Liverpool and Ireland goal scoring great John Aldridge rarely enjoys watching his former club when they play the old enemy Manchester United.

Aldo's devotion to his beloved Liverpool means this fixture is a nerve wracking experience, but he is hoping that Brendan Rodgers side can match Louis van Gaal's men at the Theatre of Dreams.

"This fixture against United does not need any more hype around the world because this is quite simply the biggest Premier League clash of them all," Aldo tells us.

"The viewing figures for this match confirm that these clubs remain the biggest draws in the English game and so much is at stake in this meeting. 

"The six points the old enemy took off us last season effectively killed off our hopes of getting one of those prized Champions League places, but from what I’ve seen from United, there is nothing to fear from them this season.

"United’s defeat at Swansea in the last round of matches was not a major surprise, as they have not been convincing since Louis van Gaal took over as manager.

"That said, a draw at Old Trafford would be acceptable for Liverpool and I reckon they are good enough to get it."

Aldo is backing Liverpool's lead striker to score at Old Trafford on Saturday, as he is using his €50 charity bet from Paddy Power on this punt:

Liverpool's Christian Benteke to score at any time against Manchester United at 23/10 (possible returns €165.00)
