Jamie Carragher is confident Liverpool will continue their astonishing winning sequence and beat Manchester United convincingly at Anfield on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp’s table toppers have been relentless this season, dropping just two points from their first 21 games of the Premier League campaign.

Liverpool required a late Adam Lallana goal to maintain their unbeaten record at Old Trafford earlier this season, while Carragher believes United’s recent victory at Manchester City should serve as a warning to his former club.

Jose Mourinho frustrated Liverpool on their own patch on several occasions during his tenure, but Carragher is anticipating a more open encounter this weekend and that will suit Klopp’s relentless winning machine.

‘I am confident Liverpool will win the game. Mourinho, in his first couple games at Anfield with United, made it really difficult for Liverpool,’ Carragher told Sky Sports.

‘But in the last one Liverpool really dominated and came out on top in Mourinho’s final game at United.

‘I think Ole is not quite as pragmatic as Mourinho, so I don’t see it being a shut-out kind of game, and I think the tactic for United will be very similar to what it was against Manchester City in December, playing deep and trying to hit on the counter-attack.

‘They were absolutely devastating that day, and if they produce a similar sort of performance, Liverpool could have major problems.

‘But there is a gulf between the two clubs, and if Liverpool play anywhere near what they are capable of, they will come out on top.

‘I’m confident of a Liverpool win. I think 3-1 Liverpool. And if that is the score, we’ve got the pundit-camera on us in the commentary box, and hopefully we’ll see similar scenes to what we saw at Old Trafford when Adam Lallana got the equaliser!’
