Liverpool vs Manchester United: Mark Lawrenson gives his prediction

BBC pundit, Mark Lawrenson has offered his prediction on the outcome of Manchester United’s trip to Anfield on Sunday.

The Red Devils are aiming to open a six point lead at the top of the Premier League table, with a win over the reigning champions, while Jürgen Klopp’s side will be on the lookout for a win of their own.

And ahead of the clash, Lawrenson has predicted a lively encounter, with both sides causing each other problems.

He said, “We’ve not had fans at football matches for many months now, but It will still feel strange for Liverpool to be at home to Manchester United with both teams at the top of the table.

“A lot of the time these fixtures promise a lot but turn into nothing games. I am expecting this one to be lively, though. United have got momentum and will pose a number of problems for Liverpool’s defence.

“Liverpool are going through an indifferent spell, but they have not suddenly become a bad side. They will create chances, too. They just need to take them this time. I am going for a draw.”

Lawrenson’s final prediction: 1-1
