Liverpool will look to complete a Premier League double over Manchester United for the first time since the 2013-14 season when the two sides meet at Anfield on Tuesday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side has been in tremendous form, making it to the UEFA Champions League semifinal and the FA Cup final and has remained unbeaten against league leader Manchester City in its last two clashes.

When it faces Manchester United, the Reds will be desperate for nothing less than three points for the fact that they sit just one point behind Manchester City and a victory will propel them to the top (though temporarily).

Manchester United, on the other hand, has returned to winning ways after a loss to Everton, with a 3-2 win against Norwich.

However, the star of that match, Cristiano Ronaldo, will be unavailabe for family bereavement, while the manager expects Bruno Fernandes to feature in the ley clash against the bitter rival.

United is without a win away against Liverpool for five matches now, losing two and drawing three while Liverpool has earned more points than any other Premier League side since its loss to Leicester in December last year.

On paper, while the Reds clearly look the team set for a win. But knowing the Premier League and its affliction for upsets, the Red Devils can pull off a stunning win in Klopp’s owen fortress.
