Another edition of the North-West Derby, perhaps the biggest rivalry in English football, will take place at Anfield Road on Saturday when Liverpool host Manchester United. Last season's pair of Premier League meetings failed to produce a winner, the match in Liverpool ended goalless while the return fixture at Old Trafford ended 1-1. Before that, Manchester United had won four consecutive Premier League matches against Liverpool, but the Reds got their revenge in the Europa League two seasons ago as they pulled through after a 2-0 home win and a 1-1 draw in Manchester.
Liverpool are hoping to come out stronger after the international break, their season so far has been full of disappointments. They have won just one of their last seven games in all competitions, a poor streak that started with the 5-0 defeat at Manchester City at the start of September. Last time out they were held to a 1-1 draw at Newcastle despite having opened the scoring in the first half through Philippe Coutinho. Sadio Mane picked up an injury while on international duty and will be out for six weeks, while Adam Lallana, Adam Bogan and Nathaniel Clyne remain sidelined.
Manchester United are still unbeaten in all competitions since the start of the season, the only match they lost was the European Super Cup against Real Madrid before the Premier League campaign started. They are tied at the top of the table with Manchester City with six wins and a draw. Before the international break they eased past Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, it ended 4-0 with two goals from Marouane Fellaini. The Belgium international suffered a knee injury with his national team and will be out for three weeks. Paul Pogba is still out with a hamstring injury, while Michael Carrick and Phil Jones are injury doubts ahead of Saturday's game.
Liverpool: Mignolet - Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Moreno - Can, Henderson, Wijnaldum - Salah, Firmino, Coutinho
Man United: De Gea - Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Young - Matic, Herrera - Mata, Mhkitaryan, Rashford - Lukaku
My prediction: 2-2 draw.
