Ten points separate Liverpool and Manchester United in the table but the bookies believe there’s an even bigger gulf in class on the pitch.
The Red Devils were 9/5 ahead of kick-off in their last visit to Liverpool but came away humiliated, on the end a 7-0 mauling. That made it four wins in five for Jurgen Klopp’s men in this fixture and just one goal for United in eight visits to Anfield in all competitions.
Even more concerning for Erik ten Hag is that Liverpool have scored a whopping 21 goals in the last five meetings between the sides and they’re purring once more at the top of Premier League.
A 7-0 repeat, for the optimistic Reds fans, os an 80/1 shot. That might be a touch ambitious but plenty among the home support will be on Liverpool to score four against United for a fifth time in six matches at 9/4. They tend not to take their foot off the gas in this fixture and an early goal would set alarm bells ringing for the Old Trafford side.
Mo Salah has scored in each of his last six appearance against United and is 5/6 to make it seven. He averages a goal a game in this fixture and is in the frame to finish Premier League top scorer once again with 11 goals so far.
Two brilliant home wins over title hopefuls Arsenal and Manchester City have propelled Aston Villa in to third in the table but it’ll all count for nothing if they can’t win at Brentford this afternoon.
Whilst their home form has been immaculate they’ve been far less impressive on the road, winning just three of eight. At 6/5 to win it’ll be interesting to see how Villa cope with the weight of expectation. Confidence must be sky-high however and against a Brentford side that’s lost four in five the price could’ve been a point or two shorter so is worth taking on.
With Manchester City dropping another two points yesterday, Arsenal have the chance to open up a four point gap on the champions.
The Gunners, who are unbeaten at home, welcome Brighton to the Emirates in what should be an entertaining game.
Over 2.5 goals is skinny at 4/7 but has landed in the last four meetings. Add in BTTS and 1/1 looks quite attractive.
In Scotland, Rangers and Aberdeen contest the first piece of silverware of the season.
The Gers are 1/5 to lift the trophy and 2/5 to do so inside 90 minutes but Aberdeen have had their number this season, winning at Ibrox and being a 94th minute penalty away from doing the double over them.
Things could be a bit different on the big pitch at Hampden where the Glasgow giants will have the lions share of supporters.
This is a fixture that tends to throw up yellows an red cards. The card line is set at even for Over 5.5 on the Asian Handicap and it’s 9/4 for a red to be shown.
Two players that could find their way in to Don Robertson’s notebook are Richard Jensen, who has been carded in both meetings so far this season, and Todd Cantwell, if available, who’s no stranger to yellow this season. it’s 9/2 for both to be booked.
