Big Match Preview – Liverpool v Manu


Fergie has described the Liverpool versus Manchester United game as the fixture he looks for first when the lists are published in June. The fact that he rates the head to head so highly is obviously predicated against the fact that in the early days Liverpool were the target. As results have proven they have long since been over take.


The return of King Kenny last year has added spice to the occasion and this is a match that he will be desperate to win. Liverpool have made a fair start to the season and currently occupy 5th place in the table six points behind the unbeaten United. In their three homes games they have only dropped a point in the opening day clash against Sunderland. They also have a surprisingly good record against United. Of the last seven games an Anfield Liverpool have won four and lost two so the 2/1 about the home side is value on recent form.


United started the season like a theatre on fire and looked a class apart but the last tow games have been less encouraging and they will need to return to the September form to win today against a side who will probably start with Gerrard and have Suarez in top goal scoring form. The Uruguayan maestro has bagged eight goals in his last twelve games.


The atmosphere could take over today and that throws form out of the window so the bet has to be Liverpool at 2/1, both teams to score at around the 4/6 mark and Suarez must be included in any goalscorer bets.


Daily Sport recommended bet – Liverpool at 2/1
