Seriously?

In 855 minutes of football, the Reds’ attacking trio have failed to breach their enemy’s defence and will be hoping to fix that on Sunday

Goals and assists. That’s what you associate with Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, isn’t it?

Well, ordinarily yes, but not against Manchester United.

Liverpool welcome Jose Mourinho’s side to Anfield on Sunday, with the Reds a whopping 16 points clear of their north west rivals.

It is the most United have trailed Liverpool in the league table before Christmas since 1990.

United fans, though, can take heart in the knowledge that Liverpool’s main threat up front have yet to breach their side’s defence.

Incredibly, Firmino, Salah and Mane have not scored or even created a goal in a Premier League game against Man United in 855 minutes of football.

Roberto Firmino: 40 goals, 24 assists since 2015
