Manchester United vs Liverpool

, KO: 15:30 Apr 7, 2024, Old Trafford

MANCHESTER UNITED and Liverpool lock horns in a mouth-watering Premier League contest at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils ended their fierce rivals’ quest for an unprecedented quadruple by emerging victorious from a thrilling 4-3 FA Cup quarter-final last month.

Erik ten Hag’s team were unable to build on that success when being held to a 1-1 draw by Brentford last weekend before self-destructing in a chaotic 4-3 loss at Chelsea on Thursday night.

That body blow has left United sitting sixth in the table and they must now quickly lift themselves ahead of a visit from Liverpool this weekend.

The Reds survived scare to move back to the top of the Premier League with a 3-1 win over Sheffield United on Thursday night, in a game that brought up my Anfield Bet Builder.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will now look to exact revenge on their rivals and maintain their place at the summit by putting United to the sword at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Outright Betting

Manchester United are big outsiders at 17/5 (UniBet) while what would be a third draw inside 90 minutes between the pair this season can be backed at a best price of 16/5 (PaddyPower.).

Despite failing to defeat Manchester United in two attempts already this season, Liverpool are odds-on 7/10 favourites on Bet 365.

Betting Angles

There are no shortage of contenders and cases to be made in the player foul markets here but I’m going to opt for both Bruno Fernandes and Alexis Mac Allister to commit a foul at 4/5 on Bet 365.

United skipper Fernandes has been the Red Devils’ most prolific hatchet-man this season, having racked up 11 yellow cards across all competitions to date.

That record of ill-discipline has coincided with the Portuguese midfielder averaging 1.3 fouls per-game in the Premier League this season so far, being penalised at least once in a sizeable 24 of his 29 outings, including each of his last 10.

Moving into Liverpool’s midfield, I'm also prepared to back Alexis Mac Allister to get on the wrong side of the referee at least once during this dust-up.

The World Cup winner averages a shade under two fouls per 90 in the top flight this term and has been reprimanded at least once in seven of his last nine outings.

Given that both of the aforementioned players were booked when these two rivals met in the FA Cup just three weeks ago, backing the pair each to commit a foul stands out at 4/5 (Bet 365).

As for a match outcome angle, I’m also prepared to have small play on Liverpool to win 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 in the Correct Score Combination market at 3/1 on PaddyPower.

This bet would have yielded profit from seven of the Reds’ last nine Premier League victories and the same wager looks worthy of a small investment this weekend at a nice price.
