Liverpool vs Manchester United: Prediction

Both teams seem to have recovered from their lack of goals from their last match display, there were more of attacking than defending as they both put three in the back of the opponents net.

Playing Christian Benteke would be an advantage as he scored in his last three league games against Manchester United.

Juan Mata also is a threat to Liverpool as he has scored six three times and assisted four in his last six games against Liverpool.

For my prediction, i think the game will be won in the final minutes, and I give it to the home team.
