There really is only one thing better than a victory over the old enemy, and that is taking their fans hard earned cash in the process. Picklive is offering Republik of Mancunia readers a unique opportunity do just that this afternoon by visiting RoM’s Picklive league.
Not only stake your claim for the £100 prize on offer for RoM readers, but you could also be handing out harsh lessons to the Liverpool fans playing through one of their biggest independent fan sites. We will also be matching the deposit of one person who deposits funds at any time on Sunday, with the minimum deposit being £5.
As for the prize, there are many signed up who have not even used their free games, whilst those that have can deposit as little as £5 and have at least 5 more chances to top that very beatable top score of 52.
To help you do so, here is some insiders’ advice from Picklive:
Top United Pick
You know the drill by now, pick three players, and they have five minutes to score points for all of their actions on the pitch. With that in mind, you can not go wrong with Paul Scholes. He showed in the first half of Tuesday that he is still capable of owning the middle park whoever the opposition. He made more passes than any other United player at Stamford Bridge, and is United’s highest scorer on Picklive this season.
Top Liverpool Pick
Against the Hammers, Gerrard gave the ball away more than any other Liverpool player in any game this season. So following a week of heavy criticism I would expect him to step up to the plate on Sunday, whether his team-mates can do the same is a different matter entirely.
One to Avoid
If Dalglish persists with a 3-5-2 formation then the ageing Brazilian will most likely deputise for the injured Martin Kelly, with Johnson moving to the right hand side. The ex Valencia man has lost a yard of pace with each passing injury and will have a torrid time up against an unstoppable Nani. The result? He will be forced into foul after foul to stop him in his tracks, and will lose bucket loads of points with it.
