Liverpool will end Manchester United's unbeaten run with a victory at Anfield this weekend, according to John Barnes.

The former Everton star has netted seven times in as many Premier League games, while Matic has commanded United's midfield.

"And yet the Liverpool manager is expected to compete with United and beat them, exactly as Klopp did - winning two league titles in Germany against Bayern Munich with a fraction of their spending".

Manchester United face four consecutive away trips in all competitions before current high-flying Spurs visit Old Trafford on October 28 and the football geeks all over the globe will be curious to see if Mourinho's men can continue their early season form into the latter weeks of the campaign.

Use the "upvote" button in the three polls below for your favourite right-back, centre-back and left-back, and do not forget to have your say throughout the week as we name the best Liverpool-Manchester United XI over the past 25 years. "He is the right man for the job and that's going to take five years, not two years". £75 million summer signing Romelu Lukaku seems to have fit in perfectly in the famous red shirt, scoring 10 goals in just nine appearances so far, while Marouane Fellaini appears more important than ever after few awful initial years at Manchester United, although he has been ruled out for at least a month with a knee injury.

The likes of Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini are out of the game but that gives last season's Player of the Season, Ander Herrera who has struggled to make a mark on the team this season.

'They are very open, they are very attack-minded - whereby one team attacks and leaves the defence to defend for themselves.

'If they go all-out attack against Liverpool, which they are under pressure do because they are Man United and they are top of the league, then I think Liverpool will win'.

In-form striker Romelu Lukaku should also be fully fit after missing Belgium's World Cup qualifier against Bosnia and Herzegovina with an ankle problem.
