STATS: Manchester United have conceded just two goals in their last nine Premier League games.
Since Jose Mourinho took charge at Old Trafford these two clubs have won the exact same number of points (88).
ANALYSIS: Liverpool have won only one of seven since beating Arsenal 4-0.
Saido Mane’s absence during the African Cup of Nations in January was solely felt at Anfield; and the Reds will certainly miss the Senegalese who look certain to miss this clash.
Manchester United, however travel to Merseyside in great form and high spirits, and are unbeaten in all competitions and have kept clean sheets in all but one league clash (against Stoke after the last international break).
PREDICTION: MANCHESTER UNITED WIN.
