The showpiece match of the Premier League TV schedule will see Manchester United take on Liverpool in a fiery showdown at Old Trafford.


United are under real scrutiny following a number of defeats in recent weeks across all competitions. They are winless in three Premier League matches, which is simply not good enough for a team in 'win-now' mode with Cristiano Ronaldo leading the line.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows that a victory here would not only thrust his team back into the title picture, but it would stave off the criticism directed his way once again – for a few weeks at least.

Liverpool are rampant right now with Mohamed Salah arguably the most in-form elite player in world football. He has scored in his last nine games across all competitions, against all levels of opposition.

He looks unstoppable right now and will provide United's wobbling backline with all kinds of issues. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Man Utd v Liverpool on TV and online.

Our prediction: Man Utd v Liverpool

My gut feeling is actually that this is exactly the type of game Manchester United will turn up and win given the pressure they're under.

It's hard to make the case for United on paper, however. Liverpool simply boast enough firepower to put any team to the sword.

They have defeated AC Milan, Porto and Atletico Madrid and scored 11 goals in those three matches. That is a simply outrageous show of force, and their prowess goes beyond Mohamed Salah.

It's hard to see anything other than a couple of goals for the Reds at Old Trafford, but I'm going to cave into my gut feeling somewhat. United still boast big-game players among their squad.

I fancy a combination of Bruno Fernandes, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mason Greenwood, even Paul Pogba to contribute to a hard-fought draw here.

Our prediction: Man Utd 2-2 Liverpool (11/1 at bet365).
