Liverpool will end Manchester United's unbeaten run, says John Barnes

Tony Coton says that if Manchester United beat Liverpool on Saturday, then their standing as title contenders will strengthen.

Jose Mourinho is aiming to become the first manager to lead Manchester United to the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson's final campaign in charge in the 2012-13 campaign.

We have been imperious all season and travel to Anfield to take on a Liverpool side lacking in confidence but always turn up in the big games on form and paper, United are expected to win but Jurgen Klopp has an edge on Jose Mourinho all through their managerial battles from Dortmund to Real Madrid to Chelsea.

Writing in his column for the Liverpool Echo, Aldridge said: "This weekend's game is a big one, with a lot riding on it".

The former Everton star has netted seven times in as many Premier League games, while Matic has commanded United's midfield.

Some may not want to hear Christian Purslow talk too much about Liverpool, but the former chief executive of Merseyside's finest went on record to glowingly speak about J├╝rgen Klopp ahead of a huge game at home to Manchester United.

Bonath was not clear about when the counseling center called police. The Texas Tech officer was killed by a student Monday night. He had the body camera and a handgun, Bonds wrote.


'Why I think Liverpool will win this is because of what they have demonstrated against all of the top five teams, apart from Manchester City when they went down to ten men and lost 5-0, ' Barnes told talkSPORT.

The likes of Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini are out of the game but that gives last season's Player of the Season, Ander Herrera who has struggled to make a mark on the team this season.

And Barnes is confident Liverpool will prevail, suggesting United's apparent need to go all-out attack - despite Mourinho's reputation as a pragmatist - is likely to work against them.

'They are very open, they are very attack-minded - whereby one team attacks and leaves the defence to defend for themselves.

In-form striker Romelu Lukaku should also be fully fit after missing Belgium's World Cup qualifier against Bosnia and Herzegovina with an ankle problem.
