Saturday’s game could hardly mean more for both sides.The rivalry between the two clubs is a bitter one, and this time round the meeting could determine which of the two clubs finishes above the other come the end of the season.
Manchester City are runaway leaders this term with United and Liverpool directly below them in the Premier League table.
United have won 10 of their last 13 Premier League home games against the Reds, losing in 2008-09 and 2013-14, and drawing last season.
And while few teams go to Old Trafford and win, the Anfield outfit will be confident in picking up a result, such is their strength in front of goal.
Only City have scored more goals than Klopp’s side, though the Reds have scored more times on the road than any other side in the English top tier.
Liverpool have also already booked their place in the Champions League quarter-finals, too, while United play their second leg against Sevilla just three days after they host their Merseyside opponents.
The fixture promises to kick the weekend’s Premier League fixtures off with a bang on Saturday afternoon as the rivalry between the two sides continues.
