Liverpool v Manchester United Betting Special: Mata to make his mark at Anfield

While the Reds have been in prolific form so far this season, Al Hain-Cole thinks they may be undone at the other end of the pitch by a familiar foe againt Mourinho's men

Boasting the best goals-to-games ratio in the Premier League, Liverpool will be hoping to maintain their prolific form when they welcome rivals Manchester United to Anfield on Monday.

Having hit the back of the net in four previous meetings with the Red Devils, Daniel Sturridge is Paddy Power’s 5/1 (6.00) favourite to open the scoring, and available at 7/5 (2.40) anytime odds to score a first league goal since April.

However, the England man seems to have fallen behind Roberto Firmino in the pecking order of late, with the Brazil international priced at 8/5 (2.60) to grab a sixth goal in nine appearances for club and country.

With three goals to his name in six league appearances since a big money move from Southampton over the summer, Sadio Mane can also be backed at 8/5 (2.60) to strike for the third consecutive home game.

Joining Firmino and Mane on three goals for the league campaign so far, Philippe Coutinho is on offer at 15/8 (2.88) to find the net for the second successive encounter against these opponents.

Currently enduring his longest barren streak since January 2015 after going three league games without a goal, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is United’s 5/1 (6.00) favourite to end that run in style with the opener at Anfield, or 11/8 (2.38) to score anytime.

On the scoresheet in two of those three games to make it four for the campaign in all competitions, Marcus Rashford is available at 21/10 (3.10) to enhance his ever-growing reputation with his first goal against the Red Devils' great rivals.

Anthony Martial announced himself to the Old Trafford faithful with a debut goal against Liverpool just over a year ago, and he’s priced at 5/2 (3.50) to come back to haunt them yet again here.

However, with three goals to his name in the last four appearances against the Reds, Juan Mata looks like the best value of all at 11/4 (3.75) to add to his two for the season so far.
