Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team go into the match a full 15 points and 11 places behind Liverpool in the Premier League table, with United winning just one of their last seven league matches while the Merseysiders have a 100% record in the division so far this term.
De Gea’s absence in particular may come as a significant blow, with the goalkeeper boasting a good record against Liverpool – having faced them 19 times as a United player, he has kept six clean sheets in those games, including four in his last seven league matches against Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Predicted score, 8 – 0 to Liverpool. It was fun #Solskjaer. Well I’m sure we can be the best Championship division side.
