Kickoff from Anfield at 1:30PM BST/8:30AM EST

The struggles of Liverpool's captain have been in plain view for much of the early going, but you'd be hard-pressed to find someone--present company included--who would love nothing more than for him to turn things back in a positive direction against Manchester United today. The occasion's not lost on him, as it poses a chance for both player and club to launch themselves forward into the thick of the season. "It's a massive game - we're looking for our first [league] win of the season and there would be no-one better for us to start getting three points on the board [against]. Hopefully then we can go on a run of winning games and move up the league because our start to the season has been inconsistent."
