Man United vs Liverpool has been one of the top fixtures of the Premier League but during the past couple of years, this high-profile encounter has kind of lost its sheen.
While Liverpool has become a force to reckon with under Jurgen Klopp, United, on the other hand, have failed to settle on a single manager who would bring back their golden days.
Right now Man United are being led by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and so far they have managed to pick up only 9 points from their first 8 matches and are currently sitting on the 12th spot of the Premier League table.
Liverpool though are yet to drop points in the league winning each one of their first 8 matches and everyone would be looking at Man United to inflict the first defeat of the season to Jurgen Klopp’s men this upcoming weekend.
