Both teams scored three each in midweek in 3-2 wins in the Champions League. However, both are experiencing different runs of form domestically with Jurgen Klopp’s Reds unbeaten in all competitions this season.
What’s more, with Mohamed Salah in the form of his life, and Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane serving as lethal deputies, Liverpool have bagged 36 goals this campaign, averaging three per game.
Meanwhile Manchester United have been erratic, oscillating between the sublime and the abject from one week to the next. Six goals from Cristiano Ronaldo has done little to paper over the cracks in midfield, and with fissures opening up in defence, with Harry Maguire still finding his feet after injury and Raphael Varane sidelined with a groin injury, the vultures are now circling over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
This one promises plenty of goals. The question is, can United score enough to get something out of it?
