Liverpool are the form team after they leapfrogged Manchester City to top the Premier League table with a 4-0 win at Bournemouth on Saturday – their fourth successive league victory.

Meanwhile, United, who were down in 14th place earlier in the campaign, broke into the top six for the first time this season after beating Fulham – ending a four-game run without a win.

Despite the current disparity in league standings, the teams are fairly evenly matched in front of goal, with Liverpool scoring six more times.

United’s difficulties this term primarily stem from defensive frailties. They’ve averaged 1.6 goals conceded per game this season, which is more than twice as frequent as 2017/18, when they conceded just 0.7 per game on average.

Goalkeepers Alisson and David de Gea are the only players to have played every minute this season for their respective clubs, but overall Mourinho has shuffled his pack far more frequently.

While Salah and Romelu Lukaku were outright top scorers in the Premier League for their respective clubs last term, both sides have a broader source of goals this season.

Once again, Salah tops both sides with 10 goals, boosted by his hat-trick at Bournemouth. United’s Anthony Martial is next with seven, with his team-mate Lukaku and Liverpool’s Sadio Mane level on six.
