In the most storied rivalry in Premier League history, Manchester United and Liverpool clash in the early kick off on Saturday.

Both teams are in a fight for second place and are separated by only two points sitting in second and third place respectively.

With the league all but wrapped by Manchester City, United are looking to lock down the second place position.

Liverpool have had somewhat of a resurgence in the second half of the season and are looking to usurp their rivals.

Liverpool are the last team that United would want to go past them and with a crucial Champions League game coming up this week, United will want to get the three points and also come out of the game unscathed so that they can play a full strength team against Sevilla.

Liverpool have been playing some fantastic football under Jurgen Klopp this season and their front three of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and the sensational Mohamed Salah strike fear into the hearts of defences.

Klopp and his team play very well against tough opposition and have been known to play their best football against the other top teams in the league.

The United defence has been stout this season and will have their work cut out for them if they are to stop this Liverpool juggernaut.

Mourinho isn’t exactly known to play expansive football and Klopp is on the complete other end of the spectrum. He gives the team freedom to express themselves whereas Mourinho utilises a system to try and maximise the talents of his team. With this in play, this game should play out in a very interesting fashion.

SCORE PREDICTION: SCORE PREDICTION: Manchester United 2-3 Liverpool – Firmino to score first.
