Manchester United will go head-to-head with North West rivals Liverpool for the second time in the Premier League this season. Just under three months ago, United and Liverpool drew 0-0 at Anfield at a time where United had not been great in the league, winning four, drawing once and losing twice. Recently, United have come forward as a team in full throttle, winning their last nine matches in a row in all competitions, six of those in the Premier League. Their undefeated streak has lasted 15 matches since their last defeat; in the Europa League against Fenerbahce.

United and Liverpool have an unrivaled history; both being successful – both domestic and on the European stage during their history. United, though, are the team in the hot seat right now being that they have not been beaten by Liverpool, home or away, in the Premier League for the past two seasons which has stemmed five matches so far. Liverpool’s recent form is questionable but could change today. 2017 has seen Liverpool unable to beat Sunderland (2-2), Plymouth Argyle (0-0) and Southampton (1-0 defeat), which has also seen Jurgen Klopp’s side slip from second place to fourth place in the league, which could either stay the same, with a defeat, or rise, with a win today.
