Manchester United vs Liverpool

Manchester United to host Liverpool on Sunday, October 20, 2019, in what is expected to be yet another classic North-West derby between the two archrivals. Despite the clubs enjoying contrasting forms, nothing can be taken for granted in a game where form and fortunes tend to matter the least. Old Trafford is likely to be a stern test for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who is yet to taste victory at the venue. Also, the game should provide a chance for Klopp's United counterpart, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to try and silence his critics. We look at the last five PL clashes between the sides as we await Sunday.

United did have a couple of promising moments to snatch a lead, whereas the visitors struggled to create any clear cut chances. A draw suited well at the end.
