Liverpool vs Manchester United – Sam Hendry with the game’s two best bets
To see United travelling to Anfield as such big underdogs and as the clearly inferior side must be rather humbling for their supporters after so many years of dominance over their most historic rivals.
Mo Salah has returned to his form of last season in spectacular fashion with four goals in the last week – including the crucial winner against Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The last two meetings between these sides at Anfield has ended goalless; a repeat of that would suit Jose Mourinho but the chances of his slapdash defence can hold off Liverpool again seem unlikely.
They will undoubtedly make things difficult for their hosts and it will be interesting to see what starting line-up Mourinho goes with after some very public criticism of several players recently.
But Liverpool are unbeaten for a reason; they have the best defensive record in the league and seem to have gathered a knack for grinding wins even when not playing well. Liverpool to win by a one-goal margin is available at odds of 13/5 with Boylesports and Bet365 and Salah for first scorer is 7/2 with Betfair and Paddy Power
