Liverpool v Manchester United- 5 memorable Anfield encounters

He said 'that's the worst thing that could happen, you'll lose and you'll go home and have a Chinese'.

Ferguson oversaw 27 years of remarkable success at Old Trafford after being appointed manager in 1986, but struggled initially.

And Mourinho, speaking to Sky Sports, was quick to question the "process" that led to Fellaini's injury but made it clear that his emphasis was now firmly on giving other players a chance to impress.

Having already conceded twelve goals in the league compared to Manchester United's two, Klopp will be eager to tighten up at the back with the news free-scoring Romelu Lukaku is fully fit and eager to continue his run having netted ten goals in his last eleven games. They have won six in a row and scored four goals in more than half of their games so far this season in all competitions.

And Klopp can cling to the fact that his side have lost just once to a top-six side directly after an international break.

Manchester United versus Liverpool is one of the biggest rivalries in football.

Confidence among the fans travelling to Liverpool will certainly be higher than last year but there is always a nervousness surrounding the fixture. It will likely mean Ander Herrera coming in to partner Nemanja Matic in what should be a steely defensive block in central midfield. His emotions, the way he coaches the team, the way he jumps around, the way he shows his desire to win, that fits the club.

Former Liverpool striker and manager Kenny Dalglish expects Mourinho to protect his defence with a cautious approach, similar to how they played in last season's 1-1 draw on Merseyside.

The Gunners spent considerably less than their rivals in the transfer market last summer and ended up making a net profit after selling off the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Kieran Gibbs and Gabriel Paulista.

There's a ray of light for Palace thanks to the return to training of winger Wilfried Zaha, who has been out since getting injured on the opening weekend.

United though can go back to the top of the league with three points before City face Stoke at 3pm. They've thrown away seven points in games against Chelsea, Burnley and Swansea at Wembley, and that's more than they dropped at home in the entirety of last season.
