The second and third placed English clubs will be involved in a massive game on Saturday morning, with United only above Liverpool in the table by two points.
A draw may suit United, as it would mean they can decide their own fate in finishing second. However, a loss would see Liverpool go above them by a point.
"I always fancy United at home," he told Sky Sports.
"With Liverpool you have to get through that first half an hour, especially at Anfield, where they are a completely different proposition.
"I've always thought that for Liverpool away from home they struggled with the size of the pitch, despite them not being hugely different on paper.
"It's a lot harder for United to play at Anfield and a lot harder for Liverpool to play at Old Trafford, so I fancy United to win.
