Liverpool v Manchester United at Anfield takes centre stage this weekend, with a home win giving punters the chance to treble their money. Here, bwin.com runs through the 3Way odds for the game between two of English football's biggest rivals, as well as those for all of the other Premier League matches on Saturday and Sunday. All odds quoted are correct as of 12:00 on Friday, 14th October but are subject to change.

The match of the week in the Premier League could also offer up the week's best bet, with Liverpool priced at 2/1 to beat Manchester United at Anfield in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off. The start made by Kenny Dalglish's men might have left them trailing the reigning champions by six points in the early Premier League table, but their recent record over the Red Devils at Anfield suggests they can defy their status as underdogs tomorrow. Liverpool have won their last three meetings with their fierce rivals on Merseyside, including a 3-1 victory in March this year. With Steven Gerrard back and United looking increasingly vulnerable in recent weeks, Sir Alex Ferguson's side could be heading for their first defeat of the season. That said, they are still favourites to pick up all three points at 13/10, with a draw priced at 23/10.

Chelsea also face a stern test of their credentials at Stamford Bridge in the shape of Everton. The Toffees might be outsiders at 8/1 to win in west London but they have proved a thorn in Chelsea's side over recent seasons and are unbeaten in six meetings between the two teams. With four of these matches ending without a winner after 90 minutes, a draw could hold value here at 7/2. Nevertheless, Andre Villas-Boas' charges remain heavy favourites to pick up three points at 7/20.

Manchester City should have an easier time of it despite coming up against unbeaten Aston Villa. Alex McLeish's men might have won two and drawn five of their opening seven games but they are facing a side whose form has been even more impressive. The Citizens have six wins and a draw from their opening seven matches, and with more than three goals a game scored on average they look good to extend a three-game run of hitting the back of the net at least three times against Villa at Eastlands. A City win is priced at 17/50, with a draw at 15/4 and Villa win at 31/4.

Saturday also sees three crucial games for teams lower down the table, with QPR hosting Blackburn, Norwich entertaining Swansea and Wigan taking on Bolton.

At 4/5, QPR are the only one of the three home sides to be odds-on to take all three points, although Blackburn boss Steve Kean will be hoping his team can pick up at least a draw at 12/5. After all, Rovers have actually scored more away from home than QPR have at Loftus Road, and Rangers still appear to be finding their feet following the influx of new players brought in towards the end of the summer transfer window. For the adventurous, a Blackburn win is priced at 7/2.

At the DW Stadium, Wigan and Bolton clash in a battle of two out-of-form teams. Each has won just once in their last six outings, and with the Trotters' victory coming in the Carling Cup they are on a run of six league defeats in a row. With both sides having such difficulty getting over the line, a draw could be the best option at 9/4. A home success is priced at 5/4 and victory for Bolton at 21/10.

With this in mind, Norwich would appear to have the best chance of securing a home win at odds of 23/20. The Canaries and the Swans have two wins, two draws and three defeats apiece in the league, although all of Swansea's points have been picked up at the Liberty Stadium. Their record away reads played three, lost three with nine conceded and just one scored. As Norwich have lost just one of their last 15 home games, a Canary victory looks the most likely outcome at Carrow Road, while a draw (23/10) and Swansea success (23/10) are at the same price.

The final game on Saturday sees Stoke take on Fulham. The Potters (11/10) have a strong home record and should come out on top here despite the Cottagers' 6-0 success over QPR on 2nd October, although Fulham can be backed to build on that win with another at 49/20. A draw is at 9/4.

On Sunday, Arsenal's record of five wins in their last six home matches means they are well placed to beat Sunderland at the Emirates. Steve Bruce's side are without a win on the road and are 13/2 to break their duck, with a draw at 33/10. However, Arsene Wenger's men should have three points wrapped up, as odds of 21/50 suggest.

The final two games of the weekend are much to harder call. Like the game between Wigan and Bolton at the DW Stadium, the Black Country derby at the Hawthorns is between two teams in desperate need of a win. However, this hasn't stopped West Brom from being installed as evens favourites, with a draw at 9/4 and a Wolves win at 14/5. The away side's price looks long considering West Brom have not won at home all season, while Mick McCarthy's side broke their away day duck at Blackburn and looked competitive at Anfield when playing Liverpool recently.

Finally, Tottenham are the latest team to test Newcastle's unbeaten record. The Lilywhites travel to St James' Park as 7/5 favourites for the win, with a victory for the Magpies priced at 7/4 and a draw at 12/5. Spurs' run of four wins in a row suggests they could be the team to burst Newcastle's bubble after an encouraging start to the season.
