Gary Neville has tipped Manchester United to finish in second place ahead of Liverpool FC.

The Reds hoisted themselves above Manchester United and into second spot thanks to a 4-1 win over West Ham at Anfield on Saturday.

However, Jose Mourinho’s men responded with a second win in four games thanks to a 2-1 victory over defending champions Chelsea FC on Sunday.

Goals from Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard cancelled out Willian’s opener in the first half to secure a vital three points and allow Manchester United to reclaim second spot.

The Red Devils are two points ahead of Liverpool FC ahead of their Premier League meeting at Old Trafford on Saturday 10 March.

The 20-time English champions played out a goalless stalemate with Manchester United at Anfield back in October as Mourinho’s side were criticised for a negative performance.

However, former Manchester United defender Neville is confident the Red Devils will finish in runners-up spot ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s outfit.

“In the interesting game is the one we’ve got in a couple of weeks, the Manchester United-Liverpool game at Old Trafford,” Neville told his Sky Sports podcast.

“That will go a long way to deciding it but I think United will come out on top overall this season.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term and two places above their bitter rivals Manchester United.

However, the Red Devils won the Europa League and the League Cup, while Klopp is still waiting to win his first piece of silverware.
