Manchester United :(4-4-2)

Goalkeeper : De Gea

Defenders : Blind, Smalling, Bailly, Young.

Midfielders : Herrera, Matic, Mata, Mkhitaryan.

Forwards : Rashford, Lukaku.

My Score Prediction :

Liverpool 2-2 Manchester United

Though the hosts for struggling to find a win in recent times and are ending up with draws, if the Merseyside outfit can create something at home, they might be able to once again take something back from the game. A lot of goals are expected in the match, with both teams known for their strong attack.

On one hand, Mourinho will want to keep winning games and put the pressure back on City, who will face Stoke later in the day. On the other hand, Klopp will want to get back to winning ways and will hope that his team can deliver when it matters.

Eventually, they may both cancel each other out and it could end in a 2-2 draw, with both team taking home a share of the spoils and in turn handing the advantage to Pep Guardiola’s side, if they can get the job done on the night against the Potters at home.
