Liverpool are no longer top of the Premier League. The Reds have surrendered top spot due to a run of three games without a win. Jürgen Klopp will be determined to regain top spot on Sunday. Gary Neville has told Liverpool to expect Man United to make two changes for the crunch tie.
Titanic title race tie
Liverpool were backed to run away with the title again this year.
Things took a drastic turn when the Reds lost their two starting centre backs to knee injuries in the autumn.
Since then Jürgen Klopp somehow managed to steer his side to top of the table.
There has been an unfortunate capitulation in recent games which has let Man United back into the mix, the Red Devils are now three points clear at the top.

Sunday sees the two meet at Anfield with the Reds looking to reclaim their place at the summit.
Liverpool told to expect Man United changes
This week saw Man United scrape past Burnley.
The Red Devils were lucky to finish the game with 11 men on the pitch after Luke Shaw’s shocking first half tackle.
Their 1-0 win put them top of the table. Speaking on Sky Sports, Gary Neville said Liverpool should expect Man United to make changes for the game on Sunday:
“The defence looks more solid, it doesn’t matter if they play Pogba and Matic tonight or whether Sunday, I’m sure it’ll be McTominay and Fred, they’re consistent.
“He’s changing the team around, he’s rotating and he’s getting performances out of all of them, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He’s taken some criticism himself but at the moment it’s going well.”
What RTK has to say
This could be good news.
The last thing we want is Paul Pogba turning up on Sunday.
Whilst the Frenchman has proved mercurial since his arrival in England, he can occasionally change a game.
Scott McTominay and Fred have had strong seasons but we can’t see them winning a battle with Gini Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson.
