Craig Bellamy claimed that Liverpool need Philippe Coutinho or Mohamed Salah to do something special for Jurgen Klopp’s side to beat Manchester United on Saturday afternoon.

The Reds will welcome their bitter rivals to Anfield in the Premier League’s early kick-off following the return of top-flight action after the international break.

Liverpool have only managed to win one of their last seven games in all competitions to raise big questions about their title credentials.

The Reds made a brilliant start to the season following seven points from their opening three Premier League games.

Summer signing Salah was particularly impressive in a 4-0 victory over their top-four rivals Arsenal at Anfield.

Coutinho returned to the Liverpool side in a 3-2 win against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in their penultimate Premier League game in September.

Indeed, the Brazilian midfielder has scored in his last three outings including a wonder strike in a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United.

Former Liverpool striker Bellamy believes Coutinho or Salah need to produce a moment of magic if the Merseyside outfit are going to spring a surprise against Manchester United.

“I hope Salah or Coutinho can do something special because they’re going to need it,” Bellamy told The Debate on Sky Sports on Wednesday night.

Liverpool finished two places above Manchester United in the Premier League last season.
