Liverpool vs Manchester United: Prediction
The two teams have a lot of quality in their squad and incredible tactical backing with two superb managers at the helm. At the same time, Manchester United have an incredible head-to-head record against Liverpool enjoying 4 consecutive league wins. And a stable central midfield will be key for Mourinho if United are to stop the Reds at Anfield this time.
But the winning momentum and consistency is currently with Liverpool. Also Manchester United are a side which lacks consistency. This could play straight into the hands of the hosts who will be more than desperate to end their poor run of results against the Red Devils.
