Goals aplenty not a given at Anfield

Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool hosting Manchester United always promises to deliver action and excitement although in recent times it has featured fewer goals than you might expect.

Two goals has been the maximum in any of the last five meetings between these deadly north-west rivals, so you might be tempted to dive in at 41/20 for there to be two goals in total in the game.

With goals in mind, Romelu Lukaku may have made a prolific start to his Red Devils career, but he has managed only one goal in his last seven appearances against Liverpool, so 1/1 to score at anytime could represent more of a gamble than first imagined.

For those of a United persuasion, 33/20 to win the game on Merseyside is a worthwhile option, with the visitors having taken seven points from their last three Premier League visits to Anfield.

Bear in mind Jurgen Klopp has only ever lost one meeting in seven with Jose Mourinho, whose side are to 23/10 to keep a clean sheet, having done so in eight of their last nine league games.

Turning to the hosts, the absence of livewire forward Sadio Mane due to injury is a major blow and leaves heavy responsibility on the shoulders of Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian has netted nine times in his last 12 top-flight outings so 51/20 to score at anytime in surely something to be considered.

The problems for the Reds have mainly been at the back where costly errors have left them with just one win in their last seven games in all competitions.

At 7/4 to win the game on Saturday the hosts appear to offer some value. If you feel really brave, Liverpool are 12/5 to keep a clean sheet.
