This Sunday, January 17, the eyes of the football world will be on Liverpool v Manchester United and here at 10CRIC we’ve got you covered ahead of the biggest game in English football! For the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 United are top of the Premier League table in January, with reigning champions Liverpool just 3 points behind them. That means only one thing – this Sunday’s clash smells like a real title decider and it promises loads of fantastic pre-match and live betting action!
Liverpool are favourites to win…
The match odds are in favour of Liverpool who are priced at 1.90 to beat United and claim all 3 points. The Red Devils, meanwhile, are 3.50 to defeat Liverpool and extend their lead at the top of the table to 6 points. Jurgen Klopp’s men haven’t lost a league game at home against their greatest rivals since 2016 when Louis van Gaal was still in charge of United. What’s even more impressive is the fact that Liverpool haven’t lost a league clash at Anfield since April 2017! In other words – it’s been more than three-and-a-half years since Salah, Mane and Co. tasted defeat on home soil…
RECOMMENDED BET: Get 3.25 on Liverpool to win to zero.
… but United are the best away team
One of the reasons United are league leaders is their form away from home – they’ve won 7 and drawn 1 of their 8 league games on the road this season. Their fantastic away record means they can be very dangerous on the counter-attack and Liverpool’s aggressive style can provide them with the empty spaces they need up front. If you’re looking for bigger odds to bet with, how about 5.40 on United to beat Liverpool and both teams to score? Furthermore, United playmaker Bruno Fernandes has been outstanding throughout the campaign, having scored 11 goals already, so keep a close eye on him.
RECOMMENDED BET: Get 2.85 on Bruno Fernandes to score anytime.
So – who’s your money on: Liverpool or Man Utd? Get ready for the biggest battle in English football and don’t forget to join the live action once the game kicks off!
