Chris Sutton makes Liverpool PL prediction, Man United fans will hate this
By Will Butcher
Chris Sutton believes Liverpool will finish above Manchester United in the Premier League this season, despite their form since the turn of the year.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have won just two out of their eight league encounters this year, losing to the likes of Swansea, Hull and Leicester.
However, Sutton replied to a fan on his personal Twitter account, claiming that Liverpool’s blip is behind them and they will “get their act together” to finish above rivals Man United.
why do you think Liverpool will do better than Man Utd?

Remaining unbeaten since October, Jose Mourinho’s United are in sixth place but are just three points behind Liverpool with a game in hand.
Liverpool could gain an advantage from fighting in just one competition as a long 2016-17 campaign enters its final stages, while United remain in the FA Cup and Europa League.

Klopp’s side have an easier run in towards the end of the Premier League season too, facing just one team in the top six in their final 11 domestic outings in the shape of Man City on March 19.
United, though, still have Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City and Tottenham to play before the end of the season, and that could see Liverpool pull through as they look to hold on to a top four place.
The Reds play host to Burnley at Anfield on Sunday and could move six points clear of United with a win, as Mourinho’s side face Chelsea on Monday in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
