Big game on Saturday. Form would suggest a Utd win but I guess that all goes out the window for this fixture.

Absolutely but the permanently unemployable are expecting us to score 4 again so hopefully we can oblige! 😊

A score draw looks the most likely result. A high profile game such as this played so early in the day and so soon after the international break can more often than not lessen the quality of the spectacle.

I expect us to score but lets see how we do at the other end. Carrick is out so wouldn't be surprised to see an extra centre half and play wing backs, if that happened then I could see Darmian playing as 1 of the 3.

The squad is starting to get tested with injuries to Pogba, Fellaini & Carrick.

A score draw would be a brilliant result for the scallys. Most of them are secretly fearing a hammering but the injuries United have at present makes that unlikely.  Regardless of injuries their defence is a laughing stock so I'll be disappointed if Mourinho goes there defensive but you never can tell with Jose.

Klopp i believe has a good record against Mourinho. Liverpool will win tomorrow if Manchester United play like they did in away games against Southampton and Stoke.

If United do they will, but they won't!

That cant be right surely??? If so I am going to stick a score on them, I think they win this three one, no way in hell that defence stops Lukaku and Rashford etc.

WTF was Lukaku at with that shot?  Stroke it into the corner and 1-0!

Utd started poorly , seem to be a hangover from the international break.

De Gea to thank for going in at ht with a clean sheet.

Jose to make changes, rashford will be on soon enough.

So a scoreless draw instead of score draw. A poor spectacle and the 2nd half was worse than the 1st with no shot on target. Liverpool only side that looked to win that game but couldn't break down a well organized defence where DeGea only had to make one top class save.

Very disappointed in Jose. He obviously set the stall out for a 1-0 win when he should've went at them.

I’m sure Jose will get all the blame but I think his players let him down today. Miki, Herrara and Darmian were shocking in particular. Lukaku got no support at all but if you wanted to be hypercritical he had one chance and should have scored, ultimately that the difference at top level.

I was happy enough at half time but in the 2nd half they couldn’t even pass to one another. Liverpool were good up to a point but were toothless up top. Salah must be frustrating to watch, he looks like he’s about to do something exceptional but then doesn’t.

One positive is that there’s no shame in being able to defend, Jones was mighty impressive again.
