Five reasons Manchester United will defeat Liverpool

Liverpool legend explains why Jurgen Klopp will end Man United’s unbeaten run

Two goals from Juan Mata piled misery onto Liverpool, and United ran out 2-1 victors. We dominated our opponents in nearly all of the matches, and were the better side.

Brazilian duo Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho return to Liverpool training ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with high-flying Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho manager of Manchester United and Jurgen Klopp manager of Liverpool argue on the touchline the Premier League match between Manchester United and Liverpool at Old Trafford on January 15, 2017 in Manchester, England.

The former Liverpool and Manchester United midfielder is expecting the Red Devils to soak up the pressure for the first 20 minutes and potentially hit the Jurgen Klopp's side on the counter.

Despite only just returning from a domestic suspension, following his nasty collision with Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson, Mané has now been ruled out for six weeks after picking up an injury whilst on international duty.

And Klopp will be looking to turn around a poor record in both early kickoffs and in games directly after the international break since his arrival on Merseyside in 2015. "We just trust the players that are going to help".

Yet the mood must be bullish after the excellent start to the campaign and, if De Gea can keep another clean sheet, there is every hope we can do the job at the other end this time around.

Liverpool's' recent form is worrisome.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has leapfrogged Everton's Ronald Koeman as favourite to be the next managerial casualty after his side's woeful start.

"He can answer those doubters who are saying 'well they've not played anyone yet' and he knows that".

"We tried everything, only with the wrong tools tonight", he said. For while Klopp is a coach with a fine record against the best teams, in part that is because Pep Guardiola and Arsene Wenger want to dominate the ball.
