monday with interest. Chris Smalling had a nightmare and having netted in five Premier League games in a row the Egyptian is 24-13 at Unibet.
Elsewhere I like both to score at Everton v Brighton. Chris Hughton's visitors have boosted hopes of beating the drop with a seven-game unbeaten run including victory over Arsenal.
Everton haven't kept a clean sheet in 10 and that's most unlike Sam Allardyce sides – but they usually net so take both to score at a good price of 11-10 at William Hill.
Stats say there should be goals at Newcastle v Southampton and it's a serious six-pointer between two teams fighting the drop.
Southampton have won just one of their last 16 league matches and must be starting to believe they could be relegated.
If Newcastle win today they'll be in big trouble and I fancy the home men to edge it at 15-8 with Marathonbet.
The last four meetings in the north-east have gone over 2.5 goals with both scoring and a repeat pays 8-5 at boylesports. It was 2-2 when they met earlier in the season.
It's a tough Premier League and elsewhere I'd consider on-form Swansea not to lose at Huddersfield and Burnley to avoid defeat at West Ham.
West Brom are almost down and could suffer another loss at home to Leicester who are 13-8 with betfair.
In the Championship the form side are Fulham who head to Preston on a run of four wins in five and unbeaten in 14. They are 6-4 at bet365.
Cardiff are going for six wins in a row at home to a Birmingham side who started Garry Monk's reign with a 1-0 loss at home to Middlesbrough. Back the Welsh at 5-8 with 188Bet.
Middlesbrough should pick up another three points at home to Barnsley and are 8-13 at BetBright.
In League One back on-form Rotherham at home to Rochdale and take Wigan to sink Scunthorpe.
There's no stopping Derek Adams's Plymouth who are into the play-off places after six successive victories. They can make it seven at Fleetwood and are 15-8 at Coral.
