Robbie Fowler states his prediction for Liverpool v Man United
Robbie Fowler believes that Manchester United's priority against Liverpool FC will be "not to lose"
Robbie Fowler believes that Manchester United will set up “not to lose” at Anfield in their crunch clash with Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime.
The Red Devils head into the game looking to continue their fine start to the new season under Jose Mourinho, with his side having only dropped points in one Premier League game so far this term.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are aiming to find some consistency in the top flight under Jurgen Klopp, with the Reds having only won three of their opening seven games so far.
With Liverpool playing at home in front of their own fans, the onus will be on Klopp’s side to take the initiative and try and beat Mourinho’s side.
However, former Reds striker Fowler reckons that Manchester United will set things up to contain Liverpool on Saturday and that Mourinho’s priority will be avoiding defeat against the Merseyside outfit.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Fowler said: “Mourinho will have a game plan.
“I think they will be slightly more adventurous than last season but his priority will be not to lose. He will sit back and be compact and look to counter attack.”
Manchester United are aiming to challenge for the Premier League title this season after the Red Devils ended up in sixth place in the table last term.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are also aiming to step up their form in the top flight after they ended up fourth in the Premier League table last season.
