Manchester United have the chance to put some smiles back at the faces of their supporters at the Anfield on Sunday when they play as guests to Liverpool.
Both sides are eager to improve upon their performance as they both are coming from drawn games in their respective previous league matches.
Defenders Phil Jones, Michael Carrick and Bastian Schweinsteiger are all doubtful for Manchester United whilst Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is nearing a return after a hamstring injury but will not be fit to play and Daniel Sturridge is also still sidelined.
Life in the EPL with its reality should be dawning on Jurgen Klopp and he is very much aware that some games are better played with all passion than a few others. Klopp said: "Sunday is important for the table because we are close together. Both teams need the points. Derbies are the salt in the soup.
"It's a special game for me and for the club. I enjoyed the atmosphere against Arsenal but I think we can do better."
He is can’t walk alone; Manchester United’s manager Louis van Gaal when asked if playing Liverpool is his side's biggest league game, said, "It is how the fans see it. I feel it also already four times.
"We have played each other four times - in the USA and the league. You can see it in the faces of the players.
"The passion to play these kinds of games is very high."
Manchester United who have amassed 34 points from 21 games, their lowest ever tally after 21 games of a Premier League season, comes face-to-face with a Liverpool side who are having a four-match unbeaten league run at Anfield (W2, D2).
Wayne Rooney will be looking to score for Manchester United to out-do Arsenal’s Thierry Henry league record as both are pegged at 175 Premier League goals for the most goals at a single club in the competition's history.
