Manchester United have made a poor start to the Premier League campaign, losing both of their opening fixtures and crushing to the bottom of the table in the process. Now they have their biggest test yet as they host title hopefuls, Liverpool, on Monday evening.

The Red Devils were swept aside by Thomas Frank’s Brentford in West London last weekend – the Bees went on to win 4-0 in a resounding victory at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Now, Erik ten Hag’s side must pick themselves up and go again in the hardest of fashions. When Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool come to town it’s certainly never an easy clash, but this time there’s a lot more than just bragging rights on the line.

Here’s how to watch United’s most highly anticipated game of the season so far – Man Utd vs Liverpool – live on TV.
