The gap between Liverpool and Manchester United last season could not have been any bigger. Not only did Liverpool finish 34 points ahead of their North West rivals, but they also defeated them by an aggregate score of 9-0 across their two league meetings.

Just under 11 months ago, United were beaten 4-0 at Anfield, registering just two shots and 28 per cent possession in an incredibly one-sided affair.

But Sunday's trip to Merseyside is an opportunity for United to show just how far they have come under Erik ten Hag. In their line-up last season, the Red Devils fielded a back three of Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire, while Paul Pogba was in midfield.
