Another Mourinho Masterclass To Overshadow Liverpool v Manchester United

The weekend's big live Premier League game comes from Anfield on Saturday lunchtime as Liverpool take on Manchester United and it is fair to say that this is the one game of the season that neither side can afford to lose as bragging right from this age-old rivalry are up for grabs...

  • Manchester United failed to win away at any of the top-eight last season - Drew Four, Lost Three
  • United have scored 10 goals in the final 15 minute of games this season

Tips Man Utd to win second half    Best Bet @ 2 / 1  
Under 2.5 goals @ 1 / 1  

Who Wins?

The bookmakers are struggling to pick a favourite on Merseyside as both the Liverpool win and United win are each priced 7/4, while the draw can be backed at 9/4 (Betfred).

Indeed, each of the last three Liverpool v Man Utd fixtures have ended 1-1, 0-0 and 1-1 respectively and we wonder if another low scoring stalemate might be the way to go.

Obviously, United are much-improved this season, winning six of their seven matches during an unbeaten start to the campaign, but it is worth noting that all of the teams they have played are currently residing in the bottom-half of the table.

As for Liverpool, they have won three, drawn three and lost one - a 5-0 hammering at the hands of Manchester City.

12/5 9/4 23/10 23/10 23/10 12/5 5/2

Low Scoring

The City result was skewed by Sadio Mane's sending off and we prefer to focus on the fact that Jurgen Klopp's men went unbeaten against top-eight opposition last season (won seven, drew seven) and ten of those went under 2.5 goals.

Liverpool obviously have defensive deficiencies but they are capable of shoring up for these big games and the past five meetings between Liverpool and United have all involved two goals or less, with under 2.5 goals currently an even-money shout with Paddy Power.

United have kept six clean sheets this term but this is their first big test of the campaign after failing to win away at any of the top-eight teams in the Premier League last season (drew four, lost three), with five of those going under 2.5 goals.

Jose Mourinho tends to stifle the life out of the opposition in these games but his side do appear to have a bit more about them so far this season and they are starting to resemble the United of old as they have scored ten goals in the final fifteen minutes of games in the mould of Sir Alex Ferguson's teams.

United, who have scored 14 of their 21 goals in the second-half of matches, are 2/1 to win the second-half (Betway) and Romelu Lukaku could be the man to break the deadlock, with Paddy Power making him 10/3 favourite to score first.
