When the fixture list was revealed in the summer, few expected Manchester United to head to Liverpool as league leaders.

But that's the scenario ahead of Sunday afternoon's clash at Anfield between these great rivals, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side three points clear of the Premier League champions.

It is 364 days since Man Utd last tasted defeat on the road in a Premier League game, and that was at Anfield.

Liverpool's 2-0 win over Utd back in January 2020 was the moment their long-suffering fans started to believe the three-decade wait for league title number 19 was finally coming to an end.

The champions' form has not been up to their normal high standards in recent weeks, with two draws and a defeat in their last three league games, while Utd arrive off the back of an 11-game unbeaten run in the league, winning nine, including their last three.

However, Liverpool have gone nearly three years since losing a Premier

League match at Anfield.

It will be a 4.30pm kick-off at Anfield, one of four Premier League games being played on Sunday.

The match will start shortly after Sheffield United vs Tottenham Hotspur finishes.

Manchester City, who are starting to flex their muscles and make their presence felt in this year's title race, play the final match on Sunday, a 7.15pm kick-off at home to Crystal Palace.

Unsurprisingly a showdown as big as this - even though no fans will be present this year - will be shown on Sky Sports.

Fans can follow the build-up on Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League from 4pm.

The match can be streamed by anyone who has Sky Sports subscriptions on their Sky Go or NOW TV apps.
