After what has seemed like an eternity, Liverpool return to Premier League action on Sunday when they travel to Old Trafford to take on rivals Manchester United.

With eight wins from eight in the league, Jurgen Klopp’s men go to Manchester with many expecting a comprehensive victory, given the poor form of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side so far this season.

Since Liverpool’s defeat to Napoli in the Champions League, the Reds have won all five of their matches, while United have picked up three draws and two losses.

For United, the arrival of Jurgen Klopp’s men to Old Trafford on Sunday could go one of two ways.

With such awful form this season, United will be hoping that one of the biggest games of the season will see them finally turn up.

If they are to perform at their best, they may have to do so without injured pair David De Gea and Paul Pogba.

For the Reds, it is a case of picking up from where they were before the international break.

Ahead of the big game, we’ve outlined five key battles Liverpool must win on the pitch…

Who will win on Sunday afternoon?
