Manchester United v Liverpool odds : Suarez to fire Daglish to victory

Manchester United continue their potentially season-defining run of games this weekend when they play hosts to Liverpool at Old Trafford this weekend, as we bring you the latest betting odds and a cracking free bets offer from Paddy Power.

Having worked their way past Arsenal and fought back in dramatic fashion to claim a point against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend, Sir Alex Ferguson’s side now go head to head with their fiercest rivals with return of Luis Suarez to action providing plenty of ammunition in what is expected to be a particularly feisty encounter.

Suarez recently returned to action for Liverpool in their goalless stalemate against Tottenham on Monday having completed his eight game ban for racially abusing United full-back Patrice Evra when the two sides played out a 1-1 draw at Anfield back in October.

Liverpool’s continued insistence that the ban was unjust has further added fuel to the already simmering tensions between the two clubs, while Kenny Dalglish’s continued defiance after the Tottenham game has served only to fan the flames further.

United may have demonstrated their iconic never-say-die attitude in the 3-3 draw with Chelsea last weekend as they battled back from 3-0 down, but Ferguson was forced to admit it was a case of two points dropped rather than one gained as rivals Manchester City went two points clear in the title race thanks to a comfortable 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday.

A host of United players face a race against time to prove their fitness in time for the clash at Old Trafford, with Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Anderson all rated as doubts, but Tom Cleverly may return to action having travelled with the squad to Stamford Bridge last weekend.

Liverpool may opt to keep Suarez on the bench and give Andy Carroll a further chance in the starting XI after the former Newcastle forward impressed against Spurs, while Jose Enrique is Dalglish’s only other injury worry after the Spanish full-back sat out against Spurs.
