The premier league is back this weekend and our game for the week is none other that Liverpool vs. Manchester United.
One of the biggest and intense games of every Premier League season is Liverpool v Manchester United.
Last season, both sides failed to record a win against each other.
However, Manchester United, following their impressive performance so far this season, appear to have an upper hand over Liverpool.
