Liverpool To Extend Unbeaten Run At Anfield?

Manchester United travel to Anfield on Sunday where they will take on an unbeaten Liverpool side.

The Red Devils remain the only side to stop Jurgen Klopp’s men from winning this term.

United were 8/1 outsiders heading to the Etihad last month, but defied the odds to claim an impressive 2-1 victory. They will hope to end Liverpool’s unbeaten home run that now extends beyond two years.

Liverpool

Liverpool demonstrated (yet again) why they’re Premier League champions in waiting as they beat Tottenham 1-0 away last weekend. After the match, Jose Mourinho said: “Liverpool are probably the best team in the world.”

I’d say definitely.

They’ve a return of 61 points from a possible 63 in the league this term – that represents the best start by a club in any of Europe’s top five divisions.

They lead Manchester City by 14 points and Leicester by 16 with a game in hand on both. At their current rate of progress they could theoretically win the title before the end of March.

Liverpool are deadly in attack with their front-three of Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane netting 28 goals between them.

The defence are a force to be reckoned with too, with six clean sheets in a row going into Sunday.

Manchester United

For all their struggles this season, Solskjaer’s side have performed quite well against the Premier League’s top sides. They recorded wins over Chelsea (4-0), Leicester (1-0) and Tottenham (2-1) at Old Trafford and defeated Man City 2-1 at the Etihad.

They drew their home meetings against Arsenal and Liverpool, and possibly deserved more than a point against the Reds. Their only defeat against a top side came at the Emirates on New Year’s Day when they were beaten 2-0 by the Gunners.

United have already done what no other team has done this season and that is take points off the league leaders.

Apart from just wanting to spoil Liverpool’s invincible hopes, United need points in order to secure a top four finish.

The Norwegian is facing a midfield crisis with both Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba sidelined with injuries.

Prediction

Liverpool Total Goals – Over 2.5 (11/8)

Liverpool look unstoppable right now and I can’t see United getting anything from this match. I’m expecting Klopp’s men to win comfortably.
