Liverpool failed to win in the previous round when they played amazing match against Arsenal 3-3. Home team had a lead on the match twice, but at the end match was finished without winner. Klopp’s side will play another hard match, this time against Manchester United and they hope that can take all three points this time. Liverpool stand at the 9th position and they still believe that can reach the place which leads in the UEFA Champions League. Their home performance is very solid. In the last 13 home matches in all competitions they lost only once. They are closer to take three points against Man Utd, especially if they repeat their performance from the 1st half-time against Arsenal. Firmino exploded against Arsenal and scored two goals, but it wasn’t enough for all three points. He will get another chance against Louis van Gaal‘s side.

Manchester United stand at the 6th position with 3 points than Liverpool and they are still in the race for the title. The other candidates have an advantage, but there are many matches left until the end of the season, so everything is open. They failed to win in the previous round against Newcastle United, when they conceded the late goal in 90 minute. They hope that can beat Liverpool and continue tradition from the last three matches between these two teams when Man Utd won all three. Visitors have one of the best defense in Premier League and they believe that can save their net. On the other side, their attack is not impressive, but it seems that Rooney woke up and started doing something in the attack. He scored 3 goals in the last two matches and he will be the most dangerous player for Liverpool defenders.

Home side miss Jon Flanagan (0/0 d), their second top scored Philippe Coutinho (17/5 m), Dejan Lovren (14/0 d), Daniel Sturridge (5/2 f), Divock Origi (8/1 f), Martin Skrtel (17/1 d), Jordan Rossiter (1/0 m), Joe Gomez (5/0 d) and Danny Ings (5/2 f).

Liverpool vs Manchester United possible lineups

Liverpool: Mignolet; Clyne, Toure, Sakho, Moreno; Henderson, Milner, Can; Lallana, Ibe, Firmino.
Manchester United: De Gea; Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Young; Schneiderlin, Herrera; Martial, Mata, Lingard; Rooney.

Liverpool vs Manchester United Prediction

Liverpool have an advantage of home field and they are favorites to take three points, but Manchester United have very good defence and it would be hard for Klopp’s team to score. I expect very tough match, especially in the first half-time and draw after first 45 minutes.
