THE north-west derby is one of the most popular matches on the soccer calendar – the history between the two sides is truly remarkable.
Liverpool travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United. Plenty is at stake with United fighting to keep its hopes of playing in the Champion League next season alive. Liverpool need the points to stay firmly ensconced in the top four.

A win for sixth-placed United will give them a glimmer of hope on making a top four finish and securing a Champions League spot next season. It should be buoyed by the fact that it is undefeated in its last four matches.
A concern for United coming into the match is that it has only managed one home win and a draw against top-seven opposition, having lost to Newcastle, Everton and Tottenham at Old Trafford.
Liverpool is yet to lose an away game in 2014 and is currently second on the ladder. Boasting the two highest goal-scorers in the competition, it is a formidable opponent at the best of times.
The Manchester United backline doesn’t look equipped to deal with the pace of Liverpool’s attack, particularly Nemanja Vidic. Patrice Evra has also had defensive lapses this season. Phil Jones will be left to shoulder the heavy burden of trying to protect the goalkeeper.
I am tipping Liverpool to be too good for Manchester United.
Manchester United head-to-head: $2.50
Liverpool head-to-head: $2.87 with sportsbet.com.au (better then $2.80 at sportingbet.com.au)
As United are playing at Old Trafford they’ve opened as the favourites in head-to-head betting. Both sides are better than even money in this market. I’ve tipped a Liverpool win at $2.87 with sportsbet.com.au.
Manchester United (-1): $4.50

Liverpool is tipped for the win so the one goal advantage works for this market.

Liverpool: $4.80 with IASbet.com
The defence of both sides isn’t their biggest asset so I am tipping both sides will score. Along with the predicted Liverpool win, you can get $4.80 on Liverpool to win and both to score.
