Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United take on Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool this Sunday in a potential thriller at the Old Trafford on Sunday evening.

The Red Devils are on fire lately and notched up their ninth straight win in all competitions by trouncing Hull City 2-0 in the EFL Cup semi-final last Tuesday. They also stretched their unbeaten streak to 15 matches and without a doubt are the team to beat in Europe at the moment.

Manchester United defeated West Ham 2-0 in their last Premier League outing to register their 6th straight league win. Also, they have netted at least 2 goals in the 5 games. Jose Mourinho’s mean are currently 6th in the standings, separated from the second placed Liverpool by virtue of 5 points. Meanwhile, the teams from third to fifth position are inside the 3 point gap.

Liverpool on the other hand had shown some signs of fatigue in the 1-0 defeat at Southampton on mid-week. They are on a three match win-less run at the moment starting with the unexpected 2-2 draw in their last Premier League clash against Sunderland, followed by a goal-less draw against lower league side Plymouth Argyle. The Reds are currently trailing the league leaders Chelsea by 5 points and this is one of the most important fixture of the season for them.
