Stan Collymore has predicted in the Bleacher Report that Liverpool will win the clash against Manchester United at Anfield in the Premier League today.
The Liverpool striker has gone for a narrow 1-0 victory for the Reds because of their defensive strength.
“I give Liverpool the edge on Sunday, particularly because they’ve been keeping a lot of clean sheets recently, but having watched, played and commentated on these games, I know they tend to be very close,” Collymore wrote in Bleacher Report. “I’ll go 1-0 Liverpool.”
Could Stan Collymore’s prediction come true?
Today’s match at Anfield will indeed be very closely fought, and Collymore’s prediction could well come true.
Liverpool are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League in 2015, and playing at home will only enhance their confidence of maintaining that proud record.
Brendan Rodgers’ side are defensively sound as well, but the way United dismantled Tottenham Hotspur last weekend should be a worry for the Merseyside outfit.
Against Spurs in the 3-0 victory at Old Trafford in the Premier League, the Red Devils showed that they can step up their game and bounce back from disappointment.
The first goal and the timing of it will be key today. If Liverpool score early, then they could well go on and win the game without too much of a problem.
