Back Liverpool to take all three points against Manchester United in the Premier League this week.

Liverpool will this week welcome Manchester United to Anfield in the Premier League, with both sides looking to take the bragging rights from this North-West derby.

A home win for Liverpool is backed at 6/5 with Bet365, while an away win is 13/5. A draw between the two teams is 12/5.


Predicted Liverpool Starting Lineup (4-3-3): Karius; Clyne, Matip, Lovren, Milner; Henderson, Emre Can, Philippe Coutinho; Firmino, Sturridge, Mane

Predicted Manchester United Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Bailly, Blind; Fellaini, Pogba; Martial, Mata, Rashford; Ibrahimovic

Liverpool head into this fixture on the back of four straight wins and they are unbeaten five Premier League games. Wins against Leicester City, Chelsea, Hull City and Swansea City see Jurgen Klopp’s men lying in fourth place from seven league games and very much in the mix for the title at this early stage of the season. The Merseyside club have had a variety of players finding success in front of goal this season due to their high tempo attacking game. Daniel Sturridge is favoured by bet365 to score and open his account for the season while team mate Roberto Firmino, who scored in their last outing against Swansea, is 7/4 to score.

Manchester United on the other hand have made a slow start to the season and currently lie in seventh place with 13 points. United have struggled for a consistent run of form with Jose Mourinho still yet to find his best starting 11. Impressive wins against the likes of Southampton and Champions Leicester City have been mixed with sluggish performances against Watford and Stoke City, where the Reds lost 3-1 and drew 1-1 against the latter. Zlatan Ibrahimović has been the focal point of United’s attack this season and is 6/4 to score while Anthony Martial, who scored most recently in the draw at Stoke, is 21/10 to find the back of the net. Young star Marcus Rashford is 2/1 to score.
