That is the view of Sky Sports pundit and Manchester United academy graduate Danny Higginbotham.
Higginbotham is expecting a tight encounter but says Liverpool’s inability to keep a clean sheet will cost them tomorrow.
“I think it will be quite a close game.” he said.
“I think we will see Liverpool doing all the running.
“I think Manchester United, as we said before, I think they’ll be happy to sit back and play on the counter attack. I can’t see Liverpool keeping a clean sheet.

Danny Higginbotham on Liverpool vs Man Utd
“I fancy Manchester United to win this game on the counter attack, turn defence into attack really quickly and getting the win.”
Liverpool are without Sadio Mane through injury, with Marouane Fellaini missing for United.
Victory would take United three points clear of rivals Manchester City at the top.
But Higginbotham is backing the Cityzens to draw level by beating Stoke later in the day.

“Stoke City going to Manchester City is always going to be a tough task,” he added.
“Ryan Shawcross out, (Bruno) Martins Indi out, they haven’t won any of their three away games this season so it’s going to be a tough game.
“Manchester City are just dealing with anyone that comes their way.
"I think Stoke will give them a win, but I think Man City will get a home win.”
