A late comeback against Palace masks some of the cracks at United, who despite winning six of their last eight haven’t been as impressive as their opponents ahead of this clash. Liverpool only sit two points behind Mourinho’s side after winning eight of their last 10, netting at least twice in nine of these games, and with three clean sheets in their last five they’ve even added some defensive steel. However, these shut-outs came against bottom-six teams Huddersfield, Southampton and Newcastle, while both teams have foundthe net in seven of Liverpool’s eight road trips to top-six sides since the start of last season.

 

Liverpool were a very even W2-D4-L2 across these games, with three 1-1 draws including this fixture last term, and in fact each of the last four meetings across all competitions between these two has finished in a `stalemate. Only one of Mourinho’s six games against fellow top-six teams this term has been settled by more than a single goal one way or the other, and with the Reds currently homing in on second place, we’re hunkered down for another ‘Jose special’ as this game inevitably looks like being stifled with straight-jacket tactics.

 

Mo Salah will be looking to score for the 16th time in 19 league outings and he’s been no flat-track bully with goals against City, Spurs, Arsenal and Chelsea during this spell. He’s been a consistent threat all season and may feel he has something to prove against Mourinho, who never got the best out of him during their time together at Chelsea
