Jose Spoiler Alert
Man Utd haven't had a test like this yet. Expect Mourinho to take an ugly point and move on.
The wisdom of the crowd says that Manchester United are officially swashbuckling now so today’s game at Anfield will be a classic. I couldn’t disagree more.
The fact that things are going great for the Red Devils will surely make Mourinho even more likely to keep things tight and take a point on the toughest away days?
United have had a ridiculously favourable fixture list so far this term so we have no similar games to compare this too. But go back to last season and you will see a 0-0 draw in the Anfield clash between these sides and indeed when Jose took his side to the Etihad.
His defence is looking really strong so the ‘Special One’ has no reason to change his fundamental approach to tough away games. Back a Draw/Under 2.5 Goals at a best price of 16/5 with Ladbrokes.
Liverpool still have a wonderful record against top class opposition under Klopp with only a bad day at Manchester City, with 10 men, to counter that. So don’t expect them to lose, just don’t necessarily expect them to win either.
It feels slightly too bold to back one scoreline so we can hedge our bets by profiting nicely if it ends 0-0 or 1-1.
