Liverpool have fallen off a cliff having won the Premier League title last season, and Jurgen Klopp's men are in danger of missing out on Champions League football next season. The Reds are currently sixth in the PL standings, four points off fourth-placed Chelsea when they travel to Old Trafford to face off against Manchester United. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United are meanwhile second and have virtually clinched their place in the Champions League next season. Furthermore, the Red Devils come on the back of an impressive 6-2 win against Roma at home and will hope to replicate the result on Sunday. The last meeting between the two sides in January saw Liverpool knocked out of the FA Cup, and Klopp's side will hope to bag revenge for the same. Our Man United vs Liverpool prediction is that the hosts will clinch a closely fought 2-1 win.
