THE LOWDOWN

MAN UTD

  • A woeful Man Utd slipped to a 4-0 defeat to Brentford last weekend with fan sentiment surely at an all-time low right now, with incumbent boss Erik ten Hag faced with the unenviable task of turning around what appears to be a sinking ship.
  • The Red Devils have been busy in the transfer market in their attempts to sign Casemiro but, even if successful, the Brazilian will not be registered in time to face Liverpool, while fan protests concerning the Glazers will form the backdrop to this contest.

LIVERPOOL

  • A Luis Diaz stunner handed ten-man Liverpool a point against Crystal Palace on Monday but four points dropped already signifies a frustrating start for last season’s runners-up, who were left to rue Darwin Nunez’ moment of madness on his Anfield debut.
  • Nunez begins his three-game ban here and that should see Roberto Firmino – declared fit by Jurgen Klopp – return to the front three, while Joe Gomez should partner Virgil van Dijk in defence in place of Nat Phillips.

THE PREDICTION

Man Utd’s terrible start to the season has been well-publicised but they are in fact only two points behind Liverpool, who haven’t exactly exploded out of the blocks themselves. However, they are worlds apart in terms of cohesion and mentality, and that makes the visitors clear favourites here. Defensive injuries in the Liverpool side may give Ten Hag’s men hope of finding the net, and there will surely be some kind of response to last week’s embarrassing display at Brentford, but you would ultimately expect Liverpool to claim what would be a fourth Premier League victory in a row over the Red Devils.

TIP: LIVERPOOL TO WIN & BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
