The big Friday Premier League quiz

Liverpool will attempt to reclaim their place as Premier League title front-runners when they tackle great rivals Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.

There is no mistaking the standout fixture of the weekend's games, with the champions looking to nudge back ahead of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team at the top of the table.

A London derby between Fulham and Chelsea is also rich with potential on Saturday, while Sunday also sees Tottenham and Manchester City in action, facing Sheffield United and Crystal Palace respectively.

Before the action begins, test your knowledge of the best of the English top flight with our Opta-fuelled quiz. Check your answers below.

1. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will be taking charge of his 200th Premier League game, and his team have won 127 of the first 199 under the German. Only one manager has won more of his first 200 games in the Premier League, achieving 137 victories. Who is that high achiever?

2. Manchester United's Marcus Rashford is receiving plaudits for his work off the pitch, but he will relish the clash with Liverpool, having scored three goals against the Merseyside giants in his career already. Name the only three United players who have scored more Premier League goals against the Reds than Rashford.
