After Liverpool “did the double” over us during the Moyes season, we got our own back last season and won this fixture 3-0.
Going into this match, there do seem to be quite a few question marks over key players.
At this point it is uncertain whether or not De Gea will make his first appearance of the season, it’s uncertain whether or not the new guy Martial will make his debut and it does appear to be the case that Rooney may well miss out with a hamstring strain.
Liverpool, of course, having already seen Suarez and Sterling go in successive summers now have Sturridge back in training but this match would seem to have arrived too soon for him to put a bit of bite back into what has been a pretty toothless start for Liverpool (just two goals scored in four matches).
Of course, the Champions League matches aside, our own form in front of goal hasn’t been much to write home about and LvG does appear to have left himself with few options.
As always, anything can happen in games against our most bitter rivals and it might go against everything and prove to be a goal-fest but I can’t help but feel that both teams’ lack of firepower will be telling.
