Planning a bet on Liverpool vs Man Utd on Sunday? Midnite Rundown takes a look at the betting odds ahead of arguably the biggest match of the Premier League season so far...
Not since the glory days of Sir Alex Ferguson's reign have Manchester United led the Premier League table in January but, sure enough, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's current team have hit the front and their timing could not be more perfect.
Bet now: Latest Liverpool vs Man Utd odds
A 1-0 victory over Burnley on Tuesday night sent United three points clear of arch rivals Liverpool, just in time for the first league meeting between the two teams in almost a year.
Jurgen Klopp's team were imperious on their way to the Premier League title last season - the Reds' first in 30 years - but some fragility has been evident in the first half of the 2020/21 campaign, not helped of course by injuries to key personnel, Virgil van Djik in particular.
Liverpool are without a win in their last three Premier League matches, with a 1-0 defeat by Southampton following disappointing draws with Newcastle and West Brom. That said, their most recent league win was the emphatic 7-0 crushing of Crystal Palace.
United, meanwhile, have not lost a league match since November 1 and have won seven of eight fixtures on the road, drawing once.
At Anfield, Liverpool are an immovable force. Not since the 2-1 defeat by Crystal Palace in April 2017 have the Reds been beaten on home soil and it is little surprise then that Klopp's team are favourites to take three points from United and resume top spot.
We make Liverpool 1.98 to win the match, meaning a winning £10 bet on the hosts would return £19.80.
United have not won in the league against Liverpool since March 2018 and have to look back to January 2016 for their last Premier League victory at Anfield.
So, for all the improvements made by Solskjaer's team this season, it's perhaps unsurprising you can get 3.50 on an away win. A winning £10 bet on United would return £35.
Six of the past nine league meetings between the sides have ended level and we price the draw at 3.70 this time around.
In the draw no bet market, Liverpool are 1.48 and United are 2.62. In the draw no bet market, your stake is returned if the match ends in a draw.
In five of the past nine league fixtures between Liverpool and United, both teams have at least scored and, if you fancy attack to be on top on Sunday, you can get 1.60 on both teams to score. Both teams failing to score is priced at 2.22.
