Liverpool will be welcoming Manchester United to Anfield Stadium on Sunday with the sole aim of winning so they can go back on top of the English Premier League table.

Alas! This wouldn’t be easy in consideration of the fact that Man Utd who are also sworn competitors are also aiming to stay at the top. A win for the Red Devils will have an impact on their opportunity of lifting the league this season.

Joel Matip will undergo a late fitness test to ascertain his involvement.

Due to injuries Naby Keita, Diogo Jota, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez will be out

As for Manchester United, they will play without the services of Phil Jones and Brandon Williams.

The Reds have won their last two home league games against Manchester United.

The Red Devils on the other hand are winless in their last four league games against Liverpool.

Just as the players, United Boss Ole Gunnar Solksjær and Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp look ahead to Sunday’s top-of-the-table Premier League clash at Anfield.

Former Liverpool star and Norwegian footballer John Riise who is also a friend to Solksjær thinks Liverpool is a better team

“I feel Liverpool are still the strongest,” he says. “United have surprised me so far but I’m not sure they will keep going until the end.

“They have been beating the teams they are expected to beat, but Sunday is where the real test comes,” Riise adds.

The showdown happens this evening. Who are you rooting for? Which of the Reds do you think will take home the three points for tonight’s game clash?
