Written by on October 13, 2017

There are some great rivalries to be found in the major American sports, but most pale in comparison to the great soccer rivalries throughout the world. These are often match-ups that have been going for a century or more and which has simmered long enough to reach boiling point. While you might expect Manchester United’s biggest rivals to be Manchester City, the reality is that Liverpool is the team that inspires the highest level of hatred among the United faithful, that’s why their Saturday’s matchup is so important, and basically, there is no a solid English Premier League Odds favorite for this one. There was a time, not so long ago, when Liverpool was the dominant team in England, whilst also picking up a handful of European trophies along the way. It has been a long time since those glory days, though, a period in which Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City ruled the roost. United have had their own issues since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, but they look to be on the way back to the top this season after a fantastic start. Liverpool is performing better under Jurgen Klopp, and what we have in store for Saturday morning is a match-up that promises to deliver top quality soccer entertainment and a fair few fireworks with the total at 2.5 goals.

Why consider Manchester United English Premier League Odds?

When Jose Mourhino took over as boss at Manchester United, he made it clear that he needed several transfer windows to build the team that would take the Red Devils back to the top of the EPL. The signing of Paul Pogba was where it all began last year, but it can be argued that addition of Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic are what have made the difference this season. Pogba will not be available for the game on Saturday, and while that is a blow, United have not really missed a beat with him out of the line-up. They are destroying everyone in their path, making a great start to both the Premier League and Champions League. United have amassed 19 points from a possible 21 in their opening 7 games, and have scored 21 times, surrendering only 2 in those games. They are level with Manchester City at the top, although they trail only in goal difference. Lukaku will be the man that Liverpool need to focus on this Saturday, as he has already found the net 7 times in the EPL this season.

Top Scorers

  • Romelu Lukaku: 7
  • Marouane Fellaini: 3
  • Anthony Martial: 3
  • Paul Pogba: 2
  • Marcus Rashford: 2

Why consider Liverpool English Premier League Odds?

When you talk about this current Liverpool squad, you tend to talk about the attacking options that they have to choose from. Coutinho, Firmino, and Sane are all players that can turn a game with a moment of sheer brilliance. They also have Mohammed Salah, a player sure to be on a high coming back after the international break, as it was his late goal that sent Egypt to the World Cup Finals in Russia next summer. When talking about this team, though, you also need to be aware of their defensive frailties, which seem particularly glaring on set pieces. Despite playing at home, Liverpool is not favorite at the England Premier League Odds against Manchester United. Liverpool has scored 13 goals this season, but giving up 12 explains why they are currently sitting in 7th place in the EPL. Liverpool will be without the services of the injured Leroy Sane on Saturday, so look for Coutinho to push further forward and Emre Can slot into the midfield.
