John Barnes and Andy Gray predict Liverpool v Manchester United

Paisley Gateway

Liverpool and Manchester United will face each other at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

John Barnes has predicted on Titanbet.co.uk that Liverpool will win against Manchester United at home on Sunday afternoon.

The Reds will take on United at Anfield in the Premier League, and former Liverpool winger Barnes expects the home team to register a 1-0 victory.

“This game’s always a tough one to call, but I think that with the Anfield crowd behind them Liverpool will have enough to edge out a Manchester United side that don’t score many goals,” the former Newcastle United star has written on Titanbet.co.uk. “Goalscorer – Christian Benteke.”

Former Aston Villa and Everton striker Andy Gray has also backed Liverpool to pick up all three points against the Red Devils.

“I think this will be a really exciting game,” the former Scotland international has written on Paddypower.com. “But I think Liverpool will win. At home, I think they’ll just have the better attack. Both defences are suspect. I’m calling a home win.

A footnote added: “Andy’s bet : Roberto Firmino to score and Liverpool to win 9/2.”

Liverpool will head into the game at Anfield on the back of a 3-3 draw with Arsenal at home.

Although the Reds failed to win against the Gunners at Anfield on Wednesday evening, their performance was encouraging.

The Merseyside outfit are struggling for wins at the moment, but Jurgen Klopp’s side will be up for the encounter against United.

Meanwhile, Louis van Gaal’s side will head into the match against Liverpool on the back of a 3-3 draw with Newcastle United away from home at St. James’ Park.

United’s defending against the Magpies left much to be desired, and they will find it tough against Liverpool.
