Manchester United will be hoping to close the gap on rivals Liverpool when the two sides come face-to-face at Old Trafford in Sunday’s blockbuster Premier League showdown.
Coming into the game on the back of a nine-game winning streak, Jose Mourinho’s men are 6/5 (2.20) favourites with Paddy Power to move to within two points of their second-placed opponents by making it 10 in a row here.
Meanwhile, the Reds are enduring their worst spell of an otherwise positive season after going three games without a win, but can be backed at 11/4 (3.75) to return to form in style with a high profile victory on enemy territory.
Paddy Power are taking on both teams in this high-profile encounter, offering new customers a choice of two enhanced prices. Anyone opening an account through the links provided can back Manchester United at 10/1 (11.0) or Liverpool at 16/1 (17.0).
Simply register through the corresponding links, back your chosen team at the usual price and if they win then the returns will be topped up to the enhanced price at the final whistle.
The teams played out an uneventful 0-0 draw when they met at Anfield back in October, and there are odds of 21/10 (3.10) available on them cancelling each other out once again here.
Having gone into that game under some pressure due to a disappointing start to the season, Mourinho drew plenty of criticism for his lack of ambition and defensive spoiler tactics aimed simply at nullifying their free-scoring opposition.
However, with his team now playing to their full potential and churning out win after win, the tables appear to have turned for this rematch against a visiting side who have lost their characteristic sparkle of late.
Missing key players through injury and Africa Cup of Nations duty, Jurgen Klopp’s men have failed to score in consecutive matches for the first time in almost a year under the German manager.
This does not bode well for a game against a defence that has conceded just eight goals in 15 fixtures in all competitions, keeping clean sheet in each of the last three.
With six wins to their name in the previous seven matches against Liverpool at Old Trafford, an in-form United team are well worth backing at those 6/5 (2.20) odds to take advantage of their guests’ current slump by recording a massive victory in this one.
