Man Utd v Liverpool – why Reds will go to Old Trafford and win – Danny Murphy

Danny Murphy joins Darren Fletcher and Mark Chapman at Old Trafford on Sunday for highlights of Manchester United v Liverpool on MOTD2 at 22:30 BST on BBC One and the BBC Sport website.

When they play Manchester United on Sunday, Liverpool will play the same way that they always do, because they don’t change that for anybody.

That means their standard 4-3-3 formation, and playing on the front foot at Old Trafford – trying to win the game, like they do every week.

United are not playing with any confidence at the moment, and do not have great firepower either, so from Liverpool’s perspective this is a real opportunity.

Whoever is fit for United, I think their mindset is a little bit fearful at the moment, and Liverpool will know that they might be edgy.

So they can go after United, to probe them and test them, and try to win the ball high up the pitch.

If Liverpool’s intensity is as high as it usually is when they do that, then they are going to cause United a lot of problems.
