Liverpool v Manchester United

IT has been a long time since Manchester United sat top in January but their stay at the summit could be brief if they lose at Liverpool tomorrow.

The Red Devils last led the way at this stage in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season and they haven’t won the title since the great man retired in 2013.

But fans are daring to dream again after the 1-0 midweek win at Burnley saw the Red Devils jump above the champions.

United’s league form is impressive – undefeated since a 1-0 loss to Arsenal back in November – while Liverpool have hit a sticky patch of late.

They are without a league win in three and even allowed Aston Villa’s youth team to level in the FA Cup last week before eventually winning 4-1.

Having to field a makeshift defence is starting to affect Jurgen Klopp’s side and I fancy United’s attack to get some Anfield joy.

United look overpriced at 5/2 with McBookie, although I wouldn’t rule out a draw at 14/5.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are just 4/11 with William Hill to score but over 1.5 United goals is better at 17/10 (888Sport).

That bet stands a chance of coming up as they have scored two or more in seven of their last eight away games.

Mo Salah leads the anytime score market at 6/5 (Unibet) and netted the clincher when Liverpool won this fixture 2-0 at Anfield almost exactly a year ago. These games can boil over and with so much at stake over 4.5 cards appeals at evens with Bet365.

Wolves v West Brom

The Premier League’s weekend action kicks off today with a Midlands derby as West Brom head to Wolves.

Both sides are out of form so it’s not a game that promises plenty of thrills and I fancy under 2.5 goals at 9/13 with SBK.

There were nine yellows and two reds when Wolves last played a derby against Villa a few weeks ago.

This one could get a bit tasty as well and over 3.5 cards pays 8/11 at Bet365.

Leeds Utd v Brighton

It should be easier on the eye when Leeds host Brighton as both sides like to get the ball down and play out from the back.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men were embarrassed by Crawley in the FA Cup last weekend but should get back to winning ways here and are 23/20 at McBookie.

I can see there being a few goals and over 3.5 strikes pays 6/4 with the same firm.

Leicester City v Southampton

Tonight’s late game between Leicester and Southampton also has the potential to be a cracker.

Both teams like to press high and I’m expecting it to sparkle from the kick-off.

We have seen over 1.5 first-half goals in their last three meetings and that pays 7/4 at Paddy Power.

Manchester City v Crystal Palace

Manchester City look back to their best and I cashed in by backing them to beat Brighton to nil. The same bet against Crystal Palace tomorrow pays 3/4 with SportingIndex.

Super Singles

  • Leeds to win (23/20, McBookie)
  • Over 1.5 first-half goals Leicester v Southampton (7/4, Paddy Power)

Dirty Double

  • Over 3.5 cards at Wolves and over 4.5 cards at Liverpool (244/100, Bet365).

    There has been under 4.5 cards in the last 8 Liverpool v Man Utd games so I’m not confident in over 4.5 cards coming in.

      Turned out to be a pretty tepid game all round. Was expecting more blood and thunder. Bad weekend all round for me in England
