Michael Owen has given his prediction for the upcoming match between Manchester United and Liverpool.
The two sides are set to face each other in the Premier League on Sunday.
Jurgen Klopp’s team are currently sitting in 3rd place in the league table and will be hoping to continue their unbeaten run. Meanwhile, the Red Devils’ loss could mean Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future at Old Trafford is under threat again.
Both clubs are eager to have a successful game at the weekend, while Owen backs Liverpool to beat the rivals with a score of 2 – 1.
“I can’t wait for this one. Man United were disappointing away at Leicester last week,” he said.
“They created some chances but defensively it was far too easy for Leicester to create chances and to play through the United press. They looked too open for me, so Solskjaer will need to adjust the balance of this side.
“There’s only place to start when it comes to Liverpool, Mo Salah. He’s surely the best player in the world right now and that goal last week was sublime. He’s been virtually unplayable this season, so this is a huge ask for the United defence to keep him quiet.
“United will no doubt play better than they did last week, but I still think the Reds can get the win. I’ll say 2-1, will Mo Salah be one of the scorers?”
