Storylines

Manchester United: This could be the weekend where United officially wrap up a Champions League spot. A victory will likely all but cement their place in the competition next season, but it won’t come easy. Liverpool need a win badly after failing to win in their last two, so United can expect them to push forward in numbers. Look for United to try and capitalize on an average defense of the Reds by playing balls over the top, aiming to get their speedsters going, especially when Liverpool get forward with their fullbacks.

Liverpool: The Reds cannot afford anything else but a win here. A draw still could mean the end of their Champions League hopes as it would leave them six points back with four games to go. In order to get all three points, they have to find their footing in attack. They have scored multiple goals just once in their last seven league games. On the other side, United have scored in every league match but one since early March. The Reds know United will likely score, and that will only increase their urgency in the attacking third.

Prediction

Chances are hard to come by, but each finish one to split the points in a result that doesn’t do much for the Reds. Pick: Man. United 1, Liverpool 1
