Reds aiming to extend their 100% start to the season...
<div><h2>Man Utd vs Liverpool</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Sunday, October 20, at Old Trafford</strong></a></p><p>Liverpool are the odds-on favourites to leave with all three points when they visit Old Trafford for a big Premier League match on Sunday. The Reds have won all eight games so far this season and they sit top of the table, eight points clear of defending champions Man City and 15 ahead of struggling Man Utd. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are teetering precariously close to the relegation zone after losing 1-0 to Newcastle last time out, and the Norwegian is tipped to be sacked soon if he cannot turn the situation around. Yet they will struggle to topple an in-form Liverpool side that are surging with confidence right now.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Man Utd have had to deal with a number of injury problems in the early stages of the season, but they could welcome several players back for this game. Victor Lindelof is ready to partner Harry Maguire once more at the back, Aaron Wan-Bissaka could return and Anthony Martial could be back to lighten the load on Marcus Rashford up front. The Red Devils scored just one goal in September and that came from the penalty spot, so they need a bit more pace, dynamism, creativity and inspiration going forwards. However, Paul Pogba is tipped to miss this game with an injury, which is a real blow, while Jesse Lingard could also miss out.</p><p><a href=";a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Liverpool have not reported any new injury concerns following the international break. Joel Matip could be back to slot in alongside Virgil Van Dijk at the back, while Reds fans are looking forward to welcoming goalkeeper Alisson back into the side after a long spell on the treatment table. Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino are all in devastating form and they will relish the opportunity to tear this Man Utd defence apart.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Liverpool had to settle for a point when they visited Old Trafford last season, after securing a handsome win when the teams met at Anfield. They have improved since then and they are playing with real belief, desire and confidence in their ability. Man Utd have regressed. They look bereft of inspiration, and they cannot seem to create chances in open play. You never want to write Man Utd off at Old Trafford, but Liverpool have been vastly superior this season and the odds on them taking all three points are attractive.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betfair">Liverpool to win at 1.83 (5/6) with Betfair</a></strong></p></div>
