Manchester United will be determined to derail Liverpool's season when they meet at Old Trafford in Sunday's Premier League clash.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are 15 points adrift of their old enemies after just eight games, although remain unbeaten in six home encounters between the sides.

Manchester United vs Liverpool team news
David de Gea suffered a groin injury while on international duty, joining Paul Pogba, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Diogo Dalot and Timothy Fosu-Mensah in the treatment room. Jesse Lingard, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James, Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw will all face late fitness tests.
Alisson and Joel Matip are both expected to return from injury whilst Mohamed Salah should also start after shaking off the injury he sustained against Leicester. Xherdan Shaqiri and Nathaniel Clyne remain sidelined.
Manchester United vs Liverpool preview
While there are very few criticisms you could aim at Jurgen Klopp, his failure to secure a single win in four visits to this ground represents a noticeable blot on his otherwise pristine copybook.
Indeed, his side has scored just two goals in those four matches, including a frustrating 0-0 draw in their most recent league encounter.
Another stalemate may well represent the limit of the Red Devils’ aspirations once again considering their failure to score more than a single goal in any of their last 10 fixtures, relying instead on a backline that has conceded just four goals in six home games.
Manchester United vs Liverpool predictions
With United set to sit back and defend, even money (2.00) looks like strong value on no more than one team finding the net for their sixth game in eight, and their second in a row against Liverpool.
Both teams to score: no at Evens (2.00) for a 2pt stake with 888Sport
