Premier League, kick-off at 12:30pm Saturday 14th October 2017 from Anfield
England booked their place in Russia, finishing as group winners. We now return to league action, and what a return it is, with Liverpool hosting Manchester United at Anfield on Saturday afternoon, live in front of the Sky Sports cameras from 12.30pm. This promises to be a thriller, made all the better with a winning bet.
A nervy match expected, each of the last three meetings of these sides have ended all-square. But, with Manchester City running riot here earlier in the season, United must do something similar if they are to continue to track their neighbours at the top. Plenty of value in this one, we think we’ve got bookies over a barrel. Follow our professional betting tips and predictions.

Team News – Liverpool
You’ll find The Reds down in seventh place after seven games played, behind the likes of Burnley and Arsenal, level on 12 points with Watford. Not the start manager Jurgen Klopp had hoped for, and just one win from their last four league outings makes them difficult to trust when in with a form opponent. The locals have drawn two of their last three, including a 1-1 away to Newcastle last time out. A free-scoring match expected, we had to settle for two, an opener from Coutinho, followed by a Joselu equaliser.
There’s no doubt where Liverpool’s problems lie either. As we flagged up plenty of times last season. They are in need of a proven goal scorer, who can be relied upon to stick the ball in the net on a regular basis, turning draws into wins. They need a match winner if they are to kick on and hold their own in the top-four. Further proof of that can be taken from the stats. 68% of the match possession at St James Park, they had 17 shots at goal, but put just two on target.
Klopp declared himself frustrated when speaking to the press post-match, but it’s nothing new. Picking up on his side’s inability to put the ball in the net to get a winner, despite creating wonderful chances, he thought they had five or six outstanding opportunities. Another share of the spoils on Saturday wouldn’t be the worst result for Liverpool, and can be added to your betting tips and predictions at 23/10 with most firms, including Betfair. Surprisingly, Liverpool are favourites for the points, top price 8/5 at Betfred.
Team News – Man Utd
While Liverpool have struggled, Man Utd have flowed, oozing class in their first seven starts, getting fans excited in the process. Man City lead the way going into the weekend, one goal the difference between the rivals at the top. The Red Devils were expected to have fallen away by now, but they’ve won six and drawn one of seven, winning each of their last three. It has become obvious City aren’t going anywhere, so United must keep pace.
Jose Mourinho’s men were last seen hammering Crystal Palace 4-0 at Old Trafford to wrap-up September in style. A win over the struggling Eagles was to be expected, but they dealt with their opponents in impressive fashion, and have now scored eight goals in their last two starts in all competitions. A 4-1 away win over CSKA Moscow in the Champions League caught the eye. United -1 on the handicap is there for supporters with confidence, 5/1 at William Hill.
That may be pushing it a little, but after seeing Liverpool collapse against The Citizens, we certainly wouldn’t put anyone off. There’s plenty to like about the straight away win, Betfair offering 15/8, and that seems to be the general feeling in the betting ring at present. Both teams to score, as they did when the pair last locked-horns, is 7/10, best price at Sun Bets.
Liverpool vs Man Utd – Premier League Tips and Betting Predictions
I really don’t expect Man Utd to do the kind of job on Liverpool that City did, but they don’t have too. It’s never easy going to Anfield, and a win, regardless of how they achieve it, will do. I am going to pay attention to the stats however, which scream back the draw, and that’s the best of our betting tips. 23/10 trades at Betfair, and that will do a job.
Each of the last three have finished level, with two of those ending 1-1. Take a pop in the correct score market on the two-goal draw and you’ll find 6/1 on the Betfair exchange. That’s favourite in the market, which comes as no surprise to us, but the price is good enough to spice up our viewing. An exciting 90 minutes ahead, let’s get both bets settled as a winner to start Saturday in style.
