Betting syndicate Ladbrokes have this afternoon announced updates odds on the clash between Liverpool and Manchester United this weekend.
Liverpool vs Manchester United
The Premier League giants are set to reignite their historic rivalry on Sunday evening, in a league meeting at Anfield.
Hosts Liverpool head into proceedings buoyed by their qualification to the Last-16 of the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Jurgen Klopp’s men put Napoli to the sword by a goal to nil on Merseyside, in the process leapfrogging the Serie A outfit to secure 2nd-place in the Group C table behind PSG.
Manchester United, meanwhile, fell to a disappointing 2-1 defeat at Valencia in their own Champions League outing. As a result, the Red Devils also finished as runners-up in their group, behind Italian champions Juventus.
On the domestic front, meanwhile, this weekend’s hosts, Liverpool, sit top of the Premier League table, having picked up an extremely impressive 13 wins and 3 draws from their opening 16 league outings.
United, on the other hand, have already fallen to 4 Premier League defeats, and sit a hefty 16 points adrift of Liverpool in the English top-flight as things stand.
Liverpool clear favourites
And, as mentioned above, the contrasting form of the two clubs to this point in the campaign has been reflected in the bookies’ odds for this weekend’s clash.
As per Ladbrokes, Liverpool are overwhelming favourites to secure 3 points on Sunday evening:
Despite the odds, however, Manchester United will no doubt be buoyed by the surprising statistic that Jurgen Klopp is yet to earn a league victory over the Red Devils since his arrival in England.
