Liverpool head into Sunday’s game against archrivals Manchester United with a 21 game unbeaten streak in all competitions. In contrast, their opponents have struggled for form in recent weeks, having lost to Leicester last weekend, and scraped a win over Atalanta on Wednesday.
In terms of team news, Curtis Jones is expected to be in contention after recovering from a groin problem that kept him out of the matches against Watford and Atletico Madrid.
Thiago Alcantara (calf) is a major doubt for the trip to Old Trafford, while Harvey Elliott (ankle) is unavailable as he continues his rehabilitation.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Marcus Rashford is touch and go for the Liverpool game due to a dead leg. Fred is doubtful due to a hamstring problem he picked up against Atalanta, but Anthony Martial is likely to be fit after recovering from a knock. Raphael Varane (groin) and Amad Diallo (fitness) have already been ruled out.
The bookies have Liverpool as the slight favourites with William Hill pricing them at 13/10 for the win. A draw is currently 11/4 with Betfred while a victory for United is 11/5 at the same bookmaker.
Predicted Score – 2-1 to Liverpool
