A run of 11 wins from 12 unbeaten matches domestically should worry Liverpool, who havent been at their best of late.
To make matters worse for the travelling fans, Liverpool have only won 1 of their last 4 Premier League away games against Big Six opposition. Even including Mourinhos ill-fated tenure, Manchester United have lost just 1 home game in the Premier League all season. In the Premier League that tally rises to 3 wins in 6 outings, but only 1 of these came away from home and a trip to Old Trafford will be far from easy at the moment.

Recent Competition Form
Since the coming of Ole Gunnar Solskjaers charge at Old Trafford, Manchesters star has been on the rise and has not lost any league match so far. Despite losing recently at Old Trafford to PSG at Old Trafford to 0-2 in their Champions League round of 16, Man U rose above the occasion to see off Chelsea on Monday to a 0-2 win in their FA Cup 5th round. With the last match between Liverpool and Manchester United ending Jose Mourinhos career at Old Trafford in December 2019, will they also spoil the party for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Manchester United?
They are banking on the swift Pogba who has tremendously improved since the coming of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Liverpool, on the other hand, is under pressure to be ahead of Manchester City who is at par with 65 points but has goal difference superiority but as well played one match more. However, we expect Manchester United to hold their ground and entertain their home fans to victory. They are not going to Liverpool spoil the party yet. The Red Devils expect to continue the party at Old Trafford as they revenge against Liverpool who beat them 3-1. Manchester United has come a long way this season.
This is a clash that could make or break their domestic campaign, and there is no team that wants to stop them more than their rivals from up the M62. Arch rivals Liverpool stand in their way on Sunday though. The visitors may have been knocked off the top spot by Manchester City, but they still have a game in hand on the current leaders and are desperate to lift their first ever Premier League title.
Although Liverpool have undoubtedly been the better team this season, Manchester United do look like a different animal under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and theyll be desperate to prevent their rivals from stealing a march in the title race here. Four of the last six meetings between these two great rivals have ended level at full-time and thats why were backing another draw here at 2/1 withPaddy Power. Its tough to call a winner in this game.
The Red Devils recorded eight wins in previous nine league fixtures and, as a result, they sit in top four in the Premier League standings. Man Utd recorded a routine 3-0 win at Fulham in their last league fixture and we predict that they are going to find the net in Sundays football game against Liverpool. Mohamed Salah, who scored his 17th goal of the season in the 3-0 win over the Cherries will be the man to watch in the away side and we believe that he is going to help the visitors find the net in the Premier League derby. The Reds, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Bournemouth and they managed to get one. Paul Pogba scored a brace in the triumph over Claudio Ranieris troops, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. There will be fireworks when Manchester United and Liverpool take on each other at Old Trafford on Matchday 27.
This has been enough to push them up into the top 4 too, and with Arsenal and Chelsea wilting it seems their hopes of Champions League qualification are back on. They have won 8 of their 9 league matches since Jose Mourinho departed, drawing the remaining game and accumulating the longest current unbeaten run in the top flight. Their Premier League form is second to none at the moment too.
For Liverpool this is a must win game if they want to keep the heat on Manchester City and not let their title challenge fade. In fact, it was this result that brought about the changes with Mourinho getting the boot and Solsjaer coming in, the Norwegian subsequently guiding them to just the one loss in his first 13-games. There might still be 14-points separating the two teams, however this United team will believe they can narrow that gap by a further three at Old Trafford, come the final whistle on Sunday. Much has changed at Manchester United since they were thrashed 3-1 by Liverpool in mid-December!
The away team on the other side, have failed to maintain the top ladder of the premier league table this season and this has made them sit on the second position of the table standings. They have however gone unbeaten in their last five games played in a row with 3 wins and 2 draws. They also kept a clean sheet of 3-0 against Bournemouth after a 1-1 draw in an away match to West Ham.
Liverpool will also be trying to prove they are superior over Manchester United this season. Their rivalry will extend to all times high if Manchester happens to be the ones to make Liverpool miss lifting the EPL cup this season. This coming Sunday will be a Super Sunday in the Premier League when Manchester United hosts their bitter rivals Liverpool at the Old Trafford. The match which is scheduled to start at 17.05GMT will see Manchester United trying to hamper Liverpools chances of lifting the title.
