TalkSPORT duo Alan Brazil and Ally McCoist have serious doubts that Manchester United can beat Liverpool on Sunday.

The host, Brazil, claimed that he can not see the Red Devils picking up a result when they face Jurgen Klopp’s side at Old Trafford due to form that sees them sitting two points above the relegation zone at this moment in time.

McCoist went on to admit that he doesn’t believe any of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side would get into Liverpool’s team this season, claiming the Reds just have better players than their next opponents.

“I think form goes out of the window in a game like that,” Brazil said on talkSPORT.

“Can I see United beating Liverpool? No, I can’t.”

McCoist responded to the radio host and compared the two sides that the managers have available to them for the game.

“Alan, look at the two teams,” he said.

“Liverpool have got better players, simple. Clearly there will be occasions when the better team doesn’t win… but would any Man United players get in the Liverpool team?”


One simple look at the table will tell you how these two teams are performing going into Sunday’s game at Old Trafford. Manchester United are struggling and could end the weekend in the relegation zone should they lose and other results go against them. The Reds have been phenomenal in all departments so far this season, and will go into this game full of confidence knowing that should they perform to their highest standard, they will most likely walk away with all three points. Liverpool have the best defensive record in the league so far, alongside the second deadliest attack, and could punish their fierce rivals should they be at the top of their game. Sky pundit Danny Mills probably said it best when he didn’t put one single United player in the combined XI.  Liverpool are the only side with a perfect record intact in the top-flight, and their eight-point gap at the top of the table clearly proves they have a better squad than their next opponents, but they must not get ahead of themselves.
