It is almost exactly a year ago to the day since these two sides last met, when Mohamed Salah raced clear at the Kop end to score Liverpool’s second goal in a 2-0 victory – a goal and result which was widely regarded as the moment Liverpool fans felt confident enough to unleash their first real roar of surety regarding their title drought coming to an end.
Twelve months later, the scene on Sunday will be very different; there will be no fans to witness this firecracker of a contest between these two great rivals and, even if there were, they certainly would not be making any claims that the title is already theirs.
That victory at Anfield sent Liverpool 16 points clear of second-placed Manchester City and a whopping 30 above Man United, yet this time around it is the Red Devils who go into the game as the pace-setters.
A run of 29 points from the last 33 on offer has seen Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side brush off a slow start to the campaign and soar to the top of the Premier League table, with Tuesday’s 1-0 triumph over Burnley lifting them three points above the champions and Sunday’s hosts.
It is the first time Man United have been top after as many as 17 games of a season since Sir Alex Ferguson led them to their 20th title in 2012-13, a tally Liverpool moved back to within one of with their triumph last season.

For all of the dominant periods these two clubs have enjoyed throughout the years, they have only finished as the top two on five previous occasions, and just once in the Premier League era, 12 years ago.
With only four points separating first from fifth it is too early to suggest that that could be the case again this season, but if both sides are able to maintain their title charges then the reverse of this fixture at the start of May is likely to be one of the biggest Liverpool vs. Manchester United showdowns yet
