Philippe Coutinho in action for Liverpool Football Club.  Home red kit. The first game back after a short break in the English Premier League will see Liverpool play host to Manchester United in the Saturday early match on 2017.10.14.

Both clubs are still holding onto hopes of winning the English Premier League title this season, though Man Utd's chances are admittedly better than Liverpool's. At the end of the day, however, both teams are looking up at the 800 pound gorilla that is Man City, which has been slowly ripping through their competition with relative ease to start the season. Having said that, Man Utd is still tied with Man City at the top of the table, and there is no reason to think that they can't keep things competitive, given their level of talent.

Both teams are in for a tough match on October 14th, as evidenced by these odds:

Liverpool, 2.60
Draw, 3.40
Manchester United, 2.62

That's about as close as you are going to get. Most people would likely agree that Liverpool is the more talented club, though they will be playing in front of their fans at home on Saturday.

This game is of crucial importance to both teams, as it will be hard to mount a run for the EPL title if you drop games such as this one.


Here are the double chance odds for the Man Utd vs Liverpool tilt:

Liverpool or Draw, 1.50
Draw or Man Utd, 1.53
Liverpool or Man Utd, 1.33

The over/under for this match is set at 2.5 goals:

Over 2.5 goals, 1.80
Under 2.5 goals, 2.00

Finally, the "both teams to score odds":

Yes, 1.61
No, 2.20


Manchester United is buzzing after a strong start to their season. Their offensive talents are producing and they are making it very hard for their opponents to score.

Liverpool, on the other hand, has been much more uneven, as they are 3-3-1 through the first 7 games of the season. Bookmakers and fans are still holding out hope that they can turn things around, though they will have to do so quickly in order to have any chance this season.

This should be a very tight and quality game - who do you think will come out on top?
