Coton: Always a hard test at Anfield

Tony Coton believes  Manchester United always face a “hard test” when they travel to face Liverpool at Anfield .

Jose Mourinho has enjoyed an unbeaten start to his second season in charge at Old Trafford and will meet Jurgen Klopp's side on Saturday lunchtime, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

Manchester United lie second in the table, trailing their neighbours Manchester City on goal difference, and will look to move 10 points clear of Liverpool with a victory at, but the former United goalkeeping coach suggests the meeting will be a "good benchmark" of their title credentials.

Coton now believes that the standout fixture in the domestic campaign for United is when they meet their city rivals, who appear set to provide the strongest opposition in their bid to claim their 21st league title and their first since the 2012-13 season.
