MANCHESTER United versus Liverpool is arguably the biggest rivalry in English football and Sporting Index have a number of specials markets for Sunday’s massive clash at Old Trafford.
Only the 20 red cards in the Merseyside derby betters the 15 recorded in this fixture in the Premier League era. Traders have priced total red cards at a cheap looking 0.25-0.35. Buyers would need at least one sending off, while sellers would have to hope the 22 players keep their heads for the whole 90.
Steven Gerrard has scored more goals as an away player than anyone else at Old Trafford in Premier League history. After finding his performances coming in for criticism this season, the Reds skipper will be desperate to make a point. His total goals are priced at 0.15-0.25. Remember he scored a brace of penalties here last term and could have had a third, but saw another spot-kick saved.
Sporting Index’s ‘First Last Blast’ market awards points for the first and last goalscorer. For example, Robin van Persie, with six goals in nine games against Liverpool, is trading at 6-8. If he scores first then he makes up 25. Similarly, he makes up 25 if he’s the last goalscorer. If van Persie was the first and last goalscorer he’d make up 50.
