If Manchester United can pick up three points in their next game, they would join Liverpool at the summit of the Premier League table.

Manchester United have had a great start to the season and look like title contenders as we head into the new year. The brilliance of Bruno Fernandez has elevated United back to serious challengers for the Premier League.

Despite being ravaged by injuries, Liverpool still sit top of the Premier League table going into 2021.  Jurgen Klopp’s men have not been as ruthless in comparison to the last few seasons but the champions still lead the pack in the race to become champions of England once more.

Liverpool as defending champions will be looking to win a second consecutive title but with United hot on their heels, we could see the classic rivalry turn into a frantic title chase.

The last time the rivals battled for the title was almost a decade ago. It would be brilliant to see two giants of football fight for the title once again.
