< class="grid-title">

The most famous rivalry in English soccer will enter its 211th edition this Sunday as Manchester United heads to Liverpool with 10 points separating the two teams.

As Liverpool aims to get back into the Champions League spots just as United eyes up second place, here are our soccer betting picks for the big game this Sunday.

Over 2.5 Goals

Although United heads into this one in much better form and with a lot more points on the board, the Red Devils don’t always have it their way at Anfield. Liverpool smashed them 4-0 on Merseyside last season, and the past five meetings between these two have brought in over 2.5 goals.

This season, both have conceded 28 goals and United has scored one more goal (41) than Liverpool in the Premier League. The Reds also returned to winning ways on Wednesday with a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield.

If Marcus Rashford can continue his exceptional goalscoring form, he might end up getting one or two goals all by himself. Either way, we expect plenty of goals again between these two rivals.

BETTING PICK: Over 2.5 goals is -152 with FanDuel

Mohamed Salah to Score or Assist

Mohamed Salah returned to scoring in Liverpool’s recent win over the Wolves. It was just his ninth goal in the Premier League, with him scoring 20 in 36 games in all competitions this season, so despite Liverpool's woes, he is still in solid goalscoring form.

Against United, Salah has a sensational record. The Egyptian has scored 10 goals against it in 11 games and also registered two assists to equal a goals contribution record of 13 in 10 matches.

As the forward is back in goalscoring form and back at Anfield, we think he’ll get in on the act against United again.

BETTING PICK: Mohamed Salah to Score or Assist is -120 with FanDuel

Marcus Rashford to Score a Goal Assisted by Bruno Fernandes

After a goal in the League Cup final last week, Rashford has scored 25 times in 39 games for United this season. This includes 14 in the Premier League - only Erling Haaland and Harry Kane have netted more.

Fernandes has assisted 10 times from the same amount of games and he has been upping his creativity this season to provide the services for the in-form goalscorer, Rashford.

Against Liverpool, the United forward has scored six times in 14 games and he comes into this game having scored the winning goal against Liverpool earlier this season. As attention in Liverpool’s midfield turns to control Casemiro, this may give Fernandes more freedom to create for Rashford.

BETTING PICK: Marcus Rashford to score a goal assisted by Bruno Fernandes is +800 with FanDuel.
