Liverpool are preparing to host Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday, January 19.

Ahead of the game, former the Reds player Jamie Carragher has made his prediction for the game.

“I am confident Liverpool will win the game,” Carragher told Sky Sports. “Mourinho, in his first couple games at Anfield with United, made it really difficult for Liverpool.

“But in the last one Liverpool really dominated and came out on top in Mourinho’s final game at United. 

“I think Ole is not quite as pragmatic as Mourinho, so I don’t see it being a shut-out kind of game, and I think the tactic for United will be very similar to what it was against Manchester City in December, playing deep and trying to hit on the counter-attack.

“They were absolutely devastating that day, and if they produce a similar sort of performance, Liverpool could have major problems.

“But there is a gulf between the two clubs, and if Liverpool play anywhere near what they are capable of, they will come out on top. I’m confident of a Liverpool win. I think 3-1 Liverpool.

“And if that is the score, we’ve got the pundit-camera on us in the commentary box, and hopefully we’ll see similar scenes to what we saw at Old Trafford when Adam Lallana got the equaliser!”

Currently Liverpool are leading the Premier League table with 61 points, while Manchester United are 5th with 34 points.
