Scotland Premiership

Manchester United-Liverpool Preview

Currently the champions-elect and unbeaten in the Premier League, Liverpool do not have to avenge any defeats through their first 21 matchdays. Jurgen Klopp's side, though, will not lack for motivation at Anfield on Sunday when they host the only club to take a point off them this term, eternal rivals Manchester United.

It is a matter of "when" and not "if" Liverpool will secure their first Premier League title in club history and first league title in 30 years since winning the First Division in 1990. The six-time European champions also have set a new standard in first-division football among the top five countries - England, France, Spain, Italy, and Germany -- by accumulating 61 points through their first 21 matches.

Liverpool (20-1-0), who are 14 points clear of reigning two-time champions Manchester City with a match in hand, laid claim to that record-setting mark with a 1-0 disposal of Tottenham Hotspur on Jan. 11 for their 12th league victory on the trot.
