Jamie Redknapp states his prediction for Liverpool v Man United

Jamie Redknapp is expecting to see Liverpool beat Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday lunchtime

Jamie Redknapp is expecting Liverpool to make home advantage count when the Reds host Manchester United in Sunday’s crunch Premier League clash at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s side head into the game after having played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Arsenal on Merseyside on Wednesday, as Joe Allen’s late equaliser rescued a point for the Reds.

United were also forced to settle for a 3-3 draw on Tuesday night as they were twice pegged back by Newcastle United at St James’ Park.

Former Liverpool man Redknapp is expecting to see an open game at Anfield on Sunday but is ultimately tipping the home side to come out on top and heap further misery on Louis van Gaal’s struggling United side.

Redknapp told Sky Sports: “This game will kick-off at 150mph, everyone will be so fired up. Key players need to make the difference.

“I predict Liverpool will just come out on top and secure an important win for Klopp and the development of his team.

“We can’t get too excited about where they are right now – despite their performance against Arsenal, they are prone to strange performances and strange results.

“But a win over their rivals will be a big moment for them – and another blow for Van Gaal and United.”
