Liverpool Man United betting

One of the biggest rivalries of English Premier League (EPL) – if not the entire world of football – will be played at the Anfield stadium on Monday, 17th October. Liverpool and Manchester United are not just two of the most successful clubs in Premier League, they are the fiercest rivals too and this should be a great game to preview and offer betting tips for.

Season so far

Liverpool look settled under Jurgen Klopp this season and for many are the dark horses for the title. They have already dispatched Arsenal, Leicester City and Chelsea with relative ease and style. The faithful are already buzzing with their approval of Klopp and his aggressive passing style. With 16 points from seven games, Liverpool are fourth in the table.

For Manchester United, it has been a roller coaster ride already in the 2016-17 EPL season. The high of Jose Mourinho’s arrival, and some jaw-dropping signings, looks a thing of the past already. To say that they are struggling to be consistent is just stating the obvious. With 13 points from the first seven matches, they currently lie sixth in the table.

Mourinho vs Klopp

If there are any two managers who are poles apart, it’s this pair. Klopp likes to be passionate both on and off the pitch, channeling his team with high pressing style. Mourinho, on the other hand, is all business, focising on the nitty-gritty of getting the points.

A defeat at Anfield would leave Mourinho six points behind their fierce rivals –a horrible thought for their fans. But the previous record of Mourinho at Anfield makes pretty reading. He has lost only thrice in 10 past visits to this stadium. A win in this encounter will not just lift the spirits of United but revive Jose’s standing as the true Fergie successor.


Klopp is sweating over the fitness of two of his first team regulars – Adam Lallana and Gini Wijnaldum. But that aside, the hosts are brimming with confidence and look a great punt in backing for a win. There looks to be value too on Liverpool win.
