Having stifled the Reds' attack in both league meetings last season, Al Hain-Cole expects Mourinho to employ the same tactics to good effect once more

A heavyweight Premier League clash takes place at Anfield on Saturday, as Liverpool play hosts to rivals Manchester United.

Having won just one of their last seven fixtures in all competitions, Jurgen Klopp's men are available at 7/4 (2.75) with dabblebet to record a morale-boosting victory over their old enemies.

In contrast, the Red Devils have won nine and lost none of their 10 fixtures this season, and are on offer at 13/8 (2.63) to maintain that form with a big win on Merseyside.

Each of the last three encounters between these sides have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 23/10 (3.30) on them cancelling each other out once again in this one.

Despite boasting the best record against the rest of the top six last campaign, the Reds were unable to come out on top in either encounter with Jose Mourinho's team.

This was largely due to the cautious tactics employed by Mourinho, who negated the opposition's pressing game by sitting back and surrendering possession - particularly away from home.

Although viewed by some as negative, this game plan effectively neutralised an attack that found the net in every single match against Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City and Arsenal - recording at least one victory against each.

Given this success, there is no reason why the Portuguese manager will stray from this strategy on Saturday, when his team should have little problem in nullifying a forward line that has been misfiring recently.

Having scored just eight times in their last seven games, a Liverpool side missing the injured Sadio Mane will surely struggle to break down a defence that has conceded only four goals in 10 fixtures this season.

With another fiercely-contested clash looking likely, odds of 5/6 (1.83) look like solid value on under 2.5 goals being scored for the sixth meeting in a row between these sides.
