Coral’s bet of the day
- Brazil forward Firmino scored in last Anfield encounter with Red Devils
- He also netted last time out at Swansea
- Man Utd last kept a Premier League clean sheet in August
Firmino enhanced wincast worthwhile for Monday Night Football
Premier League football doesn’t get more compelling than Liverpool v Manchester United, so to celebrate we’ve made a Roberto Firmino enhanced wincast Coral’s bet of the day for October 17.
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are in rampant form right now, so siding with one of the home forwards at Anfield makes perfect sense.
Read on as our football experts reveal reasons why a 7/2 price boost on Firmino scoring and the hosts winning is among top Liverpool v Man Utd tips…
Brilliant Brazilians in attack
Although the Anfield outfit’s attacking exploits under Klopp have become an ensemble effort, Firmino is in-form and has struck when the Red Devils were last in town.
That came in a Europa League knockout phase tie, while Firmino also found the target away at Swansea City last time out in Premier League action. Not only that, but he scored on international duty when rounding off a 5-0 home romp over Bolivia.
Supported by compatriot Philippe Coutinho, Senegal forward Sadio Mane and Daniel Sturridge, Firmino’s firepower should be no less explosive in this encounter with Man Utd.
Red Devils defence leaves a lot to be desired
Jose Mourinho will be concerned by the lack of clean sheets his travelling Old Trafford team are keeping. Since beating Hull City at the end of August, Man Utd have shut out just one side in seven across all competitions, and that was Europa League group whipping boys Zorya Luhansk.
Worse still, the Red Devils are conceding just shy of two goals per game in their four Premier League games since taming the Tigers. Liverpool averaged over three in the same number of outings, and Firmino netted three of those.
With the Reds recording five successive wins, plenty points to the Firmino enhanced wincast at a superb 7/2 price. You can stake a maximum of €/£20 on this price boost, meaning you could get as much as an €/£80 return on your investment.
