The Premier League features another edition of its biggest rivalry this week as Liverpool lock horns with Erik ten Hag's Manchester United in a highly-anticipated encounter at Old Trafford on Monday.


Manchester United vs Liverpool Preview

Liverpool are currently in 12th place in the Premier League standings and have largely failed to hit their stride this season. The Merseyside outfit were held to a 1-1 draw by Crystal Palace last week and will need to take it up a notch in this fixture.

Manchester United, on the other hand, are rooted to the bottom of the league table at the moment and have been in abysmal form so far. The Red Devils suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Brentford in their previous game and will need to bounce back this week.
