Peter Crouch believes that Liverpool will be too strong for Manchester United at the weekend and expects them to pick up a win.
Jurgen Klopp’s team welcome United to Anfield on Sunday in the Premier League for the huge fixture and will be looking to take another step towards the title.
The Reds have won 20 out of 21 league games this campaign to storm to the top of the table, but the only time they failed to win was their 1-1 draw against United earlier in the season on their visit to Old Trafford.
Liverpool did beat United 3-1 at home last season and would love another victory on Sunday.
Crouch believes that his former side Liverpool are going to be too much and even stated “it won’t matter” what United throw at them.
“I have noticed there is a degree of confidence coming from Manchester and it would mean the world to them if they were the ones to end Liverpool’s unbeaten run. That said, I don’t see anything other than a Liverpool win,” Crouch wrote in the Daily Mail.
“The relentless way Jurgen Klopp has his players moving to the title is incredible. It won’t matter what United throw at Liverpool – it will be another home victory.”
Liverpool are 27 points above fifth-placed United in the table going into their meeting and have every right to be supremely confident about picking up another win during their remarkable season.
But there is the lingering factor that it’s a huge factor and Klopp has found it difficult during his time in England against United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team are suited to playing on the counter attack and may prove a threat at times, but Liverpool have the best defensive record in the division and also a scintillating attack that can outscore any.
