Craig Bellamy is tipping Manchester United to beat Liverpool despite admitting he hates going against his former club.

The Red Devils head to Anfield in a rich vein form following a return of 19 points from their opening seven games in the Premier League.

Manchester United have scored 21 goals and have six clean sheets in the 2017-18 season so far to underline their title credentials.

Mourinho’s men haven’t faced a top-six team in the Premier League so far, although the Red Devils were 4-0 winners against Everton.

Liverpool’s best result was a 4-0 victory over top-four rivals Arsenal, although Klopp’s side lost 5-0 to Premier League leaders Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last month.

The Merseyside outfit played out a goalless draw with Manchester United at Anfield last season before a 1-1 stalemate with the Red Devils at Old Trafford.

Former Liverpool striker Bellamy admitted that he expects Manchester United to secure a narrow win at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

“Manchester United just edge it for me if I’m going to pick a favourite and a team to win it,” Bellamy told The Debate on Sky Sports on Wednesday night.

“It’s so difficult to say as a Liverpool supporter.”

Liverpool finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to secure a place in the Champions League.

Manchester United won the EFL Cup and the Europa League in their first season under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils finished in sixth spot in the Premier League.
