Ways to watch Liverpool v Manchester United on Sky Sports Premier League

Jose Mourinho said Pogba's injury was'long-term and has limited options in midfield

With seven games played we've seen some teams shine and others falter; we've seen some seriously impressive attacking moves and some worryingly basic defensive errors.

Writing for the Mirror, Collymore explained: "In the Sir Alex Ferguson era, United had a great goalkeeper, great defenders, great midfielders and great attackers - and they mopped up".

United's medical staff will assess Jones this week, but there is hope the 25-year-old, who has been in fine form for club and country this season, will be fit enough to line up against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday lunchtime. It's not just a Liverpool problem. Who shows highlights of defending?

Jose Mourinho is set to be without Marouane Fellaini and Paul Pogba against Jurgen Klopp's side. City scored 17 goals in September and conceded 0 in the league.

Pep Guardiola is in the running for his second Barclays Manager of the Month after being named on a four-man shortlist for the September award.

Collymore says the defensive frailty that could cost them against Jose Mourinho's men is nothing new though. The Blues have retained the core of their side, while adding quality in the shape of Alvaro Morata and Bakayoko but have struggled for consistency so far.

Liverpool came into the 2017/18 campaign with great optimism that they could win their first ever Premier League title.

Then you've got Harry Kane leading the line in attack, having registered the most goals previous year in front of one of the brightest young talents in Europe.
