It has never been easy for Liverpool to claim dominance at home if their guests are Manchester United, most especially if accompanied by Jose Mourinho.
Apart from their Europa League win in 2016, their home crowd saw them either being crushed or being drawn in the last five games they hosted Manchester United in the Premier League.
Either way is not beneficial to The Reds who sees every match as an opportunity to get the lead they need to stay at the top of the table. It’s going to be a breathtaking Northwest derby but it’s not going to be easy for The Red Devils knowing that Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial’s presence in the starting XI are uncertain.
With the hosts having Mohamed Salah and undefeated 28 home matches in the Premier League, I predict Liverpool to win with Manchester United exhibiting their mastery of Anfield and score at least 1.
Score Prediction: Liverpool wins at 2-1.
