No one would have thought that Manchester United will sit top of the table given their previous league position.
Pogba’s strike against Burnley sends Man Utd to sit three points above Liverpool in second place.
Liverpool poor run of form have put a dent in the defence of their Premier League title drawing two games and losing one in the process.
Games against teams like Newcastle, West Brom, and Fulham all seemed to be winnable games on paper but the reds faltered.
The game which is set to kickoff at Anfield on Sunday, looks to revive old rivalries between the two clubs as this happens to be top of the table clash. With Man utd leading the table on 3 points.
After Man Utd’s winner against Burnley, Pogba said, “We knew if we won tonight we would be top of the league when we play Liverpool.”
“We have to keep calm, now it is the big moment. We will see what is going to happen.”
Liverpool vs Man Utd – A year unbeaten
Manchester United are now unbeaten in 15 Premier League away fixtures, winning 12 of them, with their last defeat on the road coming at Anfield a year ago.
Goals from Virgil van Dijk and Mo Salah on that occasion left United 30 points behind Jurgen Klopp’s side – it’s been quite the turnaround in a year.
In fact it’s been quite a turnaround in a few months.
United were down in 15th place at the start of November when Arsenal won at Old Trafford. Since then, nine wins and two draws have pushed the former perennial winners back to the top.
This Sunday’s fixture will for sure be a game to watch.
