All roads lead to Anfield on Tuesday for the Premier League showdown between Liverpool and Manchester United. With both teams fighting for different league goals, it promises to be a breathtaking match.


Liverpool head into this game having just booked their spot in the FA Cup final. The Reds started with three quickfire goals in the semi-final – a brace for Sadio Mane after a swooping header from Ibrahima Konate and despite restoring some parity through Bernardo Silva and Jack Grealish, Pep Guardiola’s men could not spark a miraculous comeback. With an infamous Quadruple still a possibility, it’s evident Liverpool has had a brilliant season to date. Jurgen Klopp’s men have scored at least two goals in each of their last five games in all competitions and have remarkably won ten games in a row at Anfield in the Premier League and no premier league side has performed better than them on home turf this season. However, despite Manchester United’s recent struggles, Liverpool last completed a Premier League double over the Red Devils in 2013-14. Given how poor United looked at the weekend, we are backing at least two goals for Liverpool with Mo Salah getting on the scoresheet. With almost an empty medical room, Klopp will be working with a fully-fit squad once again and will likely shuffle the pack. Predicted lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Mane.


United started in a brilliant fashion against Norwich at the weekend going 2-0 up. However, a spate of dodgy defending so nearly cost Man United once again as Norwich scored twice in a threatened comeback, but with 76 minutes on the clock, Ronaldo stood over a free-kick with his trademark pose before firing an unstoppable effort into the net – claiming his 60th career hat-trick to help his side leapfrog Arsenal into fifth place in the Premier League table, although Tottenham Hotspur are still three points clear with a far better goal difference. The Red Devils have won just twice across their last six Premier League games conceding twice in both of those victories. Memories of the embarrassing 5-0 defeat at Old Trafford earlier this season will be in play as they have failed to register a win at Anfield in any competition since 2016 and have only found the back of the net once on their rivals’ turf in their last six meetings. Edinson Cavani and Luke Shaw are out through injury while Raphael Varane, Fred, and Scott McTominay are major doubts. Predicted Lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Matic, Pogba; Elanga, Fernandes, Sancho; Ronaldo.
