Manchester United face the first real test of their Premier League title ambitions against rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
United sit second in the table - level on points with leaders Manchester City - after a superb start to the season, winning six of their seven opening games and scoring 21 goals in the process. But Jose Mourinho's side are yet to face any other realistic title contenders, and Liverpool will be desperate to make a statement against the Red Devils.
Klopp has been dealt a huge blow with the news that Sadio Mane is out for six weeks. Mane will miss this weekend's match as well as a big clash against Tottenham, and is a doubt to face Chelsea on November 25. Roberto Firmino was left out against the Magpies, but will likely start against United.
Midfielder Adam Lallana (thigh) is running outside again but is still several weeks from a comeback while right-back Nathaniel Clyne is also recovering well from a back injury.
Mourinho is still set to be without Paul Pogba after confirming that he thinks of the midfielder as a "long-term" injury problem, while Marouane Fellaini will also miss out after damaging his knee ligaments on international duty for Belgium.
Michael Carrick is out in a further midfield setback, but Romelu Lukaku has recovered.
With United lacking the height of Fellaini and Pogba, Mourinho could be tempted to play a three-man defence, bring Ander Herrera into midfield for added security before throwing on the likes of Anthony Martial to make an impact in the second half.
Liverpool’s players have been well-travelled over the international break and could face a disadvantage and fatifue on several players, with the squad travelling a total of 75,484 miles by the time they return to Anfield for the return of the Premier League; 5,793 miles further than the Man Utd Squad (69,691 miles).
If you are expecting many goals you come to the wrong game. This game will be tight, hard fought tactical battle.
No one of the teams want to give away easy chances so expect many players on each side of the half. No one wants to start with a goal in their back.
Excellent chance for goalless first 45 minutes.
