In most climes, red often signifies danger and a dangerous situation is feared for either Manchester United or Liverpool in the 'Battle of Reds' at Old Trafford this Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp's side desperately need to win in order to move back top of the Premier League, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has won 11 out of 13 games since taking charge after Jose Mourinho's sacking.

A home defeat for the Red Devils is counter productive for their realistic top-four chase while a victory for Liverpool would see the Reds complete a rare double against their big rivals, having only achieved the feat five times during the Premier League era - the last of which was in 2013/14.

Back in December Liverpool won 3-1 with Sadio Mané opening the scoring on 24 minutes before Jesse Lingard equalised 9 minutes later.

The Reds secured the points with goals from Xherdan Shaqiri (73 & 80 minutes) who in doing so became the first Liverpool substitute to score twice in a game against United.

Two days after the game Jose Mourinho lost his job as United boss.

It was the Reds biggest win over United at Anfield since the 3-1 victory in March 2011.

Last season United won 2-1 at Old Trafford with Marcus Rashford scoring twice in the opening 24 minutes, only for Eric Bailly to score an own goal in the second half. 

The background above all points to a fiesty clash looming at Old Trafford this weekend.

For Mo Salah, he has an extra motivation for this Super Sunday clash as he is just one goal away from scoring 50 in the league for Liverpool.

He will be doing that in fewer games than any other player in the club's history. T

his is his 63rd game and the record is currently held by Fernando Torres (72 matches).
