Klopp ready for 'big one'
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp knows his side face an in-form Manchester United on Sunday as they look to go back to the top of the table.
Klopp will again be without defensive duo Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez on Sunday afternoon because of a hamstring injury and a broken leg respectively.
Fellow centre-back Virgil van Dijk returns to bolster the back-line after missing the midweek draw against Bayern Munich because of suspension.
Liverpool will go back to the top of the Premier League table if they avoid defeat against their north-west rivals - with Manchester City taking on Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final later on Sunday.
Looking ahead to the derby, Klopp added: "It's a big one and we know that it's a difficult one as well. They are in a good moment, they are physically strong, they defend well, they attack well.
"They are full of confidence. We will go there and try everything to get a result there. You never know, two strong teams will face each other. It's open until the final whistle."
