Sunday afternoon sees two of England’s fiercest rivals go head-to-head in what is sure to be an emotionally charged hour and a half.
England’s most successful club teams have had their fair share of headlines for the wrong reasons in recent years after some intense battles. However, following a big week for Liverpool Football Club with the Hillsborough case finally being won, both Manager’s and teams are urging their players and fans to ensure football is the only matter up for discussion come 3.30pm on Sunday.

When the book opened on this match last week, United were firm favourites after a stuttering start to the season by Liverpool.
Although, following the result in the high court last week, there has been money for the home side to take the 3 points with the added incentive of giving their fans more joy. Now there’s not a lot in it as the Red Devils are just slight favourites at 13/8 for an away win, with Liverpool 17/10 and the draw is priced up at 23/10, all with Bet365.
Liverpool’s goal-shy first team were shown up on Thursday night as a second-string side smashed 5 past Young Boys in the Europa League, which is one more goal than they’ve managed all season! However a look back at the recent match-ups between these two sides makes very nice reading indeed for the neutrals, as goals haven’t been at a premium.
Six of the last 7 meetings between these two sides has seen both teams on the score sheet, including each of the last 4. The odds for BTTS are a very generous 8/11 in my opinion, although if anyone fancies opposing the BTTS it’s Even money for No on the BTTS which means either team not to score.
Only Liverpool v Everton matches have seen more red cards(20) than Liverpool v Manchester United (13) in Premier League history.
In the corresponding fixture last term, Hernandez rescued a point for United after Gerrard opened the scoring for the hosts. The draw looks well backed here again today, and especially a repeat of the 1-1 scoreline which pays just 5/1, making it the Bookies’ favourite outcome.
