Tony Coton: 'Liverpool match will test Manchester United's title chances'

Liverpool, meanwhile, have been struggling to find consistent form so far this season and have only won one of their last seven games in all competitions. £75 million summer signing Romelu Lukaku seems to have fit in perfectly in the famous red shirt, scoring 10 goals in just nine appearances so far, while Marouane Fellaini appears more important than ever after few terrible initial years at Manchester United, although he has been ruled out for at least a month with a knee injury.

John Aldridge has warned Manchester United that Liverpool have plenty of players suited for big games ahead of Saturday's clash at Anfield in the Premier League.

The Reds are now seventh, while Manchester United are second in the table and level on points with leaders Manchester City.

"If you mean from his ownership, none whatsoever", Purslow said in response to whether Klopp was under pressure after two years as Liverpool manager.

Throughout the week we're giving you the chance to vote for your favourite goalkeeper, defenders, midfielders and strikers, before collating the results and revealing YOUR Premier League Liverpool-United XI on Friday - if you haven't cast your goalkeeper vote you can do so here. "He is the right man for the job and that's going to take five years, not two years".

And Barnes is confident Liverpool will prevail, suggesting United's apparent need to go all-out attack - despite Mourinho's reputation as a pragmatist - is likely to work against them.

"They have had the upper hand against all of the top teams because of the nature of the way those games are played".

'They are very open, they are very attack-minded - whereby one team attacks and leaves the defence to defend for themselves.

Mourinho and his men will travel to the Merseyside without Paul Pogba and Michael Carrick but the Red Devils are hoping to have Phil Jones back fit again after having recovered from the knock that forced him out of England's squad for the Three Lions' victorious World Cup qualifying games against Slovenia and Lithuania.
