Lawro's predictions: Man Utd v Liverpool , published at17:23 22 October
Mark Lawrenson takes on Elena Cole and Haydn Craven, stars of football drama Jamie Johnson, for the latest round of Premier League predictions.
Lawro's prediction: 1-1
Manchester United's performance to come back from 2-0 down against Atalanta and win 3-2 on Wednesday summed up what they are like under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. They can have spells where they are awful, as well as when they are very hard to stop.
If United had been beaten then that would have been a bonus for Liverpool but, instead, both of them are on a high going into the weekend.
There is probably more pressure on United to get a positive result, because they have dropped points in each of their past three league games, but a draw would not be a bad result for either camp and that's what I'm going for.
Liverpool won't change the way they play - they can't. The reason I think United will shut up shop is because, if they are open, you would fear the worst for them.
Elena's prediction: United to win it, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring the winner in the last minute. 1-0
Haydn's prediction: I'm going with United but we've got to keep a clean sheet. That's a big ask with Mohamed Salah playing the way he is for Liverpool. His goals against Manchester City and Watford were just beautiful. 2-0
Haydn's favourite Manchester United player: I think Edinson Cavani is brilliant, with his work-rate he puts in. His movement is so good. I do like Scott McTominay too, although he is going through a bit of a dodgy patch at the moment. I'm a defensive midfielder myself, and I actually used to model my game on Ander Herrera when he played for United, because of his passion and, again, his work-rate. The best ever was Xavi, though.

Winning your battles - what the stats show about Man Utd, published at16:50 22 October
Andrew Bassett, BBC Sport data analyst
Following the heavy defeat to Leicester City and the criticism aimed at Manchester United’s lack of fight, I wanted to put some numbers on the performance to gauge what went wrong.
As a team Leicester City outran United by a significant margin, with 110km of distance covered compared to 105km, which probably isn’t a surprise to anyone who watched the match.
When pundits talk about ‘winning your battles’, we can put a figure on it by duels won. This is a measure of which team won the 50/50 contests during a match. It’s a simple but effective way to quickly understand if one side came out on top in that area.
Last Saturday was a good example of this; United’s duels won figure went from 46% in the first half to 37% in the second. In short, Leicester came out on top in the second half by winning nearly two-thirds of the duels, making their dominance count with three goals in the final 15 minutes to win the game.
What’s worrying for United is this is no one-off. United have the joint lowest duels won figure in the league this season, with 47% from their eight matches so far.
I’d be surprised if this wasn’t a talking point when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer preps his side ahead of Liverpool’s visit to Old Trafford on Sunday.
I'll always back Cristiano - Solskjaer, published at15:41 22 October
Bill Rice, BBC Radio Manchester
"Massive" is the word Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer used to describe Sunday's game against Liverpool, which he says doesn't need bigging up due to the history and the rivalry between the two clubs.
He was asked about whether Liverpool's Mo Salah is now the best player in the world, or whether United forward Cristiano Ronaldo still has the edge.
"I'll always back Cristiano in any competition, he is unique. His goalscoring record has been fantastic, and he keeps on scoring. That being said, Salah is at the moment on fire, we know we have to be at our best to defend against him," Solskjaer said.
"Players like this don't come around very often, and we've got to enjoy them when we watch them - from afar - not on Sunday, that's too close for me," he added.
The United boss also warned it's not just Salah they need to worry about on Sunday.
"I'm a big admirer of the front line they have had for many years now, with Mane and Firmino, Jota as well. They are players you have to focus at, and you have got to be nailed on for 95 minutes to keep a clean sheet," he added.
However, some have suggested that United's tactics do not play to the 36-year-old's strengths, which has contributed to their recent run of inconsistent results.
“This United team still has issues, whether Ronaldo starts or not," said French sports journalist Julien Laurens.
“If you want to press for 90 minutes with a lot of high intensity runs, this is not your guy, so don’t bring him to your club.
“If you decide to bring him in, then play on his strengths, and if you use him that way then you know he is going to win you matches, which goes back to the coaching issue. This team is not coached maybe the way it should be.
"They certainly wouldn’t be in the position they are in without Ronaldo because he has bailed them out a few times already."
