A place on the summit of the Premier League table will be on the line when Liverpool play hosts to rivals Manchester United to Old Trafford on Sunday.
Jurgen Klopp and his men have been the pace setters in the Premier League for well over a year, having been by far the best side in the competition since the 2018/19 season.
However, Liverpool have been thrown off their perch this week by their familiar rivals, having been in a precarious position since losing 1-0 to Southampton in their most recent Premier League game.
The aforementioned familiar rivals are none other than the Red Devils, who have been in quite a resurgent mood this term under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Since suffering the 6-1 hammering at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur early in the campaign, United have the best record in the top-flight and their 1-0 win over Burnley this week saw them reach the summit of the Premier League.
The corresponding fixture last season ended in a 2-0 win for the Reds, a result that sparked the fine unbeaten run on the road that United are currently on in the Premier League.
Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Becker, Alexander-Arnold, Williams, Fabinho, Robertson, Henderson, Alcantara, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane
Man Utd XI (4-2-3-1): Gea, Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Rashford, Fernandes, Pogba, Martial
Kick off is at 17:30 (GMT +1).
