Jurgen Klopp’s team enters this affair coming off a 1-0 win against Napoli on Tuesday that secured their Champions League qualification. Mohamed Salah’s first-half strike gave Liverpool the shutout win over Napoli one game after he went off four a hat trick against Bournemouth last Saturday. Salah struck once before half-time and twice after it against Bournemouth.

United were already guaranteed a last 16 berth but needed to win and to see Juventus lose if they were to take the top spot.

Expert Analysis and Prediction
Manchester United has not lost in five matches against Liverpool dating back to 2016 with three matches taking place at Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium. United beat Liverpool 2-1 in October following a quartet of draws in each of their previous four matches. Unfortunately, that past history won’t matter as Liverpool is now the better team at both ends of the pitch.
26-year-old Mohamed Salah is now the joint top-scorer in the Premier League on 10 goals, alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. While he failed to find the back of the net against United last season and Liverpool haven’t scored at home against United in the league since March 2015, I’m expecting things to be different this time around for both, Salah and Liverpool.
