Liverpool v Manchester United Odds: Draw Favoured Outcome for Anfield Clash

Click here for the latest odds and betting preview for the Liverpool v Man Utd league match on Saturday 15th October 2011.

Unmissable is how one soccer pundit has described this game, which for neutral soccer fans is without question the game of the weekend. Liverpool v Manchester United always has a special ‘ring’ about it, but King Kenny v Sir Alex even more so. The two managers have a long and not always savoury history and will have their teams extremely well motivated to win the game which takes place at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. The outcome of course is anyone’s guess, but the Bookmakers are just about leaning towards a United win with Paddy Power for instance offering 6/4 about them taking the three points, with Liverpool at 15/8 and the draw 9/4,

Liverpool of course know that they are not going to win the Premier League this season, but the last thing they want is for the title to go back to Old Trafford. This means that United can expect a game of high intensity, passionate to the extreme, uncompromising and potentially damaging to their title hopes. Liverpool on the other hand will be facing a team equal in all emotional departments but one that needs the points more, which could be the deciding factor.

Both teams come into the match on the back of defeats, Liverpool’s revival under Dalglish hit a ‘brick wall’ last week when they were surprisingly beaten by struggling West Ham while United who were the best team for long periods suffered their second defeat of the season this time against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Dalglish will be celebrating his 6oth birthday this week and there would be no better present for him than the three points that could be earned by victory on Sunday.

Whilst United have won the last two Premier League fixtures, as well as an FA Cup tie between the two clubs, it has been Liverpool who have won this particular fixture at Anfield for the last two seasons, they beat the ‘Red Devils’ 2-0 last season and 2-1 the season before. The games are usually close and all league encounters barring one played in the last ten years have seen goals. In fact the last six games between the two teams have produced 21 goals, which makes the 6/5 odds, put up by Paddy Power, against there being more than 2.5 goals a reasonable bet.

Favourite in the market to score the first goal of the game in fact is Wayne Rooney, who scored the opener against Chelsea with a superb strike the other night, bringing his tally to seven for the season in the league; the England star is an 11/2 odds against option with Paddy Power. His strike partner, Dimitar Berbatov should also be strongly considered as it was he who scored all three goals in United’s 3-2 league win over Liverpool earlier this season; the Bulgarian striker has odds of 6/1. The same Bookmakers make Liverpool’s Luis Suarez an 11/2 shot and have record breaking signing, Andy Carroll at 13/2 to beat Rooney in scoring the first goal, however, despite speculation to the contrary, it is unlikely that the 22 year old will play; certainly not the full game anyway. Punters therefore might want to consider either Joe Cole who netted the only goal in Chelsea’s win over United last season at Old Trafford, who has odds of 12/1 or the extremely tempting odds of 9/1 about Steven Gerrard who scored both goals for the ‘Reds’ in the 2-3 league defeat mentioned above.

On the injury front, United should have Rio Ferdinand back following his calf muscle strain, while Liverpool will be without Kelly, Aurelio, Agger and Shelvey whose absence’s should not affect their overall team make up. Both teams therefore will be more or less at full strength for the match.

Clearly this game could go either way, but as much as they would both want to win, the draw looks the safest and best betting option here. A 1-1 outcome would seem to make sense but a 2-2 result could not be ruled out if past results are taken into consideration.
