Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have scored 117 goals between them across all competitions since the beginning of the 2017/2018 campaign.
Liverpool’s dynamic front three have shredded oppositions defences during their time together and emerged as one of the most explosive attacking forces in world football.
One thing they are yet to do, however, is score or assist a goal in a Premier League clash with Manchester United. In fact, the wait to do so now sits at a combined 855 minutes, according to official Premier League statistics.
Firmino has scored once in eight meetings with United, with that goal arriving in Liverpool’s 2-0 win in their Europa League last 16 first leg at Anfield during the 2015/2016 season.
Mane is meanwhile yet to find the net against the Reds’ rivals in five matches, whilst Salah has fired blanks in his two games against Jose Mourinho’s side.
Salah entered this weekend as the division’s joint-leading scorer alongside Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with the pair having each scored 10 times so far this season.
Mane is close behind his club teammate on seven goals, with Firmino’s tally of six making him Liverpool’s third-highest scorer.
Whilst individual objectives will always be in the back of a forward’s mind, the main goal come Sunday will be earning the Reds a first league win over United since March 2014.
Manchester City made no mistake in piling on the pressure on Saturday as they beat Everton 3-1 to leapfrog Jurgen Klopp’s side and move two points clear at the top. Time for a response.
