The Red Devils make a trip to Anfield looking to extend their unbeaten record in the Premier League and to rub salt into Liverpool early-season’s wounds.
The forthcoming clash is most you can ask for after the international break as Premier League returns to action with a bang.
Jose Mourinho could be without three key midfielders for the Saturday’s big match. Paul Pogba has been missing since mid-September and the Champions League victory over Basel, whereas the club captain Michael Carrick missed the last two games through injury.
In-form Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini has sustained a knee ligament damage while playing for his country against Bosnia although the boss is expected to provide a deeper update on the player and other squad members.
There have been doubts over the availability of our key man Romelu Lukaku, but he is likely to lead the line in attack once again.
The hosts are also having some selection worries with Sadio Mane facing up to six weeks on the sidelines due to a hamstring injury he got while away with Senegal. Defenders Dejan Lovren and Nathaniel Clyne are both set to miss the match as well.
Liverpool have endured mixed fortunes at the start of the new season.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are once again playing a high-tempo brand of football but their lack of activity during the summer transfer market – especially in defence department – is proving to be a major problem.
Reds are conceding plenty of goals and lack stability in their backline, which could be Manchester United’s big chance on Saturday. Liverpool’s fragile defense will be put on a proper test as we travel to Anfield with an unbeaten record in the 2017/18 season.
Sitting together with Manchester City on top of the Premier League standings, Red Devils will be eager to claim a morale-boosting win that could push us clear of the Citizens at the top of the standings.
The last time we met Liverpool held us to an Old Trafford draw. Earlier last season our trip to Anfield also resulted in a stalemate which was the first time both matches between England’s biggest rivals ended in a tie since 1987/88 campaign.
No such result is expected this time however as our team will be looking to collect all three points and we firmly believe this can be done. The bookies however see no difference between the two sides and Bet365 are offering reasonable 7/4 betting odds on both Liverpool and United to win. There you can find good-value odds of 21/20 on Romelu Lukaku to continue his impressive scoring run of seven Premier League goals in as many matches.
