Easily the star match of this weekend is the battle of Liverpool and table-topper, Manchester United as the Premiership gathers full steam.
On Saturday, Leicester City upstaged Liverpool from the second position and will hope for a helping hand from Manchester United whose mission this Sunday is obviously to ensure Liverpool does not get full points.
Manchester United after initial faulty take off at the start of the season are now revving up by presenting their greatest challenge to the Premiership since the era of Sir Alex Fergusson. They now have attacking intent than in the recent seasons.
But how far can they go this Sunday considering that they have failed to score in three of their last four matches at Anfield. But their 2020/21 away form has been awesome. They face Liverpool who have not been in their best elements lately.
Manchester United have the firepower to trouble the now injury depleted Liverpool defence. Coupled with that is the away form of Marcus Rashford who is expected to trouble Liverpool a lot. He has been very excellent especially in away matches.
Rashford has produced a direct goal involvement in every away match so far. He has scored six times, an average of one every 111 minutes, and has provided five assists with telling contributions at key moments.
Of his seven Premier League goals this term, only one has come at Old Trafford. Despite a quiet night on the right at Burnley, Rashford still managed to provide the assist for Paul Pogba’s winner, showing his all-round threat.
If Rashford continues his current away form, United have a chance for a first win at Liverpool since January 2016.
