The rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester United is fiercely intense, and it is safe to say that there is zero love between the two sets of fans.
This weekend puts Liverpool’s following in a predicament, though, as some glory for United could benefit the Merseyside outfit’s title bid.
Jurgen Klopp’s team dropped points at the weekend as they failed to hold on to their lead against Arsenal.
Alexandre Lacazette cancelled out James Milner’s opener, which resulted in a 1-1 draw at the Emirates on Saturday.
City and Chelsea made the most of Liverpool’s result by earning victories over their respective opponents.
Pep Guardiola’s men certainly made an impression as they thrashed Southampton 6-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
City only hold a two-point lead at the top of the Premier League table, but they have a superior 10-goal advantage over the rest of the pack.
On Sunday, City will go head to head with local rivals United, and some Liverpool fans will be rooting for Jose Mourinho’s team for the first time.
In almost all cases, the Reds’ fanbase hope their Manchester enemies will suffer defeat, but not on this occasion.
