Liverpool head into action against in-form Manchester United on Saturday buoyed by their record when they face fellow members of the Premier League's 'big six'.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has a good record against United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal.

They lost 5-0 at City after being reduced to 10 men but that was only the second defeat they had suffered in 20 league meetings with those five sides since the German took charge in October 2015.

They have won nine of those games, which equates to a win percentage of 45 - considerably higher than the figure for each of the other five clubs over the same period.

BIG SIX CLUBS' PREMIER LEAGUE RECORDS AGAINST EACH OTHER SINCE KLOPP'S APPOINTMENT:

LIVERPOOL

P20 W9 D9 L2 Pts 36 (win percentage 45)

CHELSEA

P21 W7 D7 L7 Pts 28 (win percentage 33)

TOTTENHAM
