Manchester United vs Liverpool head to head stats and records: Let us take a look at the stats between the two teams ahead of their encounter this weekend.
Manchester United and Liverpool have had contrasting fortunes in the ongoing season of the Premier League. While Liverpool have taken a massive lead in the competition already, United find themselves outside the top 10.
Liverpool are yet to be beaten in the Premier League this season while Manchester United have lost to the likes of Crystal Palace and Newcastle United. Therefore, the historic clash between the sides is now being seen as mismatch of epic proportions.
The contrast between the two sides is enormous. Liverpool have a well-established side under a charismatic manager who has instilled world conquering faith in his boys. Manchester United on the other hand are playing under a manger whose job is under scrutiny while most of their players are out with injury.
Regardless of everything that has happened before though, this is a match that both Liverpool and Manchester United see as the most important fixture in the year. The rivalry between the two clubs supersedes their local rivalries with Everton and Manchester City.
The two clubs are the most decorated sides in English football and their rivalry, despite the gulf in class, will be intense with neither side wanting to concede an inch to the other. However, Liverpool hold the advantage however with United missing David De Gea and Paul Pogba to injuries.

Manchester United is undergoing its worst run of form this season. The side have failed miserably in the pursuit of goals. Apart from the first match against Chelsea, United have failed to score more than once regardless of the competition and the contest.
This has meant that United are yet to win two consecutive matches in the Premier League, a far cry from the form that their opposition are in. If Solskjaer’s men are to even draw the match, they will have to perform out of their skins.
Liverpool have continued from where they last left. Last season, the Reds only lost once in their entire campaign. This time around, they have won all 8 of their matches in the league so far and have done so commandingly.
This is probably the easiest North West Derby Liverpool have taken part in. However, Jurgen Klopp will be wise to not let his guard down and continue in the same vein that they’ve performed so far.
