Premier League Live Manchester United vs Liverpool: Prediction, team news, Probable Lineups, Head to head, MUN vs LIV Live Streaming details
Bitter rivals Manchester United and Liverpool will renew hostilities on Sunday when English football’s two most successful clubs face off at Old Trafford.
The hosts would effectively secure a top-four spot next season with victory over their greatest enemies, while Liverpool have a lot more work to do to clinch Champions League football themselves.

Manchester United will once again be without the injured Anthony Martial for this match, but long-term absentee Phil Jones is the only other player missing for Solskjaer’s side.
Edinson Cavani was arguably the standout performer of their win over Roma and should lead the line again this weekend. Mason Greenwood will be pushing for a start after coming off the bench to round off the Roma rout.
Cavani and Bruno Fernandes both netted twice in midweek and will not want to miss this game, while Marcus Rashford has scored four goals and assisted another in his last four games against Liverpool.
Manchester United Predicted Lineup:
Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Rashford, Fernandes, Pogba; Cavani
Mohamed Salah will be looking to become only the second Liverpool player – and the first in 100 years – to score away to Man United in two different games in a single season.
Diogo Jota will hope to add fresh impetus into that attacking trio once again, and Klopp could opt to name all four (Salah, Mane, Firminho, Jota) in his attack once more on Sunday.
Nat Phillips remains a major doubt due to a lingering hamstring issue, leaving Fabinho likely to fill in alongside Ozan Kabak at centre-back once again.
Liverpool Predicted Lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Kabak, Robertson; Thiago, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane; Jota
Given Man United’s track record of 0-0 stalemates this season, and Liverpool’s ongoing troubles in front of goal, it is tempting to predict another one for Sunday’s match.
However, while we do expect the spoils to be shared come the final whistle, we are hoping for a more entertaining showdown than the one we saw at Anfield in January.
Prediction: Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool
