The Premier League features one of the most high-profile matches this week as Liverpool visit Old Trafford to lock horns with fierce rivals Manchester United on Thursday. Both teams have exceptional players in their ranks and have a point to prove going into this game.
Manchester United are in second place in the Premier League standings and have punched above their weight under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season. The Red Devils have secured UEFA Champions League qualification this year and could potentially win the UEFA Europa League in the coming weeks.
Liverpool, on the other hand, have endured a dismal campaign so far and have suffered from a spate of injuries over the past year. Jurgen Klopp's charges have an outside chance of finishing in the top four this season and cannot afford to drop points in this fixture.
