Liverpool vs Man United: Five Key Battles
Indeed, neither club’s current incarnations may boast the success or talent of their predecessors but this fixture still grabs the imagination not quite like any other and traditionally claims the largest global audience of any Premier League match-up.
Most people view the Reds as the favourites for this one, boasting home advantage and a run of five straight wins across all competitions. But you can never rule out a squad as expensively assembled as United’s or a Jose Mourinho side away from home.

With that in mind, Football FanCast have taken a look at FIVE we think will decide the outcome under the Anfield floodlights.
