Pundits make their predictions
Michael Owen is no stranger to this fixture, having played for both Manchester United and Liverpool.
But he’s siding with the Anfield club when making his score prediction for BetVictor — tipping Klopp’s men for a 2-1 victory:
“For the second time in a week, old rivals Manchester United and Liverpool face-off. This time Old Trafford is the venue with a place in the quarter finals up for the grabs.
“With that in mind, we could see quite a change in line-ups and possibly tactics. Last week’s match was a highly tactical affair and out of the two teams, United would’ve probably been happier after 90 minutes.
“Now in the cup, I think this could pan out differently. With United at home, I don’t think they’ll be willing to give up as much territory to Liverpool as they did at Anfield. If that materialises and United truly have a go, it could leave the door wide open for Liverpool to capitalise on the counter.
“With that in mind, I reckon Liverpool will get through by the narrowest of margins.”
