The Red Devils are well behind the development of Jurgen Klopp’s team but will be hoping that home advantage and nous of new manager Erik ten Hag can force an upset.

“It is a hell of a job [being in charge of Man United],” said ten Hag. “We have to work really hard, analyse then move forward. We need to have self belief, as well as the tactical organisation, and a hunger to always improve.”

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, will hope his team can continue their recent dominance over United – though he believes Old Trafford is always a tough place to travel to… despite a 5-0 win there last season.

“Always we expect a difficult game and it will be no different,” said the German tactician. “We don’t care about what the results in the past or even last season were… only what happens this time is what counts now.”

Key players

Christian Eriksen – The Danish playmaker is still finding his feet at Manchester United, but is sure to add a variety of passing and vision that should benefit their attacking players. If Eriksen can get time and space on the ball, then the Red Devils will have a good chance of unlocking Liverpool’s defence.

Mohamed Salah – After signing a bumper new deal in the off-season, Salah is now back to his settled best with Liverpool and will be eager to get a run at a Man United defence which is still quite fragile. Should the Egyptian prosper, the Reds will surely head home with three points.
