Paul Ince is tipping Manchester United to come out on top in a five-goal thriller against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

The Merseyside outfit have only managed to win one of their last seven games in all competitions to stunt their progress in the Champions League and the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are seven points behind current leaders Manchester City and Manchester United following a run of one win in their last four Premier League games.

Manchester United have won six of their opening seven Premier League games and their only setback was a 2-2 draw with Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium last month.

The Red Devils have scored 21 goals and kept six clean sheets to help Jose Mourinho’s side to keep pace with title rivals Manchester City at the top of the table.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United midfielder Ince is tipping the Red Devils to ease to a 3-2 win against their traditional rivals at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

“The way these two teams are playing, especially this season, with all-out attack, there’s got to be plenty of goals in it,” Ince told the Daily Express.

“I think it depends on how Jose Mourinho sets up his team, but if they can capitalise on some of the mistakes that Liverpool’s defence will certainly make, it’s probably just about theirs for the taking.”

Liverpool finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season and two spots above Manchester United.

The Red Devils won the EFL Cup and the Europa League under Mourinho last season.
