Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler believes his old club are favourites to beat Manchester United when the sides meet at Old Trafford at the weekend, according to the Express.
The Reds have not won on any of their last six trips to the home of their fierce rivals, but they go into Sunday’s clash with an eleven point lead over the current Premier League champions.
Liverpool secured their fifth win in seven league games this season by beating Crystal Palace 3-1 at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
The result was enough to see the Reds briefly return to the top of the Premier League, only to be again replaced by Arsenal following their draw at West Bromwich Albion yesterday afternoon.
Brendan Rodgers has taken a swipe at Arsenal over their pursuit of Luis Suarez, the Mirror has reported.
Last month, the Gunners lodged a bid of £40,000,001 for the Uruguay striker, believing that such a bid would trigger a release clause for the 26 year old striker who has repeatedly expressed a desire to move on this summer.
Liverpool’s Luis Suarez has accepted a charge of violent conduct from the Football Association in light of the Uruguayan striker’s bite on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in the 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday.
A three-match suspension usually follows such a charge, but given the severity of the incident, a longer ban is expected to be handed down following a meeting of a regulatory commission on Wednesday.
