Manchester United are preparing to host Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday. The Red Devils are currently second in the league table, while the Reds are 6th and are targetting a top-four spot.

Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.

“It was a pretty turgid affair when these two drew 0-0 at Anfield in January, and I am not expecting a thriller this time either – these games are rarely great ones.

“We might at least get a goal or two on Sunday, though.

“Manchester United have been winning at home recently, but they have left it late to win their past two league matches at Old Trafford.

“Burnley and Brighton have both scored there in the past month, so I think Liverpool will manage that too.”

Lawrenson’s score prediction: 1-1
