The international break is over and the majority of Liverpool’s stars have returned to training – and just in time.
The Reds have struggled in the Premier League recently, winning just one from their last four games.
However, it’s not uncommon for form to go out the window in these sorts of games – and Liverpool will be desperate for a win over their bitter rivals.
Here are six things we spotted in their training session leading up to the big clash.
Klopp enters the training ground with his band of merry men sporting something of a nervous smile.
A victory over United would be the perfect way for his side to get back on track.
The return of Firmino?
Firmino’s poor form led him to being dropped against Newcastle last time out. Looking sharp in training, the Brazilian could well be back in the starting XI for Saturday’s lunch-time clash.
Matip the main man
Liverpool’s frail defence is by no means a secret and Romelu Lukaku and co will be looking to exploit it in any which way they can.
Joel Matip will be heavily relied upon for Saturday and crunch tackles like the one above will be much appreciated by the Anfield faithful.
The 25-year-old’s Liverpool career has been blighted with injuries and he’s recently been linked with a move to St. James’ Park.
All smiles in training, could Ings come back to rescue Klopp in his time of need?
The perfect Daniel Sturridge photo?
Could there be a better photo representing Sturridge’s current situation at Liverpool?
The 28-year-old failed to make an impact against Newcastle and could find himself back on the bench against United.
Moreno’s fine form continues
Unlike Sturridge, Alberto Moreno is having a brilliant time at Liverpool. The Spaniard even scored a scorpion kick in training.
Moreno, whose Liverpool career looked to be over last season, has featured nine times for the Merseyside outfit this campaign.
