Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has tipped the Reds to beat Manchester United when the pair face each other on Sunday, reports the Daily Express.
The Merseyside club are playing the Red Devils at Anfield, and know a win will take them in to the Premier League top four at the expense of their Mancunian rivals. After a poor start to the season it has taken a massive effort from Liverpool to get in to this position, and they haven’t even conceded in their last six games.
Meanwhile Louis van Gaal’s team beat Tottenham 3-0 last weekend, leaving the North London club with a lot to do to get back in to the Champions League qualification race. The victory also means that the Mancunian side are able to merely draw their game against Brendan Rodgers’ side and stay in the top four.
Carragher said: “It’s a huge game historically but you would want these games deciding league titles, FA Cups and other trophies really, but it’s always a big game and always will be. I fancy Liverpool with the form that they are in but Manchester United did play really well last week.
“I just think it being at Anfield, and watching Liverpool beat Man City there a couple of weeks ago, if they put in the same performance they may just shade it, 2-1.”
