Two bitter rivals lock horns at Anfield on Sunday as Liverpool host Manchester United in what promises to be a classic Premier League encounter.
STREAM LIVERPOOL v MANCHESTER UNITED LIVE
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are unbeaten in their last four Premier League games, winning three of them and keeping shutouts in all four. That said, they are still a bit reeling from their 5-2 home pounding against Real Madrid. Klopp is keen to view this as a bad 60 minutes of a single game rather than a trend and their forwards have been doing better in recent weeks as the Reds edge closer to the top four.
Manchester United are flying under Erik ten Hag at the moment as they have won the League Cup, beaten Barcelona to reach the last 16 of the Europa League, are in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and are hiding just outside away from the title race. Surely they can’t win a quadruple. Can they? This United team seems to have real unity and a nice balance at the moment.

Key scenarios and in-form players to watch
Look, it’s been a pretty dismal season for Liverpool after coming so close to winning the all-time treble last term. Yet they are now back in the conversational top four and their strikers are shooting with Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez all grabbing goals at different times. Defensively they look better since the return of Virgil van Dijk (Real debacle aside) and Klopp’s side have the advantage of being in this position before and chasing a place in the top four . They clinched against Manchester United at Old Trafford earlier this season, but there is something about this rivalry game at Anfield that brings out the best in the Reds.
As for United, they have so many forwards playing at the top of their game, but the scorching Marcus Rashford and the mercurial Bruno Fernandes have been unstoppable in recent weeks. The same goes for Casemiro in midfield, while his experience in front of Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez and David de Gea looks like a wonderful defensive unit. Over the years United have had big wins at Anfield, but they have struggled in recent seasons. Their fans will be desperate to keep this good run going and keep the pressure on Arsenal and Manchester City in their unlikely title bid.
