Man United vs Liverpool
Manchester United are in the midst of some very poor form.
Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed permanently on March 28th, United have won just 17 points in 16 Premier League outings.

This has left the Red Devils down in 12th spot in the Premier League. They are also just two points above the relegation zone.
Man United are unlikely to end their poor spell of form in their first game back after the international break, either.
That is because United must play host to table-topping Liverpool on October 20th.
Liverpool are the only side in the PL to have picked up maximum points from their opening eight league games this season.
One man who Man United may have hoped to have back for the tough clash with Liverpool is Paul Pogba.
Pogba has not featured for Man United since he completed 90 minutes vs Arsenal on September 30th.
Pogba posted a video to his Instagram on Friday, which showed the midfielder training with a cast on one leg.

While Man United fans may have been given some hope by his caption ‘almost there’, the Daily Mail have reported that Pogba looks certain to miss Man United’s clash with Liverpool:
Paul Pogba looks certain to miss next Sunday’s crunch clash against Liverpool, with Manchester United medics fearing he could be sidelined until at least the end of October.
