Manchester United v Liverpool Preview, Capital One Cup, Wednesday 25th September 2013

Manchester United fans must by now realise that under new manager David Moyes, winning things this season is going to be a lot more difficult than expected. United were thumped 4-1 at the weekend by Manchester City and that can’t of done the players or fans confidence any good at all, especially having to face inform Liverpool side that will see the return of Luis Suarez in this League Cup match on wednesday night.

Brendan Rogers side also came un-stuck at the weekend, losing 1-0 at home against Southampton and that result will also have have had an impact to the players confidence as they prepare for this game, but with the return of Luis Suarez to the side who will be fresh and eager to impress all Liverpool fans will be confident that they can obtain the right result at Old Trafford.

Manchester United v Liverpool Team News

Manchester United Team News:

David Moyes will hope that Van Persie will be available again having missed the 4-1 thumping against Manchester City at the weekend due to a groin strain as his side did look a completely different side without their star man leading the attack up front.

Darren Fletcher continues to battle intestinal problems and not even the physio staff know when he will be able to return if at all, other than that though the hosts have a full squad to choose their starting lineup from.

Liverpool Team News:

The big news for all Liverpool fans is that Luis Suarez will be involved in the starting lineup for this game having now served his ten match ban suspension from the FA after biting Chelsea full-back Ivanovic towards the end of last season and this could mean that Daniel Sturridge is given a well deserved rest having carried the front line so far this season.

Sebastian Coates, Aly Cissokho and Coutinho remain absent as the continue to recover from respective injuries.

Who Has The Advantage?

Wednesday night’s game from Old Trafford Stadium will become the 161st meeting between the two clubs over the years. Manchester United have a significant advantage during these games having won 62 times overall, (39 at Old Trafford Stadium).

Liverpool have managed 54 victories overall, (15 at Old Trafford Stadium) but as we can clearly see the majority of those wins have come when they have had home advantage.

Average Goals Per Game?

417 goals have been scored during those previous 160 matches played between the two clubs which provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 2.60 which suggests that we should see at least a couple of goals bulge the net on Wednesday night.

Manchester United v Liverpool Match Betting Odds Market.

Manchester United are clear favourites to win this game on Wednesday night despite having had a poor start to their new season under new manager David Moyes and those who think the Red Devils will bounce back to winning ways can get on at a best price of 6/5 with Stan James (£10 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw is certainly a possibility here with both sides having lost over the weekend and this can be backed at a best price of 5/2 with Betfred (£10 Free Bets No Deposit Required for New Customers).

Liverpool suffered their first defeat of the new season over the weekend at home against Southampton and that will surely have made manager Brendan Rogers extremely angry and frustrated and his players will want to do a lot better for their manager in this game and at current odds available of 5/2 with Ladbrokes (£30 Free Bets for New Customers) this could turn out to be huge value.

Manchester United v Liverpool Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Manchester United don’t lose many games at Old Trafford and with the Van Persie likely to return to the starting lineup having missed that 4-1 defeat at the weekend, they do at least have a striker that can score goals.

Liverpool will also see the long awaited return of Luis Suarez, the Uruguayan has now served his ten match suspension picked up towards the end of last season for taking a bite out of Ivanovic and although the player demanded a transfer, he does now seem to be fully committed to Liverpool and will be keen to make the headlines on wednesday night for the right reasons.

Not sure I agree with the online bookmakers having made United such strong favourites to win this game as things have not been going as well as expected since the start of the new season with the exception of a decent Champions League performance last week against Bayer Leverkusen.

Liverpool are certainly not without a chance of causing a huge upset though and if Brendan Rogers side did manage to win this game it would be a massive blow to the United fans and for me all the pressure is on the hosts and the game really could go either way on wednesday night.
