If you fancy a flutter, following Sheffield United's late equaliser against Arsenal and Chelsea's defeat to Newcastle, Man Utd now face a daunting visit to Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool vs Man Utd, Sunday 4.30pm

WHO can stop the Klopp Express?

Man Utd are the only team to have taken points off Liverpool in the Premier League this season.

That 1-1 draw at Old Trafford seems a long, long time ago now.

Liverpool have won 20 out of their 21 matches and it'd be daft to bet against them going through this campaign unbeaten.

Not only do this team know how to win pretty, they also know how to win ugly too.

No more so than at Spurs last time out, where Klopp's side may have rode their luck but ultimately continue on their merry way towards a first title since 1990.

One thing you could bank on earlier in the season was Liverpool's leaky backline, which kept conceding despite the victories.

There was a streak before Christmas where games involving Liverpool saw both teams scoring on 12 straight occasions.

But with Allison back fully fit, it's now six Premier League clean sheets on the spin - that's a run that goes back to the 5-2 win over Everton in early December.

We're in a new decade and times have certainly changed.

Man Utd are 13/2 here and we reckon that's actually a little bit short. Imagine us saying that ten years ago.

Under Solskjaer the red half of Manchester continue to take one step forward, two steps back.

They've seen off Burnley, Newcastle and Norwich in recent weeks with the minimum of fuss, but also lost to Watford, Arsenal and Man City in the Carabao Cup.

4/11 on the league leaders to continue their march to the title is well worth taking and probably the best you'll get on Liverpool at home this season.

On recent visits this hasn't been a happy hunting ground for United and they've drawn a blank in three of their last four jaunts down the M62.

Considering the clean sheet run Liverpool are on, the 13/10 on Klopp's men to win without conceding is huge.

Roberto Firmino has a bit of an Anfield allergy this season and ALL of his nine goals have come away from Merseyside.

He looked as sharp as ever though against Spurs - netting the winner - and 9/5 is a huge price on him to bag at anytime.
