United have taken just a point from their last three league games, including defeats to West Ham and Newcastle, and are without Paul Pogba and David De Gea.
Jurgen Klopp‘s side have been in imperious form, winning all of their eight opening games, scoring 20 goals in the process.
They currently lead Manchester City by eight points at the top of the table, while United are teetering just two points above the relegation zone.
Here is everything you need to know about the game:
Liverpool have barely stopped for a breath since lifting the Champions League in the summer. Meanwhile, United have had two weeks to let their problems further manifest, rather than provide any respite. Despite United inevitably rousing themselves for such a big rivalry, Liverpool’s superiority in talent, cohesion, morale and tactics will ultimately shine through.

Manchester United 4/1
Pogba has been ruled out as he continues to recover from an ankle injury that has derailed the start to his season, as well as Jesse Lingard who Solskjaer described as having “no chance” of being fit. De Gea strained a muscle adductor on international duty with Spain and is also unlikely to be available. However, Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are all in line to return to the starting eleven.
There is an outside chance Alisson may return in goal for Liverpool having stepped up his rehabilitation over the international break. Mohamed Salah is a minor doubt after sustaining an ankle injury during Liverpool’s win over Leicester, but is expected to make the starting line-up. Xherdan Shaqiri is a doubt with a calf injury while Nathaniel Clyne remains a long-term absentee.
Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mane.
Manchester United XI: Romero; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw; McTominay, Matic, Pereira; James, Mata, Rashford.
