Former Liverpool manager Graeme Souness believes Liverpool’s title challenge will depend on how they perform against Manchester United. The Reds are scheduled to face United this Sunday.
Liverpool started this season very well but have lost their momentum a bit. The Reds failed to get past Plymouth in the FA Cup third round and also lost to Southampton in the EFL Cup semifinal.
Whereas the Red Devils have shrugged off their previous difficulties and have won their last six matches in the Premier League, United are currently in the sixth position with 39 points and are five points adrift of Liverpool who are second in the table.
Souness who played for the Merseyside club from 1978 to 1984 thinks if the Reds can get the better of United at Old Trafford they can revive their title challenge.
“Liverpool have to get firing on all cylinders again, and they’re playing against a United side who, without being a great watch, are grinding results out
“It’s always the case with United, if they get on a roll, momentum builds up and they will take some stopping.
“I would say that United are slight favourites with the home advantage and the momentum they’ve got right now, and the hiccups Liverpool have shown in the last few games.
“Right now, as a Liverpool supporter, I’d be taking top four, but I think if they go to United and turn them over, their tails will be up, the momentum will be with them, and then anything is possible.”
