Liverpool vs Manchester United

Liverpool will host their rivals Manchester United at Anfield Stadium this weekend. The most anticipated match will determine who remains on top of the English Premier League table. 

Liverpool will face United after losing 1-0 to Southampton in their most recent EPL game. 

Danny Ings, former Liverpool forward, scored an early goal for Southampton which was enough to secure a win for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men. 

Manchester United come into this game with a win against Burnley in their last Premier League match. 

Paul Pogba’s strike ensured victory for United in the second half, moving them up to position one in the Premier League table.
