Jose Mourinho faces selection headache ahead of United's trip to Anfield

£75 million summer signing Romelu Lukaku seems to have fit in perfectly in the famous red shirt, scoring 10 goals in just nine appearances so far, while Marouane Fellaini appears more important than ever after few awful initial years at Manchester United, although he has been ruled out for at least a month with a knee injury.

The likes of Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini are out of the game but that gives last season's Player of the Season, Ander Herrera who has struggled to make a mark on the team this season.

"It always felt that way when I played at Anfield that if you can get through that first 30 minutes then it becomes a different game and you can start to play a bit more".

And the presence of Martial alongside him could bring Liverpool to breaking point.

"It suits Mourinho in terms of his mentality".

Manchester United's all seven opponents so far this campaign are now placed in the bottom half of the league table which evidently suggests that they will face more resilient opponents in the weeks to come. What I would expect is similar tactics from last season but with more ambition on the counter-attack.

A tactical masterclass is expected to be on show when Manchester United travel to Liverpool in what is our biggest test of the Premier League season so far.

"There's obviously less home grown talent but the atmosphere will be brilliant and it is a game which you dare not lose as a player". There was always too much at stake.

It is also the start of a tough period of fixtures before the next worldwide break which includes matches against Tottenham and Chelsea.

'They have had the upper hand against all of the top five teams because of the nature of the way those games are played.

Liverpool have also been dealt a hefty blow in the build-up to the game, with star forward Sadio Mané out injured.
