Man United: Not much to play for, really. But it’s a rivalry match, so that means something. Expect the Red Devils to set up a strong line-up for this as this is the most challenging game of the league match season, but don’t be shocked if some players rest with one eye on the Europa League final on May 26.
Liverpool: Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to Arsenal on Wednesday really opened an opportunity for the Reds here. With two games in hand, they essentially have the chance to draw within a point if they win those two games. That makes for a wild race to the finish, but it feels like a win is needed here to really have a chance. Expect the Reds to focus on their defense first as it’s lack of consistency, and dealing with United’s speed will be key.
The Reds take advantage of the advantage, but the defense cannot hold on when it needs it most. Choose: Liverpool 1, Man United 1
