Liverpool and Manchester United are two of the most succesful clubs in the history of English football. They are locked in an eternal battle to secure the most silverware.

However, there are times over their decades of dominance where one of the clubs is not up to par or gets left behind.

We might be in one of those phases as Liverpool have once again found themselves battling at the summit of the Premier League and battling in Europe while United are out of European football altogether and can't find any momentum in the league.

However, as we prepare for the next chapter in this storied rivalry, Liverpool cannot afford to take United lightly.

While they have not been playing well as a unit, there is still individual talent that can hurt the Reds if they come out disengaged.

Bruno Fernandes missing out due to yellow card accumulation is a massive blow for the Red Devils as he is arguably their best creative force when he is on his game.

It does not need to be another 7-0 shellacking, although I won't gripe if it is. However, I am looking for a comprehensive performance from Klopp's men. Especially on a weekend where Manchester City dropped more points once again.

You can never go into a match of this significance expecting to steamroll the opposition, but you can certainly expect to see both sides coming out with an edge and aura to them.

This feels like a match that would be calling for the physical gifts of a Darwin Nunez. Whether that be on a counter with his blistering pace or winning a towering header, I think Nunez will leave his stamp on this match.

These opportunities do not come around very often, to drive a stake into the heart of Manchester United. Liverpool can signal a new era of dominance if they bring home the right result.

There will be no better manager to have them fired up and locked in then Klopp. Hopefully the goals flow for Liverpool while the questions fly at Old Trafford. An early holiday gift for Reds fans, please.
