Liverpool made the Red Devils pay dearly with one of the most impressive goals of the weekend, making it look easy - just like Salah and Co. have all season.

"The circumstances are changing daily because we keep getting more and more injuries and suspensions", the Spaniard told Sky Sports.

Mohamed Salah has underlined that Liverpool FC "need to win" when they face Manchester United in their crunch Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon. "But we're not in business since yesterday - we know they would come back and they did", he said.

Liverpool haven't just stormed ahead of Manchester United, their blinkered rampage has distanced themselves from the rest of the Premier League pack: 55% of their season completed, and 14 points clear (with a game in hand).

Salah added "It's a game we have to win". Could Jurgen Klopp take the Premier League title from Pep Guardiola's grasp in his own stadium? The German has been a regular during the last few games and is beginning to play with a swagger again. They remain with much to fight for in the league, a semi-final second leg to come in the Carabao Cup, into the fourth round of the FA Cup and the knockout stages in Europe.

The last time the Red Devils won the league was during the 2012-13 season under the Sir Alex Ferguson.

Chiefs' Jones will be active vs. Titans
Henry's 137 rushing yards after contact in last weekend's win over the Ravens were the most in a game in the past 10 postseasons. In that span, Henry has gained 1,273 rushing yards, the third-most in National Football League history.

Manchester United XI vs Liverpool (4-2-3-1): David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Williams; Nemajic Matic, Fred; Mason Greenwood, Andreas Pereira, Daniel James; Anthony Martial.

It was the first time since Arsenal in 2001-02 a team had scored in each of their first 22 league matches and that was the signal for Klopp's side to go through the gears - only for VAR to frustrate them.

The 19th January marks probably the biggest day on the footballing calendar for Manchester United as they travel to Anfield to play Liverpool. "We drew against Liverpool and we beat City, who are the top teams in the Premier League at the moment, so we're confident that we can get three points from any game and that's what we'll be going to do on Sunday".

Keegan's swashbuckling Magpies team led the table by 12 points at the start of 1996, but finished the campaign four points behind Manchester United in second.

The Egypt global sat out the reverse fixture at Old Trafford earlier this season due to an ankle injury, with the game ending 1-1 in what was the only Premier League game the Reds have failed to win this term.

Now that is a record Liverpool do NOT want to break.
