BBC Sport football expert Chris Sutton has given his verdict on all four FA Cup quarter-finals.

For this weekend's games, he takes on Anna Friedberg and Emily Linden from alt-rock band Friedberg.

Sutton's prediction: 1-3

A friend of mine told me he thought Manchester United would win this tie. I told him not to be so stupid.

United have dug deep and got some good results against Liverpool in recent years - for example, they beat them 2-1 at Old Trafford at the start of last season, when I didn't give them a chance that day either.

I know United fans might be getting excited about their 0-0 draw at Anfield earlier this season too - with what felt like about 2% possession.

But Liverpool are getting key players like Mohamed Salah back to full fitness and if they turn up and perform like they did in the second half against Manchester City last weekend, then they are going to win - no doubt about it.

There is some good news for United because their striker Rasmus Hojlund is going to be back from injury, and starting the game by all accounts.

That is massive for them and gives them a far greater chance of getting through, but if Liverpool are anywhere near their best they will still have too much for them.

Anna and Emily's prediction: 1-3
