Liverpool Slight Favourite To Win at Home on MondayPublished on October 16th, 2016 6:50 pm EST
Football fans will be in for a treat this Monday evening as Liverpool will play host to Manchester United a battle between two of the game's most storied clubs.
Both teams have been on the upswing as of late, as Liverpool has won their last four matches, while Manchester United is 3-1-0 in their last four. Both clubs have high aspirations for this season, and both clubs desperately want to emerge from Monday evening with a win to continue their momentum.
Here are the odds for Monday's match as of this moment:
Man Utd, 13/5
Manchester United arguably has the more talented side, though Liverpool will have the home turf advantage.
Both Liverpool and Manchester United have aspirations to win the EPL title this season, though both are caught in the logjam that exists at the top of the table.
Liverpool, as of this moment, is 5-1-1 for a total of 16 points, which puts them three back of the league leaders, though they still have their game in hand. A victory for Liverpool on Monday would tie them with Man City and Arsenal at the top of the table.
Manchester United, on the other hand, stumbled earlier in the season and is looking to make up some ground. As of right now, Man Utd sits with a record of 4-1-2 for a total of 13 points. In order to move past the many teams that are currently in front of them, Man Utd needs to continue to win or else they are looking at another lost season. Can Ibrahimovic and Pogba lead them to the top of the table?
Liverpool is a perfect 2-0-0 at home so far this season, while Man Utd has managed to collect 6 points on the road over three total contests.
Liverpool's offense has been dynamic at home so far this season, as they have filled the net 9 times in front of their home fans. Man Utd has not been too shabby at all on the road, as they have scored 5 times in three contests.
Fans of football are going to get a real Monday night treat this week - who do you think will win?
