Match facts

  • Liverpool haven't beaten United in their last six meetings with them, though they have drawn three times in a row. This is their worst run since between 2004 and 2008 when they failed to win eight in a row.
  • Liverpool have won just one of their last eight matches against Manchester United in all competitions (W1 D3 L4) – winning 2-0 in the Europa League in 2015-16.
  • Liverpool currently have 12 points from seven games this season. If they lose this game, they will have the same number of points as they did from eight games in 2015-16 (12), which saw Brendan Rodgers sacked from his position as Liverpool manager.
  • Jurgen Klopp has lost just one of his seven competitive meetings with Jose Mourinho as a manager (W3 D3 L1).
  • Jurgen Klopp remains without midfielder Adam Lallana and right back Nathaniel Clyne.  Goalkeeper Adam Bogdan also is out, though he is clearly not needed or wanted.
  • The biggest bit of news from the qualification matches was that Sadio Mane will be out for about six weeks.  There are also concerns, as always, that South American duo Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho won't be ready to play so soon after flying back.  We do expect them to play, though, and for both to be in the front line due to Mane's injury.
  • Manchester United have won three of their last five Premier League visits to Anfield (W3 D1 L1) and have kept clean sheets in their last two games there.
  • Manchester United have kept 17 clean sheets in the Premier League in 2017, three more than any other side. Jose Mourinho’s side have recorded a shutout in eight of their last nine league games, shipping just two goals in the process (vs Stoke).
  • If Manchester United win this game, it’ll be their best ever points tally after eight games of a Premier League season (22), following 20-point hauls in both 2011-12 and 1999-00.
  • Since Jose Mourinho took charge of Manchester United ahead of 2016-17; these two clubs have won the exact same number of points in the Premier League (88). Liverpool have scored 16 more goals (91 v 75) but have conceded 23 more (54 v 31).
  • Jose Mourinho won eight of his first 10 Premier League meetings with Liverpool (D1 L1) between October 2004 and November 2014 but since then he has failed to win any of his four games against them (D3 L1).
  • Romelu Lukaku became the second player to score seven goals in his first seven Premier League appearances for Man Utd after Andrew Cole. No player has scored eight goals in their first eight Premier League appearances for the club.
  • Lukaku scored four goals in his first four Premier League games versus Liverpool, but has since netted just once in his last seven. Indeed, he has failed to land a shot on target in five of those seven games.
  • Marcus Rashford has been directly involved in nine goals in his last 10 competitive games for Man Utd (five goals, four assists) after having a hand in just two goals in his previous 10 apps (one goal, one assist).

Predictions

It's been very clear over the years how Jose Mourinho approaches big matches like these. The Portuguese manager loves to win if he can, but more often than not he is more than happy to take a draw.

Given how Liverpool set up, though, doing so could actually end up giving United chances to win the match as Liverpool are surely going to overextend themselves. If they do this, United could take more than just one point, but a draw looks a safe call given all the injuries for the two teams.

Final Score 1 - 1
