Liverpool’s 17 games winning run in the Premier League ended last week as they kept it late to salvage a point against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Adam Lallana stuck 5 minutes before injury time to cancel out Marcus Rashford’s first-half strike.
Rashford’s strike, just after the hour mark, was United’s 1,999th goal in the Premier League. No other team has managed to score more goals than United in the Premier League era.
Liverpool, who are unbeaten in last 44 home games, face a tough challenge on Sunday as they host Tottenham Hotspur, who also salvaged a late point at home against Watford.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored United’s 1,000th Premier League goal at Fulham which virtually ended United’s three-year-long wait for a PL title in 2007.
Spurs have won just twice in their last 5 games in the league and will be keen on breaking Liverpool’s impressive home record.
A Spurs win in at Anfield would mean the world to Man City, if they win their match against Aston Villa at the Etihad on Saturday.
Man City could, even, tie Liverpool by the time they meet at Anfield in a couple of week’s time.
Matchday 10 of the Premier League kicks off with Leicester, third in the table, facing a trip to Southampton.
Leicester will move to second with a slim advantage of a point over Man City.
However, if they fail to get anything from the south coast, they might slip up to 5th if Chelsea and Arsenal win their respective games against Burnley and Crystal Palace.
Chelsea travels to Burnley in search of a fourth straight Premier League win for the season.
After Monday’s 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United, Arsenal will be looking to bounce back as they host Crystal Palace on Sunday.
