Manchester United are currently on their longest winless run against Liverpool since 2002, having failed to beat the Reds in their last four Premier League matches.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will head into Sunday's clash between the two teams at the top of the table, three points clear of Liverpool, who have dropped into third position behind Leicester City.
United have won five of their last six in the league to rise to the summit, while they are unbeaten in England's top flight since the start of November.
However, the 20-time English champions have gone four league games without a victory over Liverpool, which is their longest winless run against the Merseyside giants since March 2000 to January 2002.
The two teams shared the points in a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford last season, but Jurgen Klopp's side recorded a 2-0 victory at Anfield courtesy of goals from Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah.
United's last league success at Anfield was a 1-0 victory in January 2016.
