Manchester United travel to Anfield this weekend and they will be hoping to extend their lead at the top of the table with a win at Anfield.

The Red Devils have not had much joy against the Premier League champions in recent seasons and they will be hoping to pull off an upset here.

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last five matches against United but they are going through a rough patch right now and the visitors will fancy their chances of victory.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Anthony Martial could be fit for Sunday’s game. The Frenchman picked up an injury scare against Burnley. The 25-year-old’s return would certainly be a major boost for the Red Devils.

Martial has scored five goals in all competitions for United so far this season and his pace/flair could be lethal against Liverpool’s inexperienced centre-backs.

Meanwhile, Brandon Williams and Phil Jones are ruled out for this weekend’s trip to Anfield.

United have been formidable on their travels this season and no team has picked up more points than them away from home. They have won seven of their eight league games away from home this season.

It remains to be seen if Liverpool can defend their outstanding home record against their bitter rivals this weekend. The Reds are unbeaten in 46 home league games.
