Manchester United, However are rock bottom in the league and have failed to collect a point.
Although Manchester United will be facing Liverpool weak side, their chances of securing a point is very slim.

Manchester United, meanwhile, have looked timid and disjointed on the pitch and their confidence is quite low, especially after the 4-0 thrashing by Brentford.
Liverpool will miss Thaigo Alcantara, Joel Matip, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Diogo Jota, Ibrahima Konate, Caoimhin Kelleher, Calvin Ramsay and Darwin Nunez.
