United travel to Anfield on Sunday to take on arch rivals Liverpool and are a top priced 2.75 with Boylesports to come away with all three points.
As far as current form is concerned, Sir Alex’s side look a great bet at odds-against.
Liverpool are still to register their first win of the new season and have managed just 2 points from four games.
Brendan Rodger’s men have won just two of their 11 Premier League games at Anfield in 2012 (W2 D4 L5) and have posted the worst shooting accuracy of any team in the top flight so far this season.
By stark contrast United have won their last three games in the league and come into the game on the back of a 1-0 win over Galatasaray in the Champions league earlier in the week.
However the stats are not good as far as the Red Devils are concerned.
Liverpool have won four and lost none of their last five games in all competitions against United on their own patch, and seem to raise the game to another level when playing United.
However they have looked a side who are still trying to gel together, and have won just two of their 11 Premier League games at Anfield in 2012 (W2 D4 L5).
They have also posted the worst shooting accuracy of any team in the top flight so far this season, and it’s hard to see them coming from behind if United take the lead.
I think United are more than capable of holding them at bay and putting at least two past them.
Chicharito, who has scored in each of his last two Premier League appearances at Anfield, looks a bit of value at 8 with Boylesports in the first goalscorer market.
Robin van Persie, who has made an immediate impact since his move to Old Trafford, not surprisingly heads that market.
He scored both goals when Arsenal beat Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield last season and has netted four in his last five games against the Merseysiders. bet365 make him 6 chance to break the deadlock and offer 2.5 about him netting anytime – good value when you consider his record.
I fancy United to win this 2-1 or 3-1, and those scorelines can be backed at 10 and 21 respectively with bet365.
