With the Reds' prolific front three unusually quiet against Mourinho's team, Al Hain-Cole sees value in backing United's young England international

Jose Mourinho will be determined to shackle Liverpool's famous front three when Manchester United visit Anfield on Sunday.

The Portuguese manager has overseen clean sheets in both of his visits to this ground since taking over at Old Trafford, while none of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino or Sadio Mane have ever scored or assisted in a league game against the Red Devils for Jurgen Klopp's team.

Nevertheless, Salah is William Hill's clear 14/5 (3.80) favourite to break the deadlock, having already done so a league record seven times this campaign.

The Egypt international has hit six goals in his last six club starts, and is priced at just 4/5 (1.80) to add to that anytime here.

Firmino only has six goals to his name in 23 appearances so far this campaign, but can be backed at 11/8 (2.38) to come up with the goods in this high profile clash.

Meanwhile, Mane has gone eight games without a goal after a particularly wasteful performance against Napoli in midweek, but is on offer at 6/4 (2.50) to return to form in timely fashion against the bitter rivals.

At the other end of the pitch, Romelu Lukaku will be keen to bounce back from his part in a disappointing team performance against Valencia that drew heavy criticism from the manager.

The Belgium international has actually been on target in two of his last three league games, and is the Red Devils’ 8/1 (9.00) favourite to open the scoring on Merseyside, or 12/5 (3.40) to strike anytime.

Lukaku has been outscored by Anthony Martial so far, although the Frenchman is a longer 27/10 (3.70) shot to add to his seven league goals after missing the last couple of fixtures through injury.

However, United’s real bright spark recently has been Marcus Rashford, who has hit the back of the net in his last two matches against Fulham and Valencia.

Having scored both goals in a 2-1 victory the last time this pair met, he offers plenty of value at 3/1 (4.00) to come up with the goods once again.

Rashford to score anytime at 3/1 (4.00) for a 1pt stake with William Hill
