Few victories have felt as pivotal this season, as the Reds overcame a 1-0 deficit to secure a crucial win at the Britannia Stadium.
There is still over a month of the season remaining, but current evidence would suggest Liverpool will be playing Champions League football next season.
United are seen as 18 per cent, although a potentially easy run to Europa League glory works in their favour.
Since the 3-1 loss to Leicester City last month, Liverpool have quietly gone on a decent run of form, winning four of their last six matches and going unbeaten in that time.
The only disappointing result was the draw at home to Bournemouth, and this current run can only bode well for the rest of the season.
Saturday’s win at Stoke was as ugly as it gets, but grinding out victories is a great skill to have at the business end of the season.
The same website projects Liverpool will end the season on 76 points – which would be 16 more than last season.
