Manchester United’s Premier League top four betting odds are firmly on the drift and it’s already hard to see how this can be anything other than a season of transition for a Red Devils side who are plagued by the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo in the squad. It’s pretty clear that Erik ten Hag has a big job on his hands.

If you compare the Manchester United v Liverpool betting odds, then you are able to get 9/2 about the home side claiming the points at Old Trafford. It might seem big on first glance although it all comes down to whether Ten Hag is able to improve on an abject performance at Brentford.

United were certainly the architects of their own downfall against the Bees when their attempts to move the ball from the back ended in failure. Ten Hag must decide on a style of play that can nullify a Liverpool team who are missing several key players for the game.

Darwin Nunez earned his first LFC start against Crystal Palace before getting a red card and he will join Thiago on the sidelines, while Ibrahima Konate and Joel Matip could also be missing in central defence. Even so, Liverpool have Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah in explosive form and perhaps they will have the edge here.

What Are the Best Bets for Manchester United v Liverpool?

We are reluctant to back Liverpool at such a short price and an alternative could be wagering on Under 2.5 Goals. United will surely want to operate with a deep-lying defence to nullify the Liverpool attack and we might see Diogo Jota return from injury for this clash, while Jordan Henderson looks sure to start.
