888sport has a great welcome offer for new customers giving treble odds on their first bet placed, which is ideal for this Saturday’s Premier League clash between Manchester United and Liverpool.
Manchester United had started the 2015/16 season in great form, with two 1-0 wins over Tottenham and Aston Villa. However, after being held to a goalless stalemate against Newcastle, things got worse for Louis van Gaal’s men - as they lost 1-2 last time out to Swansea City, who appear to be a bogey team for the Dutchman having claimed the last three meetings between the two sides by the same scoreline.
Coincidentally, Liverpool also opened the current league campaigns with two 1-0 triumphs followed by a no score draw - after seeing off Stoke and Bournemouth, before Arsenal shared the spoils with Brendan Rodger’s side at the Emirates.
The similarities to their opponents this weekend don’t end there either - as they also lost their last game before the International break. However, the Reds succumbed to a heavy 0-3 reverse to West Ham United at Anfield.
With just goal difference separating United and Liverpool in fifth and seventh in the Premier League respectively, both sides will hope to get one over on their fierce rivals and propel themselves back up towards the European places.
The two most successful English clubs in history meet for the 176th time on Saturday evening, with the Red Devils’ 70 wins edging out Liverpool’s 60 victories and the two sides playing out 45 draws.
United have ran out as victors over their Merseyside rivals 45 times on home soil, with only 16 defeats in the previous 86 meetings in Manchester. Man Utd have scored 144 goals past Liverpool at home in all competitions, netting nearly twice as many at Old Trafford than Liverpool’s total of 79 goals.
The pair have exchanged 3-0 wins in the last two corresponding fixtures, with Liverpool triumphing in March 2014 and Man United gaining their revenge just nine months later. However, that 3-0 win for Liverpool is the only time the Reds have avoided defeat in their last five trips to Old Trafford.
Man Utd to win is 19/20 on 888sport, but the bookmaker is enhancing those odds to around 14/5 with treble odds (3.85 to be exact.) A Liverpool win at Old Trafford is boosted to 19/2 from the normal odds of 16/5, while the draw will pay better at 15/2 when the price is tripled.
Open an account with 888sport and you will get treble odds on your first bet, up to £10 maximum stake.
You’d be crazy to let the offer pass if you don’t have an account with 888sport and the great thing about this treble odds offer is that all the winnings will be paid in cash, which means it can be withdrawn straight away and there is no obligation to make another bet with the extra winnings like some other enhanced odds offers.
The offer applies to any sport and 888sport has an extensive choice with thousands of markets on over 20 different sports. However, it’s this Premier League clash that will create most interest this Saturday evening - as these two historic English heavyweights do battle in what will surely be another fiercely contested clash between the two rivals.
