Jurgen Klopp’s side – who are looking for their sixth consecutive win in all competitions – have the chance to go joint top of the level with a win, as three points would take them onto 19 for the season, level with both Manchester City and Arsenal.
United on the other hand will travel to Anfield hoping to rock the Liverpool boat and kick-start their own season following a hit-and-miss start.
Jose Mourinho’s men are yet to find their best form so far this season despite some good results, however can still go level on points with Liverpool however with a win against their long-time rivals.
