Following United’s Champions League exit with a 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich, the team faces a significant challenge this weekend.

With captain Bruno Fernandes suspended and doubts surrounding Harry Maguire’s availability after a first-half injury against Bayern, manager Erik ten Hag is grappling with 13 potential absentees for the Anfield trip.

United, currently sixth in the league, are six points adrift of the top four, while Liverpool leads the Premier League table.

Merson, in his column for Sportskeeda, foresees a dominant performance from Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, predicting a 3-0 victory for the Reds.

Despite injury concerns like Alexis Mac Allister, Merson believes Liverpool will “rip them to shreds.”

“I expect Liverpool to rip them to shreds, so I’m going for a 3-0 home win,” wrote Merson.

“Alexis Mac Allister is a massive injury doubt, but Jurgen Klopp has a few options to choose from in midfield.

Wataru Endo has played a few games recently and Harvey Elliott’s cameos have been impressive, but I think Curtis Jones is someone who knows how big this game is, so I expect him to start at Anfield.”

Merson expresses confidence in his prediction for Liverpool vs.

United and emphasizes the challenge Ten Hag faces. Frustrated with United’s inconsistency, Ten Hag enters the Anfield clash after the Champions League disappointment, historically struggling at Anfield.

Merson doesn’t anticipate much from United and suggests that Ten Hag might be “throwing players onto the pitch” given their lackluster season while highlighting Liverpool as the league leaders with a crucial need for victory in the festive period.
