Tomorrow will witness one of the pivotal quarter-final matches of the FA Cup, where Manchester United will visit Liverpool.

For the Merseyside club, this match presents an excellent opportunity to continue their journey in the FA Cup and strive to claim yet another trophy. The team undoubtedly aims to make Jürgen Klopp's final season extraordinary and pursue victory in all possible competitions. In February, they already clinched the Football League Cup, currently sit in second place in the Premier League, and have confidently progressed to the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

For Manchester United, however, this tournament represents their sole chance to secure victory in any competition this season.

Leading up to the match, former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has offered his prediction. According to him, Klopp's men will "destroy" Manchester United with a scoreline of 5-0. Speaking on The Counter Attack podcast, the ex-Liverpool defender stated:

"I don't think Manchester United will get a result on Sunday. Obviously, when I was at Liverpool, I never felt we were so superior to Manchester United. When I played, it was more 50/50, and sometimes United was the better team.

It's still a tough game for Liverpool, but I really think they will win. Manchester United actually play worse at Old Trafford than when they play away – it's not the same as it used to be when I played. I would like Liverpool to win convincingly here – I think it will be 5-0. Right now they are scoring so many goals, and their attack is as good as it has been all season. I would love a big result – primarily for Liverpool, but also for Jurgen Klopp."

Jose Enrique represented Liverpool from 2011 to 2016, during which time he contributed to winning the Football League Cup in 2012.
