Manchester United and Liverpool top gameweek 21 as the two archrivals play at Old Trafford Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool have won just once against Manchester United in their last six meetings, and that win came in last season’s Europa League.

The Red Devils defeated Liverpool twice in the league last term, tallying four goals and conceeding one over that span.

Both teams are in good form, however, it is Manchester United that is looking the best. The team have only allowed 19 goals this season, the third best in the English Premier League.

Liverpool do have the Premier League’s best attack, but it looked weak and ineffective against Southampton in the teams’ midweek League Cup encounter.

Sadio Mane misses out for Liverpool due to his Africa Cup of Nation’s responsibilities. However, Liverpool should have Philippe Coutinho back. Joel Matip and Jordan Henderson should also return to the line-up.

Manchester United may be without Marcos Rojo due to a muscle injury. Top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to training this week following an illness.

Manchester United’s Eric Bailly, who like Mane, is playing at this month’s AFCON 2017.

Everton vs. Manchester City

Everton will host Manchester City on Sunday afternoon and it could mark the debut of new Toffees’ midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin.

Three of their last four Premier League meetings have ended in draws.

Ilkay Gundogan and Fernando will miss out on the fixture. Everton could have goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg back. However, Yannick Bolaise and Idrissa Gueye are away at AFCON 2017.

Leicester vs. Chelsea

Chelsea travel to Leicester in Saturday’s late game. The Blues were completely dominated by Tottenham last time out and are only five points ahead of second place Liverpool.

Leicester will be without Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani. Both are at the AFCON tournament.

Chelsea defeated Leicester 3-0 earlier this season at Stamford Bridge and have won four of their last six meetings with Leicester.

Swansea vs. Arsenal

New Swansea manager Paul Clements will take on Arsenal as the Swans look for Premier League survival. The two sides have traded wins and losses in their last five meetings.

The Gunners won against Swansea earlier this term at the Emirates, 3-2. Arsenal will be without Theo Walcott and Hector Bellerin due to injury.

Tottenham vs. West Brom Albion

Tottenham host West Brom in Saturday’s early fixture as Spurs hope to capitalise on their recent 2-0 win over Chelsea.

However, the two sides have seen four of their last six meetings end in draws. The last three matches between them have ended 1-1.

Spurs’ Dele Alli has been red hot in recent weeks and comes into Saturday’s match as one of the most transferred players in Fantasy Premier League. He currently leads Spurs’ players with 115 FPL points.
