Manchester United will host Liverpool at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday.

United enter the clash against their fierce rivals on the back of a 3-2 win over Atalanta in the Champions League, coming from two goals behind to claim their first win in the competition this season — a must needed confidence boost after United's 27-game unbeaten away run in the Premier League came undone in a 4-2 defeat to Leicester City last weekend.

United will be looking for their first win over Liverpool in the Premier League since March 2018, but it won't be an easy task, with Liverpool having scored three or more goals in every away game in all competitions so far this season.

United haven't won at home in the Premier League since Cristiano Ronaldo's debut in September against Newcastle, so a win against their fiercest rivals will be the perfect confidence boost for the rest of the season.

Marcus Rashford hobbled off against Atalanta with a dead leg, but Ole Gunnar Solskjer is confident the winger will be fit for the clash against Liverpool.

Fred also suffered an injury against Atalanta midweek but should be fit for Sunday, while Antony Martial and Raphael Varane are still both unavailable after picking up injuries for France during the international break.

So, what line-ups will both sides go for? And, what will the final score be? We used FIFA 22 to get a score prediction.

Man United vs Liverpool score predicted using FIFA 22

We used kick-off mode in FIFA 22, but didn't select a team to control, we then selected the teams and watched the match play out by itself, to give us a score prediction.

We predict that United could set up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with the line-up as follows: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo.

And we reckon that Jurgen Klopp's side could set up in a 4-3-3 formation, with the line-up as follows: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mane.

United struggled to find a foothold in the opening stages of the game, but when you have Ronaldo in your side there's always a chance for a goal, and it was the Portuguese talisman who gave United the lead 20 minutes in.

Liverpool dominated the beginning of the match at Old Trafford, but a lovely Fernandes pass to Ronaldo found the Portuguese striker in the Liverpool final third before he struck a powerful effort from the edge of the box into the top left corner, leaving Alisson with no chance.

David Dea Gea made some top saves at the other end to deny Mohamed Salah on a couple of occasions, and United took their lead into half-time.

Unfortunately for Solskjaer's side, the visitors were in full control once again as the second half got under way, and the visitors found their equaliser 15 minutes after the restart through Sadio Mane.

Trent-Alexander Arnold played some nice exchanges with Jordan Henderson and Salah before making his way towards goal, and his threaded through ball found the run of Mane who dinked an effort over Dea Gea and into the top corner, with the chip seeming to confuse De Gea who dove early.

Liverpool then made it 2-1 three minutes later, with Roberto Firmino finding the net.

Mane was proving a handful to the United backline, and the Senegal winger picked up the ball with his back to goal, spun past Maguire and as De Gea took a step towards the winger, he unselfishly squared it to Firmino who blasted into the roof of the net from close range.

United couldn't handle the Liverpool pressure, and the Reds got their third goal in seven minutes, with Firmino scoring again.

Salah managed to squeeze past Luke Shaw and Maguire before sending a cross in towards substitute Naby Keita, but another strong block by De Gea denied the midfielder.

Unfortunately for the 'keeper, his save fell into the path of Firmino, and the Brazilian had the simple job of tapping into an empty net to put the visitors two in front.

Liverpool had more chances to get another, but a wonderful goalkeeping display from De Gea kept the score to 3-1 as the full-time whistle blew.

FIFA 22 predicts that Ronaldo will open the scoring with a wonderful strike in the first half, but De Gea's heroics aren't going to be enough to keep Liverpool at bay, as a Mane goal and Roberto Firmino brace see the Reds win 3-1 at Old Trafford.

The successor to FIFA 21, FIFA 22, will be released in the UK and worldwide on Friday, October 1, 2021.
