Manchester United have the chance to temporarily extend their lead over Manchester City to 10 points by beating Liverpool on Sunday, and the Tipster is backing Robin van Persie to fire his side to glory.

Our resident betting expert is tipping the Netherlands international to score and United to win, although his long shot is for the Reds Devils to come from behind at Old Trafford.

In Sunday’s late kick-off, he expects a low-scoring affair between Arsenal and City, with a draw the probable outcome.

Van Persie to score first in Man Utd v Liverpool – 10/3

Roberto Mancini this week declared Van Persie has been the difference between City and United this season. And the Tipster is backing the Dutchman to be the difference between Liverpool and United, too. He has scored eight goals in his last eight games. Furthermore, he netted in the reverse fixture earlier this season. So, Van Persie to score first at Old Trafford is a good bet at 10/3.

Man Utd to beat Liverpool – 10/11

United have won all of their games at Old Trafford this season – except a surprise 3-2 loss to Tottenham Hotspur back in September. Liverpool have been hit and miss on the road, with two wins and two defeats in the last four excursions away from Anfield. Still need convincing? United have won the last four Premier League meetings between these sides at Old Trafford. Ferguson’s side to beat Liverpool is a reasonable 11/10.

Under 2.5 goals in Arsenal v Man City – 11/10

City are unbeaten in 25 of their last 27 matches in the Premier League, while the Gunners have lost just once in their last 10 outings. So this should be a tight affair. The last seven games between Arsenal and City at The Emirates had produced less than three goals. So, the Tipster reckons with that statistic in mind, under 2.5 goals between these two sides is a good shout at 11/10.

Arsenal and Man City to draw – 5/2

City are missing Sergio Aguero, Samir Nasri and Yaya Touré for the trip to Arsenal and have failed to beat any teams from the top of half of the table away from home (Chelsea, Liverpool and Stoke). With Arsenal and City both on impressive runs, this should be a very tight encounter at The Emirates. So, the Tipster is backing Arsenal and City to draw at 5/2.

The long shot: United to win from behind v Liverpool – 6/1

United have earned a reputation for falling behind in games this season, but in typical Red Devils fashion have successfully reversed the score-line in their favour by the time the final whistle sounds. This has happened in eight of their 21 matches. So, the Tipster’s long shot for this edition is United to win from behind against Liverpool at very tempting odds of 6/1.
