Man Utd vs Liverpool: How to watch FA Cup quarter-final tie and predictions

Manchester United and Liverpool renew their rivalry on Sunday looking to book their place in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley.

The balance of power has shifted in the north west since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013, with Liverpool now seen as the dominant force in a rivalry both sides are determined to come out on top of.

The Reds are on course for an unprecedented quadruple and have already ticked off the first major trophy of the season – they beat Chelsea thanks to Virgil van Dijk’s late header to lift the Carabao Cup – and are well placed in the Premier League and Europa League.

Victory over United in the FA Cup would give Liverpool a great chance of achieving a domestic cup double at the very least, although history would suggest United have the greater chance of advancing.

United boss Erik ten Hag needs an impressive end to the season to ensure he leads the club forward under new minority owners INEOS, whereas Liverpool are hoping to give Jurgen Klopp the best possible send-off this summer after eight-and-a-half years at the helm.

The Red Devils’ indifferent form this season makes Liverpool the favourites to win at Old Trafford, even though they still have a raft of injuries to contend with.

The recent returns of Mohamed Salah and Dominik Szoboszlai, coupled with the emergence of Conor Bradley and Jarell Quansah, adds a different dynamic to Liverpool’s side, potentially nullifying the threat of Rasmus Hojlund, should he return from an injury of his own.

Expect a bit of needle and passion from both sets of players – it could be Liverpool who are over the line once it’s all said and done.

Prediction: Man Utd 1-3 Liverpool
