Liverpool will be looking to regain top spot in the Premier League when arch rivals Manchester United visit Anfield on Sunday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United moved to the top of the table thanks to Paul Pogba’s volleyed winner against Burnley on Tuesday.
The win helped United to nine wins and a draw in their last 11 outings. In all, Manchester United have not lost a league game since the start of November.
On the road, Solskjaer’s men have won seven out of eight Premier League fixtures – the most in the top flight.
Liverpool have only won four of the last 10 matches in the league, failing to win in any of their last three fixtures. In their last match, Southampton beat the Merseysiders 1-0, thanks to a solitary goal from former Liverpool striker Danny Ings.
For the hosts, Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk remains sidelined with a long-term injury. The same is the case for fellow centre-back Joe Gomez, with Brazilian midfielders Fabinho and Jordan Henderson filling in at centre-back for Jurgen Klopp’s team as doubts persist over Joel Matip’s availability.
In addition, Portuguese attacker Diogo Jota will not take part in the match on Sunday due to a knee injury. Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara has recently returned to the side, though, after being out of action for an extended period.
