Liverpool and Manchester United enjoy one of the biggest rivalries in British football but at the moment it is based on history, rather than any semblance of competition on the field of play. The Red Devils have dominated the Premier League since its inception in 1993 and in that period Liverpool have failed to win a single title.

Recently the Reds haven't even been able to finish in the top four and they have began this season as poorly as any in memory. A 3-0 defeat to West Brom was followed by a respectable enough draw with Manchester City but a 2-0 home loss to Arsenal then a 1-1 draw with Sunderland have left Brendan Rodgers side hovering just above the bottom three. Defeat to Manchester United on Sunday would almost certainly see them drop into the relegation zone.

Unfortunately for Liverpool supporters, defeat looks like a very real option on Sunday afternoon. The current side simply isn't strong enough to compete with the very best in the Premier League when they are on their game and United are starting to look like a team capable of winning the title.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side have won their last four matches and their 4-0 win over Wigan Athletic last weekend was done with a style that suggests things are beginning to click for the Red Devils. Robin van Persie is settling in nicely with four goals in just three starts and odds of 5/1 at Ladbrokes that the Dutchman breaks the deadlock on Sunday look very generous.

United are currently a best price of 9/5 with William Hill to beat Liverpool at Anfield but Bettingpro readers can get better odds when betting with Sporting Bet. The firm have boosted the price on the visitors to 2/1 and that is simply too good to miss.

Liverpool are a similar price at 15/8 with Ladbrokes but it is difficult to make a case for Rodgers' Reds. They don't have the physical presence or the pace in attack to trouble Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic and the idea of Joe Allen and Jonjo Shelvey winning the midfield battle with Paul Scholes and Michael Carrick is laughable. Steven Gerrard is, of course, a danger but his 'Roy of the Rovers' moments are becoming a rarity and it would take a dramatic upturn in recent form for the captain to inspire his players to victory on Sunday.

The Anfield crowd is, in fact, Liverpool's only real weapon this weekend but they were silenced by Santi Cazorla and Lukas Podolski last month and the same thing may well happen with van Persie and the increasingly impressive Shinji Kagawa. The Japanese playmaker has already opened his United account and it is 10/1 at Betfred that he nets the first goal of the game on Merseyside.
