Jamie Carragher thinks Manchester United’s victory over Liverpool would “send shockwaves through the Premier League”.
The two sides are set to face each other this weekend, with United leading the league table, following their 1 – 0 win over Burnley.
“I actually think it’s a bigger game for Liverpool,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“The onus is more on them. If United got a result there, that’s when the belief would come that they could win the league. I still think people think United may fall away and Liverpool have still got that edge, but if they won at Anfield that would send shockwaves through the Premier League.
“It’s a game where Liverpool need to show they are the champions, they are the better team, get the result and also a performance that puts Manchester United back where they are.”
Looking ahead to the game, ex-Reds man added: “I don’t think Manchester United have ever really hurt Liverpool with the counter-attack at Anfield, like they have done against Manchester City in the past.
“There is no doubting the devastating effect United could have on the counter, especially with Liverpool’s problems at centre-back and questions over whether Joel Matip will be back there.
“But I don’t think Liverpool will change, if you look at their record at home, they have dominated for the last three years.”
