Jurgen Klopp's side can reclaim their spot at the top of the table should they manage to beat the Red Devils at Anfield in Sunday's massive showdown

Liverpool face one of their biggest tests of the season when they host rivals Manchester United in the Premier League at Anfield on Sunday.

The Reds will need to win against Man United in order to reassert themselves at the top of the table, after Man City won 3-1 over Everton on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho's side head into to the fixture sixth in the league and 16 points adrift of their Merseyside foes, but find themselves with a conundrum – as a victory would give the advantage to their crosstown rivals Man City , while a win would give Liverpool momentum in their race for the Premier League title.

Match Preview

Jose Mourinho Jurgen Klopp Manchester United Liverpool

Liverpool are unbeaten in the Premier League and remain the only team in the English top-flight to have avoided defeat all season following Man City's loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend .

In doing so, Liverpool have found themselves in pole position as title challengers and a win over Man United would lift them to one point above Pep Guardiola's side.

They will be buoyed from their memorable 1-0 victory over Napoli in the mid-week during their final Champions League group stage game, a goal from Mohamed Salah and a spectacular stoppage-time save from Alisson securing their spot in the last 16 of the competition .

Klopp, however, has failed to win over Mourinho's Man United side in four attempts so far, drawing three times and losing their most recent meeting (a 2-1 loss in March this year).

Mourinho's team have only won one of their last five Premier League games – and also lost their mid-week Champions League fixture against Valencia, though they already secured a spot in the knockout round – and will be eager to be the first team to subject Liverpool to a league defeat of the season.

A win for the Red Devils at Anfield however, will only take them to 29 points and five points behind Arsenal heading into Sunday (who play earlier in the day).

Guardiola, for his part, revealed that he would indeed be tuning into the fixture :  "Of course. It's a nice game to watch. I will watch it."
