One of the best rivalries in the English games writes its latest chapter on Saturday when Manchester United and Liverpool square off at Old Trafford.
Liverpool’s chances of pulling off an upset are hampered by the suspension of playmaker Philippe Coutinho, who was sent off in the Reds’ disastrous 3-0 loss to West Ham prior to the international break.
This match may feature the debut of Anthony Martial, who Manchester United paid about $90 million for in a transfer deadline panic move.
After four games, both teams have seven points; Manchester United are fifth in the EPL table on goal difference while Liverpool are seventh.
