Arguably the most anticipated clash of any Premier League season and for the first time in many seasons, Liverpool have the upper hand going into the fixture over their fierce rivals. The Reds are currently second to Chelsea in the League table while David Moyes’ men, thanks to their 3-0 win over West Brom last weekend are sixth on the table. However, the Red Devils are still eleven points behind Liverpool a gap which looks highly unlikely to be covered.
Can Brendan Rodgers’ side continue their juggernaut and hurl further ignominy to their greatest rivals? In doing so, what would be the strongest lineup for the Reds? We here at Soccersouls have the answer.
Simon Mignolet faces his toughest match in quite some time but comes into the match on the back of a creditable clean sheet against Southampton. The likes of Rooney and Van Persie will cause enough trouble for the Belgian and his distribution and collection of the ball from crosses will be key to Liverpool’s performance in the match.
