Liverpool will be hoping to make it nine wins in a row as they take on Manchester United in the Super Sunday clash in the Premier League.

Though the present League table reflects a wide gap between Liverpool and United, the two teams are indeed fierce rivals and an explosive encounter is anticipated at the Old Trafford.

Despite the contrasting fortunes of these two sides over the past couple of seasons, Liverpool have still had trouble in this fixture with only one win in their last 10 league meetings – a 3-1 triumph at Anfield last season.

The Reds are winless in their last six visits to Old Trafford across all competitions, including five on the bounce in the league – their longest wait for a top-flight victory away to United since a 10-game streak between 1991 and 2000.

Overall this will be the 231st meeting between the two sides, with United leading the all-time head-to-head by 88 wins to Liverpool’s 76.

At present, Jurgen Klopp’s men sit five points clear of second-place Manchester City after Pep Guardiola’s side won at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

That advantage could be increased depending on the result from Sunday’s tie.
