What's the news?

Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, believes that his former side will beat Liverpool at the Old Trafford on Sunday.

In case you didn't know...

Two of the most successful teams in England, Liverpool and Manchester United, will go up against each other in the Premier League later today. Both teams are in a good form at the moment and will be looking forward to securing all three points in order to strengthen their bids to fulfill their objective.

The Reds are aiming for their first Premier League title since 1990 and are currently second in the Premier League table. They are equal on points with leaders Manchester City but have a game in hand.

On the other hand, Manchester United are currently fourth in the Premier League table and have revived their season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, after witnessing a poor start of the campaign under former coach Jose Mourinho.

The heart of the matter

Speaking to Betfair(via Mirror), Berbatov believes that his former team has a cutting edge to beat Liverpool.

He said:

"I'm expecting a tight game, as these clashes usually are."

"With United in such confident mood and Paul Pogba at the peak of his powers, I think they can edge it and blow the title race wide open."

He further added:


"Liverpool had a tough game against Bayern Munich during the week and with United buzzing after the Chelsea win, I just think Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer's men will have a bit too much on the day."

"This would be good news for Spurs, who are still in title contention in my opinion, and welcome Harry Kane back to the fold against Burnley this week.

What's next?

With 38 league titles between them, Manchester United vs Liverpool is considered as one of the biggest rivalries in world football.

Liverpool dominated the Red Devils when both teams meet each other last time in December but things have changed a lot since then and we can expect a completely different game when they face-off against each other later today.
