Lawrenson shares prediction
Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson has shared his prediction ahead of Sunday’s clash between Manchester United and Liverpool.
The two sides will go head-to-head on Sunday afternoon at Old Trafford in the Premier League, in what’s set to be a thrilling contest.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will be boosted by their midweek result against Atalanta, which could provide his team with some much-needed confidence.
Previewing Sunday’s fixture, Lawrenson said: “Manchester United’s performance to come back from 2-0 down against Atalanta and win 3-2 on Wednesday summed up what they are like under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. They can have spells where they are awful, as well as when they are very hard to stop.
“If United had been beaten then that would have been a bonus for Liverpool but, instead, both of them are on a high going into the weekend.
“There is probably more pressure on United to get a positive result, because they have dropped points in each of their past three league games, but a draw would not be a bad result for either camp and that’s what I’m going for.
“Liverpool won’t change the way they play – they can’t. The reason I think United will shut up shop is because, if they are open, you would fear the worst for them.”
