Manchester United v Liverpool betting tips: Thriller on cards at Old Trafford
Man Utd v Liverpool betting tips and odds
The biggest game of the weekend takes place at Old Trafford which is still buzzing from Manchester United’s sensational comeback win against Atalanta in the Champions League.
The Red Devils trailed 2-0 at half-time but goals from Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo secured a 3-2 victory, the same score by which Liverpool won at Atletico Madrid.
The hosts are 2/1 underdogs to win on Sunday but let’s examine some of the other markets in our Man Utd v Liverpool betting tips.
Jurgen Klopp’s side set the tone for a superb week for English clubs in the Champions League when they took advantage of Antoine Griezmann’s red card early in the second half to edge a thriller at the Wanda Metropolitano.
The Reds remain the only unbeaten team in the Premier League but still trail leaders Chelsea by one point in second place while United dropped to sixth after a 4-2 defeat at Leicester last weekend.
The Merseysiders are 5/4 favourites to beat their arch rivals as they did in a 4-2 victory in last season’s fixture, although three of the previous four Premier League meetings at Old Trafford have resulted in a draw which is 13/5.

Two of those games ended 1-1 and the other was goalless, so we go 21/5 on a share of the spoils and under 2.5 goals while another 1-1 draw is 6/1.
Liverpool’s record away from home this season has been terrific, scoring at least three goals in their seven matches in all competitions and can be backed at 11/4 to make it eight or they are 21/10 to win and over 2.5 goals.
United have scored and conceded in their last four games in all competitions and they have failed to keep a clean sheet in 19 of their previous 20 games so we go 17/20 on both teams to score and at least three goals.
In our #GetAPrice specials, both teams to score, over 2.5 goals and either team to win is available at 6/5 as one of our Man Utd v Liverpool betting tips.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer went with his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation on Wednesday night although there was no room for Paul Pogba who came on for Scott McTominay midway through the second half when United were 2-1 down.

The France midfielder is likely to return to the starting line-up but Bruno Fernandes, Rashford and Fred are all injury doubts having sustained injuries against Atalanta.
Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara remains sidelined but Curtis Jones missed the Watford and Atletico games with a minor injury, although Klopp is hopeful he will be ready to face United.
Salah is the hottest player on the planet and his double in Madrid means he has hit the back of the net in his last nine games.
The Egyptian forward is the 7/2 favourite to get the ball rolling or 23/20 to get on the scoresheet as he has done in two of his last three appearances against the Red Devils.
Roberto Firmino scored a hat-trick at Watford last weekend and struck twice in last season’s 4-2 win at Old Trafford, so we make the Brazilian 6/1 and 11/5 in the two markets in our Man Utd v Liverpool betting tips.
