Manchester United and Liverpool have had very different starts to the 2019/20 Premier League season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are languishing in 12th place in the table with a paltry two wins to their name.
The Red Devils’ squad is looking threadbare, to say the least, and a big battle to achieve a top-four finish appears to be on the horizon.
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp’s men are flying high in first place with a 100% record. In short, things could not be going much better for the Redmen.
The Merseysiders boast an eight-point lead at the summit and will equal Manchester City’s record of 18 consecutive top-flight victories if they win at Old Trafford this weekend.
With the two sides experiencing such contrasting fortunes, squad comparisons have been a significant talking point in the build up to Sunday’s game.

So, with that in mind, we asked one Manchester United fan and one Liverpool fan to sit down and rank each set of players’ performances this season from worst to best – in one combined list.
