Former Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher, has given his prediction for this weekend’s clash between Liverpool and Manchester United.
The Sky Sports pundit will watch on from the sidelines as he sees his former team look to make it 22 Premier League games unbeaten this season.
And Carragher believes seeing off United won’t be a problem for the Reds. He’s backed Jurgen Klopp’s men to make light work of Solskjaer’s charges on Sunday.
“I am confident Liverpool will win the game,” Carragher said. (Sky Sports).
“There is a gulf between the two clubs, and if Liverpool play anywhere near what they are capable of, they will come out on top.”
Manchester United remain the only team to take points from Liverpool this season. The Red Devils looked to be on course for a win at Old Trafford earlier in the campaign, only for Adam Lallana to strike.
This was something Carragher was only too keen to mention again.
“I’m confident of a Liverpool win. I think 3-1 Liverpool. And if that is the score, we’ve got the pundit-camera on us in the commentary box, and hopefully, we’ll see similar scenes to what we saw at Old Trafford when Adam Lallana got the equaliser!”

While United v Liverpool is always a massive fixture and anything can happen, Liverpool will fancy this one.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team are well and truly in transition. One week they are fine, the next they look like a side who’ve never played together. Furthermore, they are missing Marcus Rashford through injury. It’s a huge blow for United and a potential game-changer.
Carragher is probably right in his prediction. Liverpool could, and should, have too much going forward for United to handle.
An away win, though, would not be the biggest surprise ever. United love to spoil a party, even if it’s only a temporary stoppage of a bigger party come the end of the season at Anfield.
