In what is arguably the biggest attraction Premier League has to offer, Manchester United will host arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday.
United can be considered lucky to come out with a 2-3 win from Crystal Palace on Monday. The win helped them keep hold of the second spot in the league table. However, the Reds are just two points behind United, and a win on Saturday will put them in the second spot.
United are now unbeaten in their four games in all competitions. However, they have had to struggle for results in the recent weeks.
Meanwhile, Liverpool will come into this game amidst a superb run of form. They were involved in Champions League during midweek and played a goalless draw with Porto which was enough for them to book a spot in the last-8. The likes of Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mohamed Salah were rested by Jurgen Klopp against the Portugues side.
In the league, Liverpool have picked up four wins and one draw in their last five games. On current form, the Merseysiders look certain to finish in the top-four. However, they wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity to finish above their historic rivals in the league table.
Earlier this season, both sides played a goalless draw at Anfield.
