Two points separate Manchester United and Liverpool but their playing philosophies are further apart.

While Jose Mourinho wants to control how the game is played, Jurgen Klopp believes in giving his players freedom to express themselves.

United have the toughest defensive unit at home in the EPL, having conceded just six goals in 14 matches while Liverpool are the most prolific on the road, not just in the EPL but in Europe’s top five leagues with 34 goals scored in 14 matches.
