Sports Mole looks ahead to the Premier League clash between Liverpool and Manchester United.

Liverpool will be looking to maintain their 100% start to the Premier League when they host Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.

Brendan Rodgers's side have defeated Stoke City and Aston Villa both 1-0 and have impressed with their performances both home and away.

On the other hand, David Moyes's United have picked up four points from their opening two matches of the campaign, hammering Swansea City 4-1 away from home before drawing 0-0 with Chelsea at Old Trafford on Monday.

United will know that winning at Anfield will be a huge boost in their attempt to retain the league title, but will have to do so without the injured trio of Javier Hernandez, Rafael da Silva and Nani.

Meanwhile, Liverpool will take to the pitch without the suspended striker Luis Suarez and are also expected to leave Aly Cissokho, Joe Allen and Kolo Toure out of their squad because of injuries.

However, Martin Skrtel has recovered from his injury and is likely to return to the heart of the Reds defence alongside Daniel Agger, with Jose Enrique expected to start at left-back.
