The Premier League title race must be a Manchester United fan’s worst nightmare with Liverpool and Manchester City scrapping it out for the right to declare themselves the Premier League top dogs.
But as long as they salvage a spot in next season’s Champions League from this car crash of a campaign then they might not care quite as much about the destination of the top-flight title.
NEW TO PADDY POWER?
Liverpool can climb to the top of the table if they beat United in tonight’s Premier League clash at Anfield, which is scheduled to kick off at 8pm.
Jurgen Klopp’s scintillating side cruised to a 5-0 victory in the reverse fixture last October, the lowest point of United’s season (so far). Despite some questionable performances and mixed form, the Red Devils are still in contention for fourth spot (though they did try their best to muck it up against basement dwellers Norwich at the weekend) and will join Tottenham on 57 points if they wing their way to victory.
Why was Liverpool v Man Utd rescheduled?
Liverpool were due to host Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday, March 20 but the fixture had to be postponed due to the Reds playing their FA Cup quarter-final tie against Nottingham Forest that weekend.
Tuesday, April 19 was one of the few dates on the calendar that the match could be rearranged for due to the fact Liverpool continue to be involved in the Champions League.
Liverpool v Man Utd odds
Liverpool haven’t lost in the Premier League since December 28 so it’s hardly a shock that Paddy’s traders have priced Jurgen Klopp’s team as the hot favourites to claim all three points.
The Reds drew with Manchester City in their last Premier League match – which feels like a lifetime ago as they’ve since reached the Champions League last four and beat their title rivals in the FA Cup semi-finals – and you can find our price for a stalemate with Manchester United on the widget below.
Ralf Rangnick’s side bounced back to winning ways against Norwich on Saturday thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick but this trip to Anfield represents a sterner challenge. You can back the visitors to pick up a famous win at a big price.
Liverpool v Man Utd tips
Our tipster Shane O’Brien has looked into his crystal ball and provided us with a four-fold Bet Builder for Liverpool v Man Utd that clocks in at approximately 28/1. Woof!
A tasty leg that adds to plenty of meat to the bones of our man’s selection is Diogo Jota to Score First. The Portuguese hotshot has scored in Liverpool’s last two outings against the Red Devils, drawing them level in an eventual 4-2 victory last season before putting them 2-0 ahead in the rout this season.
He has been one of Liverpool’s standout performers during this campaign, scoring 21 goals in all competitions and 15 in the league. Of those 15 league goals, 10 have come as Liverpool’s first goal, while 14 of his 21 goals in all competitions have gotten the Reds off the mark.
Liverpool legend Phil Thompson loved a clash with Manchester United back in his heyday but he’s been able to do the next best thing for this one – giving us his best bets! He may be going through a bit of a goal drought but Thommo has Mohamed Salah to Score Anytime as one of his two best bets for the big clash.
