Harry Redknapp is backing Liverpool FC to continue their strong start to the season by beating Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have established themselves as the firm favourites for the Premier League title this season after having won every single one of their eight games so far this term.

That incredible run has allowed the Reds to build an eight-point lead over closest challengers Manchester City as Klopp’s side look to go one step further than they did last season.

Manchester United, meanwhile, head into the game looking to bounce back from a poor start the season and a 1-0 loss to Newcastle United last time out.

However, former Tottenham manager Redknapp is not expecting Manchester United to be able to halt the Liverpool FC juggernaut this weekend.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Redknapp said: “Liverpool find themselves in a strong position, currently eight points clear of champions Manchester City, and their short trip to rivals United is arguably the pick of the matches.

“There is little love lost between these giants of the game but it shows how far the hosts have slipped when the Merseyside men arrive as odds-on favourites to take three points away from Old Trafford.

“The Red Devils were beaten 1-0 at Newcastle on their last outing and have picked up just the solitary point from three games with a win at home to Leicester the last time the faithful could celebrate maximum points, over a month ago .

“A lack of creativity has been the main reason they find themselves down in twelfth position and Paul Pogba will now join goalkeeper David De Gea in missing out on this weekend’s huge match through injury.

“They do have the boost of Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka being available again, but the squad still looks light.

“Liverpool will arrive confident but cautious that this always represents a tough challenge.

“With a clean bill of health, they know success on Super Sunday will keep them in the driving seat and put considerable pressure on the chasing pack.”

Liverpool FC missed out on the Premier League title by a single point last season but managed to win their first major trophy under Klopp by beating Tottenham in the Champions League final.

Manchester United, meanwhile, ended up in sixth place in the table and without a trophy under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
