The 202nd edition of the North West Derby will take place on Sunday at Old Trafford, where Manchester United will host rivals Liverpool. The reverse fixture was a spectacular one and Liverpool won it 3-1 thanks to a double from Xherdan Shaqiri after Jesse Lingard cancelled out Sadio Mane's opening goal. That was the first and only victory for the Reds in the last six direct matches in all competitions, while Manchester United also collected just one victory in those last six games. The last time Liverpool won at Old Trafford was in 2014, when Steven Gerrard scored twice in a 3-0 victory. Overall, Manchester United have won the derby 80 times, while Liverpool have won it on 66 occasions.
Manchester United have finally lost their first match under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Paris Saint-Germain defeated them 2-0 at Old Trafford in the Champions League, but they recovered with a 2-0 victory at Chelsea in the FA Cup six days later. The Red Devils have broken into the Premier League top four and they are one point ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea. Their last Premier League match was a comfortable 3-0 victory at Fulham, with two goals from French midfielder Paul Pogba. Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian are injured, while Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial are doubts.
Liverpool have won just two of their last five matches in all competitions, but they have not lost a game since the 2-1 defeat at Wolverhampton in the FA Cup at the beginning of January. The Reds have recorded a goalless draw at home against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League this week, while their last Premier League result was a 3-0 victory over Bournemouth. They are currently second in the Premier League table, but they are tied on 65 points with Manchester City and have a game in hand, so they would be the new leaders if they leave Old Trafford unbeaten. Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez remain sidelined, along with Alex Oxlade Chamberlain.
Man United: De Gea - Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw - Pogba, Matic, Herrera - Mata - Rashford, Lukaku
Liverpool: Alisson - Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson - Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Milner - Salah, Firmino, Mane
My prediction: 1-1 draw, it should be an intense match between two solid teams.
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
Man United win - 3.00
Draw - 3.50
Liverpool win - 2.25

Yeah I agree with your prediction there Johnny, it's tough to pick a winner in this one and when we know how many of their last meetings ending in a draw it seems to be the more likely score.
Would it be curious if United can stop Liverpool on their way to title although the alternative of City becoming a champions is not great for United either.
I think it could be a scoreless draw but I hope to be 2-2 or why not even a 3-3 tie.
