Liverpool will beat Man United & keep clean sheet – ex-Reds boss

Former Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish thinks his old side will overcome bitter rivals Manchester United in Sunday’s top four crunch clash and keep the Red Devils from finding the back of the net.

The Reds are 2015’s form team in the Premier League and are yet to taste domestic defeat – aside from their League Cup exit to Chelsea in extra time – since the calendar flipped over.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have also won eight of their last nine games while eradicating the defensive issues that blighted the start of the campaign, with their last loss, ironically, the 3-0 defeat to United at Old Trafford.

And Dalglish believes his old side will maintain their form on Sunday:

“Liverpool are really organised defensively and if Manchester United don’t get hold of whoever plays off Daniel Sturridge – Philippe Coutinho, Raheem Sterling or Adam Lallana – at Anfield on Sunday, they will have a hard game in front of them.” He wrote in his column for The Mirror.

“That is why I’m predicting a Liverpool win – and I don’t think United will score either.”

Liverpool trail fourth placed United by two points and could leap above them into the Champions League qualification zone with a win at Anfield, but ‘King Kenny’ doesn’t believe that the result this weekend will decide who finishes in the sought-after place:

“Sunday’s result won’t be conclusive in terms of who finishes in the top four. But the psychology of winning could be a big factor, though.

“Who ends the match above the other lot in the table will be important, as they will have got one of their more difficult games in the run-in out of the way and have their noses in front.

“So, this game is obviously enormous for both teams.”
