Man Utd v Liverpool betting preview.
Manchester United take on Liverpool at Old Trafford this evening in one of the most eagerly-anticipated matches of the Premier League season.
The two old rivals renew their bid for bragging rights as they meet in the late kickoff, and as ever it will surely be too close to call.
Louis van Gaal’s side won both games against Brendan Rodgers’ men last season, with a 3-0 win at Old Trafford and a 2-1 victory at Anfield later in the season, and these games proved decisive as they finished above the Merseyside outfit.
Juan Mata scored in both of those games last term and could be a good bet to find the back of the net in 90 minutes this evening, particularly as he will become one of the team’s most important attacking players in the absence of club captain Wayne Rooney, who is looking likely to miss the game through injury.
Liverpool lost heavily to West Ham last time out and will likely be slight underdogs in this game after a difficult summer in which they lost star player Raheem Sterling.
One thing’s for sure, this will be an unmissable contest between two sides who will be competing for honours this season.
