Whatever happens, this Monday should be better than the red Monday of 2016 when Liverpool and Manchester United drew 0-0. Two words we never want to hear again in a match that is considered a classic between the two clubs, yet another edition to be given in a few more hours, just on another Monday since that year.

Erik ten Hag is on a mission to turn this sinking ship around, but two defeats in the first two Premier League games has been a difficult start. For Liverpool, the Klopp era continues to deliver success, even if the Reds are still searching for their first win of the current campaign, with two draws in the opening fixtures so far.

Once again, since 2016, the derby will be on a Monday, but hopefully it won't be another 0-0 draw as it was that year. Liverpool hold a 13-2 aggregate advantage from the last three meetings, and that 5-0 win at Old Trafford was a stake through the heart of Solskjaer's reign as manager. With protests against United's ownership, we could see another sour atmosphere if the result does not go in the home side's favour.

Red Monday

In 2016, Jurgen Klopp went head-to-head against Jose Mourinho at Anfield. The two best clubs in the history of English football. It promised to be one of the best encounters the Premier League has ever seen. It was a cup final, which was strange considering the game was seven days into the new season, with Liverpool and United battling for the top four at the time.

At Anfield, it looked as if Eric Cantona was going to emerge from the tunnel with a burst shirt collar to face Robbie Fowler. Instead of seeing the King and the God, we saw Marouane Fellaini, Chris Smalling and Zlatan Ibrahimovic physically imposing themselves on Liverpool, while taking the life and rhythm out of the game.

Liverpool's side was going through a transition. Loris Karius, Nathaniel Clyne and Dejan Lovren started, while Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino were unable to cause United any problems. It ended 0-0.
