Man Utd v Liverpool: Van Persie the best exponent of top price offer

| 13.12.2014

Manchester United’s televised clash against bitter rivals Liverpool promises all sorts of brilliant betting opportunities and none arguably finer than Ladbrokes’ latest offer on Tablet and Mobile only.

The firm are boldly treating their customers to top price on all correct score and first goalscorer bets between English football’s most successful sides.

And there are certainly a few prime candidates for a deadlock-breaking effort to make best use of this offer on.

Firstly, it is impossible to ignore the form of Man United striker Robin van Persie, who is a 9/2 chance to break the Old Trafford deadlock.

Louis van Gaal’s favourite son has been locating the onion bag at will lately, scoring with his only two chances to seal the points at Southampton last time, making it three as many games, gifting the Red Devils their fifth consecutive five Premier League win.

That took Van Persie to a promising tally of eight for club and country in 2014/15 and since swapping Arsenal for United the Dutch assassin has also bagged twice against Liverpool, including the first at Old Trafford during his debut campaign.

In the correct score market there is also a stand-out choice and that is the most prevalent scoreline between the foes over the Premier League era.

Occurring seven times since 2002/03 season, 2-1 to Man United is a score which can be backed at real pocket-swelling odds of 7/1.

The Red Devils have a handy knack of coming out on top in the English Clasico and given their far superior form coming into the Old Trafford clash of five straight league wins, another United victory seems most likely.

Meanwhile, the fact that Van Gaal’s charges have both found the net and conceded in eight of their last 11 games, shows the likelihood their opponents will at least find a way past them.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
