Manchester United: Paul Pogba returns, but United's injury list is long, and when the squad probably isn't good enough to win this one, you can imagine what a weakened squad is expected to do. United must limit its mistakes in defense, but lacking so much creativity and finishing, it's hard to see them scoring more than a goal.
Liverpool: The Reds are the heavy favorite and are expected to win by multiple goals. They are also boosted by the return of star goalkeeper Alisson, who has missed a couple months due to injury. The Reds have 20 goals in eight games this season and have conceded a league-best six goals.
