Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov believes Edinson Cavani has the experience and intelligence to unlock Liverpool’s defence when we visit Anfield on Sunday.

“I think it’s going to be an even game, both teams have got a strong attacking force with very quick players upfront in Salah, Mane, Martial and Rashford,” Berbatov told Betfair.

“I think if Cavani is going to play he has that experience and intelligence to know how to unlock a defence like Liverpool and he can be a big weapon. If Pogba continues like he did in the last game, with that desire to get up and down the pitch with his big strides, technique and vision then he will also cause problems.

“At the back, as long as United don’t overcomplicate things, play simple, take the ball and give it to someone else with one or two touches then I think United will be ok. In my opinion it’s more important for United not to lose, one point can be a big difference at the end of the season and it can make you champions.

“If United win it will be a big blow for Liverpool psychologically, it will also be a big statement to the Premier League and United will be sending a message that we are back.

“However, if they do win, they can’t sit there and enjoy it because six points is nothing in the Premier League and that’s something we’ve witnessed before.”
