United enter the fixture after a comfortable 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in a Premier League clash at Old Trafford last weekend. Their performance in the match against the north London club was their best of the season.

In the last five Premier League fixtures, United have conceded only two league goals and maintained three clean sheets. Louis van Gaal will be looking for another clean sheet when his side take on Liverpool.

Both these teams have met twice, once during the pre-season and the other earlier during the season. United have won on both occasions.

What They Say

Brendan Rodgers: " Even Van Gaal would say that coming into the Premier League is different to where he's worked before. The competition in this country is far greater. He's shown over his career that he's a top-class manager. He'll have seen coming into this country for the first time, the challenges of football here. This is the most competitive league in the world. If you've spent your career in the Premier League, it's different to the other leagues."

Louis van Gaal: " It's strange, but it can be like this [Rooney's barren run at Anfield]. He's a very experienced player, he has played on all the grounds in the world, so I don't think that he shall be influenced by the fans at by the stadium or something like that."
