Liverpool v Man United Betting Odds at online bookmaker Paddy Power: Liverpool 17/10, Man United 13/8, Draw 23/10 Verdict: A match, which looking at things will probably be pretty close. Liverpool have done well at home against United in recent times, and have won four of the last five on home soil against Sir Alex Ferguson's men. But they are not carrying any form,s coring just three and conceding eight this season in the league with two draws and two defeats. It hasn't been an easy start for Brendan Rodgers, but he won't need much of a motivational speech this week. The Reds will be up for this one, they always are. Liverpool’s home form against United can't totally be dismissed here and it has happened for a reason, they raise their game for visits of United, even when their season hasn't been going well. That will be a factor, but United have the far superior goal scoring power and there is a balanced feel about this game all the same.

Liverpool v Man United Betting Preview: Can Brendan Rodgers inspire his side to a first league win of the season? They needed a Luis Suarez strike to earn themselves a point away at Sunderland last weekend, and that was only their second point of the season. Worryingly it was only their third goal of the season, while their defences have been conceding at an average of two goals per game. The lack of power up front is a major concern and something that needs to be redressed. If Luis Suarez is having an off day then Liverpool haven't got much to offer up front at all. At home this season they have managed just one point from six, and they have won just two of their last eleven matches at Anfield in the Premier League. Not a great stretch of form at all, but at least they can look at their recent home record against Sir Alex Ferguson's men and be relatively content. The problems for Liverpool going forward can be clearly seen in their rating of a 27% shooting accuracy this season, which is the league worst. Liverpool can't match United in terms of scoring power, so they are going to need a really big performance in midfield from Joe Allen and Steven Gerrard. United meanwhile have been ticking along and have had seven different players on the score-sheet this season in the Premier League, a league high. After losing on Merseyside in their opening fixture against Everton this season, United have simply won matches that they should have won. Honestly they haven't really been that convincing, but they know how grind out points. They have the quality of Robin van Persie as well who enjoys scoring against Liverpool and his link up play with Shinji Kagawa has just about been the brightest thing in United's season so far. With Javier Hernandez also weighing in with two goals in his last two Anfield appearances, there are goals wherever you look in the United side. The same can't be said of Liverpool and at the end of the day, that may be the difference. There are holes in the United back line and they have only kept one clean sheet in four league matches, but can Luis Suarez expose them?
