Liverpool vs. Manchester United 2017 live stream

Jose Mourinho has described Liverpool's Anfield stadium as a "beautiful place" and insisted his Manchester United stars will relish playing in such an intense atmosphere on Saturday.

Following the global break, the Premier League returns on Saturday with a tantalising clash between England's two most decorated clubs, Liverpool and Manchester United.

"It's whether they can improve on the biggest occasion".

United look well placed to strike having already plundered 21 league goals this season, while Romelu Lukaku can become the first player to score eight goals in his first eight Premier League games for the club.

Jürgen Klopp has only lost one of his seven games against teams managed by Mourinho, but his team now trail the two Manchester clubs by seven points, and can not afford to lose more ground this early on in the season.

Both sides are looking to make a big push for a title run this season with Manchester United now joint top of the Premier League.

United look like a different beast this season, though, and with Liverpool winless at home since August the visitors may be tempted to attack more than they have on recent visits - something which could play into the hosts' hands.

Unbeaten Man Utd move top of the Premier League ahead of Manchester City's 3pm trip to Crystal Palace. We were the better side."Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho: "For me second half was a bit of chess, but my opponent didn't open the door for me to win the game".

Matip felt Liverpool would have won the game if he had taken the opportunity.

The Red Devils are in brilliant form heading to Merseyside following a run of six victories and one stalemate in the Premier League so far this season.

United managed just one shot on target and just six touches in the Liverpool penalty area as they repeated last season's goalless draw.

Manchester City will be expected to beat Stoke City at home later today, though, which could force Mourinho to be more aggressive in order to put the pressure on his local rivals by temporarily moving to the top of the table.

The draw was the fourth in succession between the two sides in all competitions, the first time in history that has happened.
