Its Man Utd v Liverpool & Arsenal v Man City kicking off Sunday as Paddy Power release the latest odds and announce a new free bets offer to spend on the game, as the firm reports they will offer refunds should the game end in a draw.

Manchester United take on Liverpool at Old Trafford this weekend in what is still one of the biggest fixtures that the Premier League has to offer.

United sit comfortably at the top of the table right now and Liverpool are down in eighth, but these two have a fierce rivalry and it doesn’t matter where a team is in the league, they both are desperate for a victory here.

Live Football : Paddy Power Free Bet Offer

Its a cracking Sunday of Premiership football, as Paddy Power celebrate with a new free bets offer worth £250/€250 to customers to spend on any game! They’ll also refund certain bets if the Man Utd v Liverpool or Arsenal v Man City games finish in a draw! Claim here!

Make no doubt about it, the Red Devils are the big favourites for this one as they are taking on a team that will struggle to challenge for a Champions League spot this season. However, the Merseyside club always seem to raise their game against United and could spring a surprise here if at their very best.

Sir Alex Ferguson is without Wayne Rooney, which is a blow for the Scot as the striker got himself a brace in this fixture last season. He does now have Robin van Persie to call upon though, so will not be worried about where the goals will come from as the Dutchman has netted 16 times in the Premier League already.

With Manchester City playing later in the afternoon, the league-leaders have a chance to move ten points clear at the top.

Ferguson knows that his men should claim all three points here, but will be wary of them starting slowly once more and going a goal down, something that has happened too many times for his liking this campaign.

Despite their recent record of conceding at home, the Red Devils have now won eight of their last nine in the Premiership and their price of 10/11 with Paddy Power to take all three points is sure to find plenty of takers.

As for Liverpool, they should come to Manchester in decent spirits after winning their last two Premier League games 3-0. When on top of their game, the Reds play some superb football and at times it looks as though Brendan Rodgers’ plan at the club is really working.

However, they can also not turn up for a match and look like an average Premier League side.

Rodgers has to get his men in the right frame of mind on Sunday and send them out to take all three points, although their price of 3/1 for the away win looks a little too short to take, considering the Reds are already 21 points behind the league leaders as we approach mid January.

As always, all eyes will be on Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez. If Liverpool are to win here, then there is no doubt that these two have to put in big performances. Suarez has netted 15 Premier League goals this season and has been linking-up with Gerrard very well in recent weeks.

The England captain might not get from box-to-box like he used to, but he can still dominate a game and is very clever when making his runs into the final third. He has a good record against United as well and has scored a number of important goals, so knows what this fixture is all about.

His price of 12/1 to find the net first could provide some value, considering all the support is for Robin Van Persie, who looks a little on the short side at 10/3.

This game really does look like being a superb encounter between the two most successful sides that England has to offer. Old Trafford can be a bit subdued at times, but that will not be the case on Sunday afternoon. It will be rocking.

All of the action gets underway from 1.30PM and it is 90 minutes that you don’t want to be missing.
