Robbie Fowler has tipped Liverpool to secure a “big result” in the Premier League title race at Manchester United on Sunday.

The Reds are currently seven points behind leaders Chelsea ahead of their bid to win at Old Trafford for the first time since 2009.

On paper it’s a game Liverpool should win. They’re in great form and I am quietly confident Liverpool can get a big result there

Brendan Rodgers is yet to mastermind a win at any of the current top four since taking charge of Liverpool from Kenny Dalglish in May 2012.

But Fowler, who scored 183 goals for the Reds, is quietly confident that Liverpool can give their title chances a boost on Sunday.

“It’s always a massive game but the difference this time is that Liverpool must be favourites. I can’t remember the last time a Liverpool team went to Old Trafford in that position,” Fowler told Liverpool’s website.

“On paper it’s a game Liverpool should win. They’re in great form and I am quietly confident Liverpool can get a big result there. People talk about how far United have dropped but I also look at it from the other side – how far Liverpool have come.

“That’s testament to what Brendan has achieved so far. He has got the team playing so well and I think teams are starting to fear Liverpool again. The manager deserves a lot of credit for that.”
