And the former Arsenal defender feels the Reds will leave Anfield victorious on Sunday afternoon.
Indeed, Keown pointed to United's poor away form so far term - and believes Liverpool will beat Louis van Gaal's side.
Manchester United beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 last Sunday in what many feel was their best performance of the campaign so far. That result, however, came at Old Trafford, while the Reds are the form team of the Premier League in 2015.
He said: "Liverpool have a chance to finish United off, who have a terrible run-in and Louis van Gaal's men have been unconvincing away from home. If there are any flaws in United’s performance, they will be found out. Liverpool will win this one, for me."
Savage stopped short of predicting a Liverpool win but feels the Reds are the team to beat and were vindicated in their decision to stand by their manager earlier this season.
"For me, it will be all about United stopping Liverpool, not the other way round," Savage explained.
"Standing by Brendan Rodgers just before Christmas, when other boards might have panicked, is looking a smarter move by the day."
Liverpool host Manchester United on Merseyside at 1.30pm on Sunday afternoon. A huge clash awaits - one that will likely have a huge bearing on the the top-four fate of either side.
