October games don’t get much bigger than this. A Liverpool-Manchester United derby is always a special occasion, but for the first time in a long time, this match has implications for both teams at the top of the table. A 3-goal win for Liverpool would see them take the top spot in the league for the first time since that match against Mourinho’s Chelsea side in 13/14, whereas a 2-goal victory for United would see them supplant their Merseyside rivals in the coveted Top 4. Hold on to your butts.
