Paul Merson, former Arsenal, Aston Villa player, has predicted winner of Liverpool vs Man United Premier League clash on Sunday.
Merson was totally unimpressed with United’s 2-1 defeat to Valencia in the Champions League on Wednesday night and expects them to suffer another defeat at Armfield.
Liverpool went above Manchester City with a win over Bournemouth last weekend with Chelsea defeating Pep Guardiola’s side.
Merson is fully expecting Liverpool vs Man United to be a roll over at home, predicting a 2-0 win, although he believes the Reds will face a new type of pressure now that they are the frontrunners in the Premier League title race.
He told sky Sports: “I’d be shocked if Liverpool doesn’t get a result, probably like the rest of the nation! I watched United on Wednesday night, and oh my God.
“They play under pressure week in, week out. You wouldn’t understand the pressure they are playing under as Manchester United players.
“They then go to Valencia, a chance for them to express themselves, with nothing to lose, against nowhere near one of the best Spanish teams in the league.
“Go and express yourselves! And what happened? Oh my God.
“I just cannot see where United win this football match. But that isn’t to say there isn’t huge pressure on Liverpool too, as they have to stay in front. It’s a different pressure now they are top.”
