Premier League

I can see under-pressure Manchester United beating Liverpool - Jamie Carragher

Man United's Champions League comeback could help them beat unbeaten Liverpool at Old Trafford on Super Sunday, according to Jamie Carragher.

United came back from two goals down to beat Atalanta 3-2 on home turf on Wednesday night, in a game that appeared like it would end their chances of staying in the competition when Merih Demiral scored the Italians' second goal with barely half an hour gone.

An electric atmosphere helped United complete a stunning second-half turnaround and relieve some pressure on under-fire manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, something Jamie Carragher told the Essential Football Podcast could play a part in Sunday's game.

He said, "I could see Man United winning this game." "I believe the atmosphere will be fantastic, especially at the start of the game, as a result of what happened on Wednesday night."

"Man United have had Liverpool's number in the fixture for the last 10 or 15 years at home versus Liverpool." It's always been difficult for Liverpool to win at the Threatre of Dreams, and even the best Liverpool teams have struggled there.

"Even in Jurgen Klopp's time, I think he only won there once, so it will always be a difficult game for Liverpool, regardless of the conditions or Man United's strength."

"However, there's no doubt that Liverpool are the better team coming into the game." They've shown that in recent years and at the start of this season, and if Liverpool perform well, that could be enough to win.

Even if they win this game, it will be a nail-biter. Man United have fantastic players, they're playing at home in front of a great atmosphere against a team that has a poor record at this venue."
