Five Liverpool and Man Utd scorer shouts

Ahead of the latest chapter of the intense rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester United, Coral bring you five likely scorer shouts in what is a crucial Premier League clash at a pivotal stage of this intriguing season.

So read on to see who could be finding the net in front of the Anfield crowd during the super Sunday action..

Wayne Rooney

Manchester United v Swansea City - Barclays Premier League - Old Trafford

Man Utd’s skipper Rooney had been on the receiving end of plenty of criticism for his underwhelming performances this season, but the all-time England marksman has seemingly rediscovered his eye for goal in recent weeks.

The Red Devils frontman has bagged four goals in his previous three outings, including a double last time out over Newcastle United, and he is 19/10 to dispatch another during this revived run of his on Merseyside.

Christian Benteke

Earlier this term, Louis van Gaal’s rallied to a 3-1 triumph at Old Trafford, with Belgium international forward Benteke netting the losing side’s consolation spectacularly from an overhead kick.

The towering targetman is 7/4 to strike again anytime on home soil in what will be German Jurgen Klopp’s maiden Man Utd meeting in the Anfield dugout.

Anthony Martial

Sport - 2015 Christmas Package

Football’s most expensive teenager Martial made the best possible start to his Man Utd career, netting a sensational solo goal on his debut against Liverpool at Old Trafford last year. The France international forward has since gone on to notch up eight goals in all competitions and will seeking further success this time around.

Following his former fixture heroics, having struck that superb 86th maiden goal on home turf, Martial is a tempting 6/1 to net last again as he continues to be deployed from a wide position by Van Gaal.

Roberto Firmino

Manchester City v Liverpool - Barclays Premier League - Etihad Stadium

Brazilian starlet Firmino endured a tough start to his first campaign as a red, but under the guidance of Klopp he is beginning to find his feet, proving this further with a clinical brace in his last appearance over Premier League leaders Arsenal during a 3-3 thriller.

The Liverpool playmaker is 23/10 to add another goal to his tally over bitter rivals United anytime, with his impressive showings a potential cause for concern for Van Gaal’s defence, which leaked three goals to Newcastle recently.

Juan Mata

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Manchester United v Manchester City - Old Trafford

On the Red Devils’ most recent visit to the red half of Merseyside, it was little Spaniard Mata that starred in a narrow 2-1 victory, linking up with now departed Angel Di Maria to net an amazing bicycle kick.

Following his superb showing that day, Mata is 9/1 to open proceedings or 25/1 for another Anfield brace in this latest Liverpool meeting.
