Liverpool are looking to continue the full mark of the Premier League this season by winning at Manchester United in the ninth round. The Premier League resumes after a period of absence due to the international suspension. Liverpool have won all eight of their matches so far, eight points behind leaders Manchester City. The team is seeking to repeat its victory in the ninth game in a row, and also to achieve its first victory at Manchester Stadium in five years (March 2014 3-0).
Liverpool are now threatening their fourth defeat of the season and are now 18 points behind, with Liverpool now leading 24 points, nine ahead of United in 12th place.
Liverpool's morale seems to be high for the first time since 1990. Liverpool last won their first eight Premier League games in 1991. But German coach Juergen Klopp has to deal with the matter objectively, as his side were top of the league. Nine points in one stage of the competition last season, but eventually lost the title by one point from City. A goalless draw at Old Trafford in February saw Liverpool lose two crucial points in last season's Champions League clash with City. Manchester have struggled this season. Liverpool could recapture Brazilian goalkeeper Alison and defender Joel Matip.
Manchester United, meanwhile, are missing Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea and French playmaker Paul Pogba, but another French striker Anthony Martial could catch up.
Elsewhere, Manchester City are looking to increase pressure on arch-rivals Liverpool by beating sixth-placed Crystal Palace at home.
Crystal Palace beat City last season, so the game could be a chance for revenge. City are in a state of technical stability with most of their players ready after the return of Belgian Kevin De Bruyne and John Stones from injury.
Argentine striker Sergio Aguero will be fit to play despite a traffic accident on his way to training on Wednesday, Sky Sports reported that Aguero did not suffer any serious injuries or injuries during the incident, and it was not necessary to show the player to the club doctors. The photos taken by witnesses of the accident on social networks showed a fracture in the right front frame of Aguero with some damage in the right front of the car, but without significant damage in the rest of the car. Third-placed Arsenal are due to meet Sheffield United tomorrow.
Leicester City will be able to grab a third place from Arsenal even if temporarily when they host Burnley today. Bottom-of-the-table Watford are aiming to improve their position relatively, when they travel to ninth-placed Tottenham Hotspur. Elsewhere, Everton will face West Ham United, Aston Villa, Brighton and Newcastle United. Wolverhampton also face Southampton and Bournemouth with Norwich City.
Man's loss to Liverpool will be his fourth
This season, will widen the difference between him and Liverpool
