SATURDAY ENHANCED ODDS
Get LIVERPOOL at 4/1 OR EVERTON at 11/1!!
Massive price boost from Paddy Power
Paddy Power have announced they are ENHANCING the prices in the Merseyside derby – with Liverpool available at 4/1 (was 10/11) and Everton at 11/1! (was 10/3)! More details below!
The result means that United have won just one of their opening five league games under Louis Van Gaal and are already 8 points off leaders Chelsea the top.
The defeat to the Foxes was made all the worse for Van Gaal with Tyler Beckett receiving a red card and Jonny Evans limping off. The pair are set to miss out this weekend joining Chris Smalling (thigh) and Phil Jones (hamstring) on the sidelines.
Marcos Rojo is likely to move into the middle of defence with Luke Shaw set to finally make his Old Trafford debut.
In addition to his defensive woes, Van Gaal is also set to without Marouane Fellaini (ankle), Mi-chael Carrick (ankle), Ashley Young (groin) and Jesse Lingard (knee).
The former Barcelona man is likely to hand a first Old Trafford start to Radamel Falcao as he looks to avoid back to back defeats for the first time since taking over.
Despite the stuttering start, Van Gaal has moved to calm fears telling reporters “At the start we won all of our [pre-season] games but now we are in difficult circumstances. We should have won last weekend – we had to win when we were 3-1 up,”
“If we had, we would have been two points off second place.
“But because of the loss you are now questioning me. If we won then it would have been differ-ent. We will overcome things – the season lasts a long time.”
While United have yet to slip into gear, West Ham have made an impressive start with their 3-1 win over Liverpool their most eye-catching performance of the season.
Goals from Morgan Amalfitano, Winston Reid and Diafra Sakho sealed the three points and moved the Hammers up to 8th in the table.
The victory came at a price however with Senegal international Cheikhou Kouyate (groin) set to miss out this weekend while Kevin Nolan (shoulder) and Matt Jarvis (thigh) are not ready for a re-turn to action.
