Liverpool: Lawro Predicts Man Utd Result

Liverpool: Lawro Predicts Man Utd Result

What scoreline has former Reds defender Mark Lawrenson plumped for in the latest edition of his prediction feature?...

Ex-Liverpool centre-back turned media pundit Mark Lawrenson has expressed his thoughts ahead of his old sides short trip to arch rivals Manchester United on Sunday.

Writing in his regular 'Lawro Predicts' column for the BBC, the 55-year-old expects Liverpool to slip to a narrow defeat against the league leaders.

Here's what he had to say in full...

"This is a massive fixture for both clubs, and the start of a period that will be an acid test for Liverpool - they also play Arsenal and Manchester City away in the next three weeks.

"Everybody knows that teams can score against Manchester United, but everybody also knows they come back at you, create chances and score goals.

"You also have to remember the Reds have not beaten anyone above them in the league this season, so it is probably Brendan Rodgers's most difficult game since he took over.

"Whatever he does, Luis Suarez is going to get a lot of stick from the home fans and, if he doesn't have a great day, then I don't know where Liverpool's goals are going to come from.

"That's why I would lean towards United. They are running away with the league at the moment and look full of confidence at home."

Lawro's prediction: 2-1
